Publisher Description

From the award-winning author of Some Boys comes an unflinching examination of rape culture that delves into a family torn apart by sexual assault.

It’s been two years since the night that changed Ashley’s life. Two years since she was raped by her brother’s teammate. And a year since she sat in a court and watched as he was given a slap on the wrist sentence. But the years have done nothing to stop the pain.

It’s been two years of hell for Derek. His family is totally messed up and he and his sister are barely speaking. He knows he handled it all wrong. Now at college, he has to come to terms with what happened, and the rape culture that he was inadvertently a part of that destroyed his sister’s life. 

When it all comes to head at Thanksgiving, Derek and Ashley have to decide if their relationship is able to be saved. And if their family can ever be whole again.

So moving and absolutely incredible

I went into this not quite knowing what to expect but I was blown away. The character development is phenomenal and this book was written so well to handle such a dark subject. I would definitely recommend

This book is one of the best books I have ever read. You get a real look at the effects of rape on not only the victim but the friends and family. I am in tears. As a victim myself, I have never read such an accurate portrayal of recovery. I wish everybody could read this book, maybe things would change.
