Good things Main character Grace was a strong inspiring character Ians dad and Grace s mom acted the way a parent should act in this situation Bad things Ian Ian Ian Every character that wasn t Grace her mom or Ians dad IanThe problem I have with this book is every character except from Grace It is very frustrating to read books about rape where there are so many characters that are uneducated about what rape is and think its the girls fault When reading this I wanted to smack every idiotic character and just stop reading Eventually Ian the love interest grew some brains but still wasn t capable of using his brain to full capacityOver all it is a good read it shows the problems of the rape culture but for me it was frustrating I wanted to step into the world and just scream at every character that participated in the bullying the slut shaming and harassment Two stars because Grace was an inspiring character apart from the not thinking about the bura situation but the rest of the characters except from Ians dad and Grace s mom were too frustrating to read aboutEdit I know that it is logical to add characters who don t understand the problems of rape but the way those were written were completely frustrating One second Ian is an absolute idiot about rape and basically thinks Grace is a slut the next he is someone with an actual brain and capable of making coherent thoughts This switch from understanding to not understanding happened too often Also I would love to read books with an actual thought out and well written conflict

I think the fact this iswill be played up as a romance rather than a book about rape culture and violence against women possibly says something about how uncomfortable we are to talk about rape culture and confront it head on This definitely has a romance in it but the big take away is how when a girl is raped she can become the enemy rather than the rapist and actual criminalGrace was raped by the golden boy lacrosse player at her high school but no one believes her Part of why is because Zac s so respected and part is because Zac posted a video of the incident on Facebook where he looks like he s been granted consent Ian is Zac s best friend who just happens to have a thing for Grace Or he did before Zac got with her That meant she s now off limitsNow that they re both stuck cleaning lockers Grace as punishment for lashing out against everyone who continues to berate her and Ian as a way of getting back onto the lacrosse team as soon as he recovers from his concussion and subseuent behavioral issues they re confronting one another and themselves Grace is tense and guarded Ian is too but his comes from still having feelings for Grace and for knowing what the relationship between Grace and Zac is and how that impacts his own relationship with ZacThis isn t an easy read but it s an important one It s a close examination of how a whole town will turn against a girl who dares to speak up about her rights and her body being violated This is the other side of the those poor boys have had their futures ruined headlines we read when they ve been accused or convicted of sexual assault or rape While it gets a lot of things right this didn t cut as deep as it could have and the outs to the story really stood out to me view spoiler Grace s mother really pushes for her to leave town and go abroad and while Grace chooses with her mother s support to stay here and get through this it still always felt like a way out It didn t make her situation any easier nor any better but it made me think about how privilege can get wrapped up into these sorts of situations That Grace stayed and resisted leaving is huge and important but I wish that that element of possibility that she could go had never entered the picture at all It seemed unnecessary hide spoiler

Download Some Boys ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Read ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Í Patty Blount Patty Blount Í 5 Download Some boys go too far Some boys will break your heart But one boy can make you wholeWhen Grace meets Ian she's afraid Afraid he'll reject her like the rest of the school like her own. This book carries an important messageIf you have to read any uote from this book it s the following The cops wanted to know if I was Zac s girlfriend if I was drinking doing drugs if I ever worked as a stripper if I ever kissed Zac before that night What the hell does any of that have to do with what happened Do the laws against sexual assault not apply to strippers To girlfriends I don t get that He thinks because I went to the woods drank alcohol and dressed the way I dress I should have expected this to happen That I actually wanted this to happen What the hell just what the hell was wrong with how I lookedwhy does he care if I wear eye black like the football team It s my face It s my body I can dress it up or down however I want Why is that such a hard concept for guys to accept All that crap Jax said about dressing to be noticed being noticed is fine But being noticed isn t the same as being ridiculed insulted ostracised shamed Being noticed isn t an open invitation to guys to do whatever they want to me This book made me cry I know rape is a complex issue to discuss I also know that although this book concentrates on a female victim that there are also male victims of rape out there But what really got me was the shaming And not the shaming from the guys I understood the whole buddy system with the rapist s friends sticking up for him and shunning the girl who dared to speak up But the shaming by the girls was the most painful to read about We girls as a species can be cruelGossip is like a type of currency Some girls can be two faced than Professor uirrell from Harry Potter But we should never ever ostracise another person purely based on idle gossip And especially when they may have suffered major trauma You never know what trials a person faces in their daily lives hidden behind the smiling mask they wear day to day Don t judge by appearances Stick up for one anotherThe right way isn t always the easy wayThis was another valuable lesson from this book Peer pressure VS human decency Speaking up VS importance of friendships But although all these things came into conflict with one another it was not being able to face one s self that finally brought Ian to the good side Not that Ian had actually done the deed But he kept choosing to remain ignorant despite knowing deep down that what was happening was wrongTrue he ends up growing a spine for Grace And to fix all the wrongs But he mainly does it because he cannot stand the person he sees himself becoming He knows he can t live with himself if he stands back and allows things to continue as they areSo here s a challenge for us allLet s take a good look at ourselves Maybe glance in the mirror or sit alone in uiet contemplationAnd let s think do I like the person I am Do I like the way things areMore importantly it s not a matter of whether you like this or that but do you know the person you are Do you truly know the way things are or are you blinded by false loyalties and excusesLet s open our eyes and our mouthsLet s see what s really there past the lies rumours and labels Let s speak the truth Let s make this world a safer better place What is right sometimes isn t easy But it s worth it
