Exit, Pursued By a Bear

Finished Exit, Pursued By a Bear by E.K. Johnston. 

Hermione is the cheerleading co-captain for her school and it is a major part of her life–even after she is drugged and raped at cheerleading camp. As horrible as that it is–and it gets worse; she learns she’s pregnant and gets an abortion–she’s also lucky. Everyone from her squad to her parents to the police is beyond supportive of her. 

This book is wrenching and also incredibly hopeful. It’s easier for Hermione, maybe, because she can’t remember what happened. Except it’s also harder because at first, it feels like it happened to someone else. But, of course, it has to be dealt with sooner or later. 

This is such an important book and everyone should read it. Highly recommended.
