I almost feel guilty for not liking this very much, given the subject matter and all, but there was a lot wrong with it. I just couldn't get past the lack of character development. Everyone seemed so flat to me. And the pacing was totally off. There were times when too much time would pass between paragraphs that I had to go back and read a passage or two to figure out the jump in time. I'm not saying that this book had time travel. It was just hard to keep up with how much time had passed paragraph to paragraph.

It's easy to feel awful for the MC, Valerie. You know what happens to her. That's a terrible thing to experience. But this book is way too short to develop the way a story about rape should. Too many details are rushed, and too many details didn't matter much throughout the novel. Obviously, this is an ARC, so maybe some things will change before final copies are printed, but I'm reviewing the ARC. And it needs editing. Bad.
