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.
"A bold and necessary look at an important, and very real, topic. Everyone should read this book." — Jennifer Brown, author of Thousand Words and Hate List
A gut-wrenching, powerful love story told from alternating points of view by the acclaimed author of Send.
Wow. Where do I even begin? It's past 2am and I've just finished reading Some Boys after starting it yesterday. I heard about this book some months ago and preordered it because the story appealed to me from the beginning. I read a lot of books that shed light on the rape culture in our society, and this is by far the best book I have ever come across in that subgenre. In fact, because I am who I am and the way this was written with such valid arguments, it's my new favorite book. To be honest, there were many instances I read a few pages and went back to reread them just because I loved the content so much. I recommend this novel to anyone and everyone.These characters may be "fictional" but truly reflect real people with unflinchingly real thoughts...so real that it makes you want to castrate them (that's right, Ian, I'm talking about you). I laughed, I cried, I scowled, I fell in love. Thank you, Ms. Patty Blount, for writing such a devastatingly beautiful book. I know I'm going to rave to everyone because this is as perfect as a novel can get. There is so much more I could say, but I think I couldn't ever stop if I started.
Best ever in the world
This book has you thinking about it and loving it every step of the way, best book I've ever read!!!!
