3 and a half stars

This book explores the aftermath of rape and how the victim continues to be victimized. Rape Girl is about a teenage girl named Valerie who is raped by her crush. It then goes on to show how there are people who will always blame the victim of rape, instead of opening their eyes to the harsh reality of the truth.

I won't say anything else about the plot. Except, (view spoiler)

It was a fast paced read and I enjoyed the writing style. I guess I couldn't give it 5 stars because I couldn't help but compare it to Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, which I loved so much.

(Thanks to Netgalley for letting me read this book in exchange for an honest review.)

Angela I loved this book! To think, I was in two minds about requesting it as well. I've not read 'Speak', is it a similar theme?

Lisa Speak is of a similar theme but I LOVED the way the subject was handled, plus Laurie Halse Anderson is a fantastic writer.

Angela Hmm, I'll check that out, thanks.
