It’s the beginning of the summer in a small town in Ireland. Emma O’Donovan is eighteen years old, beautiful, happy, confident.
One night, there’s a party. Everyone is there. All eyes are on Emma.
The next morning, she wakes on the front porch of her house. She can’t remember what happened, she doesn’t know how she got there.
She doesn’t know why she’s in pain.
But everyone else does. Photographs taken at the party show, in explicit detail, what happened to Emma that night.
But sometimes people don’t want to believe what is right in front of them, especially when the truth concerns the town’s heroes . . .
This is the book for 2015 when it comes to a rollercoaster of a read .I sat and read this in a fedw hours and genuinely felt like id been chewed up and spat out.
This book will make you think and feel so many emotions and is a must read for everyone .
This author is in a league of her own when it comes to pushing the boundaries .
Her debut novel only ever yours was a disturbing and chilling read which both me and my daughter loved .
She is a force to be reckoned with in the YA genre ,but I believe her books are important to be read by everyone .She deals with huge issues that need and should be talked about.
In asking for it you are hit with some uncomfortable reading and like many bloggers before me I did have to pause and take a deep breath .I have a teenage daughter so this hugely affected me but also as a woman in her own right .
This is a shocking read that hits you hard and will leave you with a heavy heart and thick head .
Louises writing is blunt and direct, also her endings leave with many unanswered questions .
Go read and force yourself to reassess past and present opinions you have had on rape .
What can we expect from this author in the future ?
Highly powerful and hard hitting book .
