Eden was always good at being good. Band geek. Book nerd. Starting high school didn't change that.
But the night her brother’s best friend rapes her, Eden’s whole world capsizes. What was once simple is now complex. What Eden once loved – who she loved – she now hates. What she believed was the truth, now lies. Nothing makes sense any more, and she’s never felt so alone in her life. She knows she’s supposed to tell someone what happened. But she can’t.
So she buries it instead. And she buries the way she used to be.
Told in four parts – freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior year – this unforgettable debut reveals the deep cuts of trauma and the poignant journey of self-discovery.
