Some Boys / Patty Blount / 339 pages / Scary November Challenge

Grace is "invisible - unless you want sex, the [she's] low-hanging fruit." At least that's what she thinks.  She was raped by the star goalie on the lacrosse team and when her accusation...and some pictures Zac took...go public, her life becomes a living hell.  Her former friends and the entire school turn on her, keying her car, calling her names.  Her dad is too busy with his new family.  Thank goodness her mom is there for her and helps calm her frequent panic attacks.  When Grace and Ian, a lacrosse team member and friend of Zac, are assigned locker clean-up detention over spring break, sparks ignite and the truth comes to light.

  1. This book sounds awful. Hopefully, Grace is able to build her self-esteem back up.
