The book doesn't necessarily do anything "new" for this type of book. It's very short, and is pretty much just straightforward. The story is good, you do feel for Valerie. And as someone with personal experience with this type of thing, I did really understand the feelings and such. The feeling that it was Valerie's fault. One line I really thought was good, was the fact that rape is the only crime where a victim must prove their innocence. That really sat with me, because it is the truth. A sad truth, but a truth none the less.
