I think that this book is a good book for anyone who is grieving or is struggling to become who they are. It's about a high school senior who recently lost her ex boyfriend and another friend to suicide. Although she remains close with her other friends, she still misses them every day and has problems learning to cope. She finds hope in a 22 year old student teacher who she thinks is a great guy. He tragically tries to rape her and learns she is not the first. Eventually with the help of close friends, she learns that it is not her fault and forgives herself. This is a very inspiring book for anyone who is in need of break. Maybe it will inspire someone to believe in themselves.
