You Against me – Jenny Downham

8720917

The interesting thing about this book is that none of the characters are likable, as you feel irritated with all of them from beginning to end. However, the writing is so captivating that you will fly through the book in no time. It is like following a court case, and you are simply in the back seat observing the whole thing.

The topic of rape is of course a harsh one, however I believe that it is important to talk about. The book isn’t sugar – coated, as it shows the aftermath of rape. The court cases, the accusations from friends and family, loss of friends, anger and much more. Same goes for the victim, as it shows how our in our society, people believe that if a girl is raped ” she was asking for it”. The aftermath shows the fear of the girl, and the destruction of her family.

This is an absolute must read! 5/5 stars
