"The world needs this story. And you will want to read it. Trust me." --Laurie Halse Anderson on this taut, thought-provoking novel that deals with rape from the accused's point of view, repackaged as part of the distinguished Atheneum Collection.
Keir is a good guy. He is a senior in high school, well liked, and respected by his friends and family. So how could he be a rapist? Yet that is what Gigi, the love of his life, says he is. Keir doesn't understand. He loves Gigi. He would never do anything to hurt her. But apparently, he has. Alternating between the present day and flashbacks, Keir recounts the events that led up to his night with Gigi...and discovers something inexcusable.
Brilliantly crafted and much acclaimed, this is a riveting tale of truth, lies, and responsibility--a tale every teenager should read.
