Dragging myself out of the gymnasium and down the hall, I try and get to the side double-doors. But with no one here to help me, it's difficult. I need to sit for a moment out on the steps leading to the back field and gather myself.

My legs become heavier as I get to the doors. The cyclone happening inside my head is growing thicker while my vision is so unclear I can barely make out any objects.

Stumbling down the first step, I barely recognize where I am.

“What’s happening?” I think I say.

There’s a cacophony of dense sounds; a combination of white noise, mumbling, and a beat which doesn’t make sense.

My eyes are now so heavy I can barely open them and my legs are completely weighted as I attempt to make my way down the stairs. I think I’m going to pass out.

Omg where do I begin, I really hope my review can do this book justice.

I have to say at the start of this book I wasn't sure I could get through this book,  as it covers a subject close to my heart, but I'm so glad I kept reading and I really believe every teenage girl should read this book. 
I loved that this book is written through the eyes of a sixteen year old and that the author has managed to give us how 16 year olds think. 
It's my fault and no one will believe what I'm saying happened that night at the prom. Who do you trust and what happens when even your best friends walk away.
Dakota had all of these feelings and you find yourself feeling her sorrow, her emotions and her inner turmoil. I cried for Dakota and what she was having to deal with.
This story made me realise how we as adults react to situations like this and what is the first thing we think when we are told "I was raped" and it's not always the right thoughts....
This is an amazing well written book and I thank Margaret McHeyzer for giving me a chance to read and review.

Author Bio

There's something about the written word that is pure magic.

Possibly it's the fact there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering they're capable to change our lives.

How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?

I like to think of myself as 'unique'. My stories aren't for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be 'normal'.

Normal is subjective.

I prefer to be known as a person who's never been 'bound by custom' but is 'unique by choice'.

I hope you do read and enjoy my stories.
