Exit, Pursued by a Bear

index.aspxThe title of this YA novel intrigued me enough that I decided to read it. Hermione, the protagonist is a cheerleader in her senior year of high school,co-captain of a co-ed team named the Fighting Golden Bears, and she is determined to win big at the finals in late August. Her summer begins with a rocky start, however, when at an early summer dance at cheer camp , Hermione is slipped a drink laced with a drug that knocks her out. She is later found down by the lake and has been sexually assaulted. The author portrays Hermione’s character realistically, as she deals with the aftermath of the rape. I found myself rooting  for Hermione to survive the horror of her attack, but you need to read this for yourself to see what happens…
