Publisher's Summary

Some girls say no. Some boys don't listen.

When Grace meets Ian, she's afraid. Afraid he'll reject her like the rest of the school, like her own family. After she accuses Zac, the town golden boy, of rape, everyone turns against her. Ian wouldn't be the first to call her a slut and a liar.

Except Ian doesn't reject her. He's the one person who looks past the taunts and the names and the tough-girl act to see the real Grace. He's the one who gives her the courage to fight back.

He's also Zac's best friend.

Much needed literature

Truly phenomenal and something every teen should read and find something to resonate with. I can not put in to words how inspiring, and eye opening this much needed literature is.

Wow

Where does Some Boys rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a story that every teenager should listen too. Having been in this situation, I wish I had Grace’s strength.

Which scene was your favorite?

The whole book was awesome can’t pick just one scene.

Any additional comments?

This is a tough subject but a real problem in life. Doing the right thing sometimes is the hardest thing to do and Grave’s type of forgiveness, breath taking.

I laughed, I cried, I got angry

This book reminds me of an older movie, She Fought Alone. But it's more relevant because it adds the element of social media, which didn't exist at the time of that movie. I got angry with everyone, including Ian, throughout this book. The thing about young men like Zach is that people around them often know they are monsters and they choose to ignore it. Grace was the strongest, most beautiful character I've ever had the pleasure of being acquainted with. This books shows the ugly truth that is rape culture. It's important that we start teaching young men and women that not only is rape not ok but the mob mentality of bullying other people is just as damaging as the sexual assault.

Great story about a serious topic

I liked that the story dealt with a very real subject that affects a lot of people. Grace was strong but not inhuman and I liked that she tried to teach her classmates about consent and women's rights. The narration was ok, the male narrator didn't really sound like a teen so the words didn't match the voice. But overall a good story, even paced.
