The story begins with Keir arguing with Gigi about the events which occurred on the night of the senior prom. It then moves on the recount Keir's senior year of high school from his first-person narrative. The story flips back and forth from the argument between Keir and Gigi, leading to the revelation that Gigi has accused him of raping her. He tells Gigi that he loves her, and would never do such a thing because he is "such a good guy." Keir goes over the events of his senior year that led to this night, and how this could have happened.

This was actually a really hard story to read. We get these glimpses of the morning after prom, and then these huge detailed portions of Keir's senior year. It's a good book about how someone can believe that they didn't commit any wrong doing and helps readers understand that self-justification of an act does not make it right. But it was pretty hard to get through, not because of the content, but just the way the story is written.
