Haunting and compelling YA about a 9th grade girl and her response to a recent trauma. Told in the first person, the depiction of her despair and gradual acceptance as she goes through a school year in which no one knows what she’s been through will stay with you. It’s a difficult book to read, and I’d recommend it for 9th grade and up. Her attack is not unduly graphic, but it is specific, as is the bleakness of her despair while she feels too guilty to tell anyone. Excellent book.
