I saw Elizabeth Wetmore speak at a virtual book festival back in the summer and had been looking forward to reading her novel since then. This book opens with the brutal rape of a 14-year-old girl and follows what happens from the time of the crime to the court case. This book is told from the points of view of many different characters, and I found it really interesting how little the 14-year-old got a voice in the book compared to the other characters in the town. This was a good, but sad read.
