Mara and Owen are about as close as twins can get. So when Mara's friend Hannah accuses Owen of rape, Mara doesn't know what to think. Can the brother she loves really be guilty of such a violent crime? Torn between the family she loves and her own sense of right and wrong, Mara is feeling lost, and it doesn't help that things have been strained with her ex-girlfriend and best friend since childhood, Charlie.

As Mara, Hannah, and Charlie navigate this new terrain, Mara must face a trauma from her own past and decide where Charlie fits in her future. With sensitivity and openness, this timely novel confronts the difficult questions surrounding consent, victim blaming, and sexual assault.

Yeah, and in scenarios like that everyone believes the girl, because why should she lie. So much controversy

Not sure if I should read your updates for the rest of the book, as this one happened like 10% after this update in my ebook. So I didn’t know about this when I read your comment.


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 48942 comments Mod
Oh man! How strange!

janel (liiterary) | 450 comments Hopping on here, don't mind me <3
I really loved this so much, I can't even understand how badly I needed something like this right now. It's such a complicated story (much like "the female of the species") and I didn't expect it at all. Brutal, made me cry so much


janel (liiterary) | 450 comments Shae wrote: "Finished [spoilers removed]"

I completely agree - (view spoiler)


janel (liiterary) | 450 comments I'll also say that (view spoiler)


janel (liiterary) | 450 comments I really want my friend Jaye to read this, but it seems like a hard book to recommend, you know? It was gut-wrenching, i read it in one sitting when i should have been sleeping, and every interaction that showed how far these traumas bury themselves in people had me trying not to cry.

Agreed, this was such a different ending but it was fitting for this book

That author's note itself was pretty damn good


message 40: by Jaye (new) - rated it 4 stars

Jaye Berry | 907 comments I'm glad I read this one though because I think I was just going to find something else but this was well worth it. So hard hitting
