Gina Bacigalupi Hi there, again. I'm now looking for a book for a friend. She said that the boy in the book is unhappy, and realizes at the end that he has been molested. He had been repressing the memory. Any ideas?

Perhaps you can get your friend to join goodreads and give more details.


Gina Bacigalupi yes!! perks of being a wallflower. thanks.

Yes, ideally it's best to not put spoilers in the subject heading and to give some warning that there are spoilers if they are present in the comment box.

We now have spoiler warnings for within these messages! See the (some html is ok) link above the comment box!

But, one of the pitfalls of this group is that sometimes members remember only enough about a book that they have to give spoilers to give sufficient information about it, enough so that others can help them find it.

Jen, I'm sorry you got spoilers for this book. I know how disappointing that can be.
