Description from Goodreads:
Valerie always wanted to be the smart girl. The pretty girl. The popular girl.
But not the rape girl.
That’s who she is now. Rape Girl. Because everyone seems to think they know the truth about what happened with Adam that day, and they don’t think Valerie’s telling it.
Before, she had a best friend, a crush, and a close-knit family. After, she has a court case, a support group, and a house full of strangers.
The real truth is, nothing will ever be the same.
Rape Girl is the compelling story of a survivor who does the right thing and suffers for it. It is also the story of a young woman’s struggle to find the strength to fight back
" When Mom asked me earlier what I was thankful for, I hadn't been able to think of a thing. Instead I burst into tears and told her everything. Well, almost everything. " (Loc. 29 of 1282 of e-book)
I'm still digesting this read because it was so intense.....
