College freshman Elizabeth Mason grew up with every advantage, but her life is thrown into chaos after a violent encounter
Elizabeth Mason’s parents always strived for the best for their daughter, sparing no expense on her education and upbringing. Now, on the verge of her freshman year at prestigious Layton College, Elizabeth has grown into a brilliant and compassionate young woman, if a little spoiled and naïve. But when a senior tennis star named Jimmy date rapes her during freshman orientation, Elizabeth’s once-tranquil life is shattered. Humiliated and guilt-ridden, she slips numbly through her first months of college before reporting the assault—a decision that launches her on a crusade to bring Jimmy to justice, one way or another. In this powerful and affecting novel, Corman explores the devastating repercussions—both private and public—of campus date rape and the double standards surrounding sexuality for young men and women. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Avery Corman, including rare images from the author’s personal collection.
