Some Boys by Patty Blount

Some BoysSome boys go too far. Some boys will break your heart. But one boy can make you whole.

When Grace meets Ian she's afraid. Afraid he'll reject her like the rest of the school, like her own family. After she accuses the town golden boy of rape, everyone turns against Grace. They call her a slut and a liar. But...Ian doesn't. He's funny and kind with secrets of his own.

But how do you trust the best friend of the boy who raped you? How do you believe in love?

A gut-wrenching, powerful love story told from alternating points of view by the acclaimed author of Send.

REVIEW: ****

This was an excellent book. It highlighted a topic that is not spoken of much in books and I think should be discussed more often with young girls. Its tragic, but true that the stereotypes of rape victims, or what exactly constitutes rape is often blamed on the victim herself. I think this was well written, with a pertinent topic in todays world. recommend this one highly.
