Detailed book overview
Kate Weston can’t fully recall the events that transpired last Saturday at John Doone's party.
Although she remembers a few things, all that suddenly changes when a picture of an unconscious Stacey, on Deacon Mills's shoulder, surfaces online the following morning.
A huge debate soon follows after Stacey presses charges against four of Kate's classmates.
When some truth comes to light, Kate finds herself with more questions than answers.
Did anyone see what happened to Stacey? If so, should they come out and reveal the truth?
Inspired by the Steubenville rape case, this gripping book explores the fine line between being guilty and being innocent.
