Exit, Pursued by a Bear

by

Hermione Winters is captain of her cheerleading team, and in tiny Palermo Heights, this doesn’t mean what you think it means. At PHHS, the cheerleaders don’t cheer for the sports teams; they are the sports team—the pride and joy of a tiny town. The team’s summer training 25528801.jpgcamp is Hermione’s last and marks the beginning of the end of…she’s not sure what. She does know this season could make her a legend. But during a camp party, someone slips something in her drink. And it all goes black.

After Hermoine is drugged and raped at cheer camp, her friends, family and community rally around to support her. Although there is some gossip, her boyfriend seems to blame her for the attack. She can’t remember who attacked her, but hopes with the help of her therapist, she can bring her rapist to justice.

This story is powerful and emotional and an important addition to the YA genre because of its honest dealing with issues of sexual assault. A MUST READ!!
