Finished Wrecked by Maria Padian. 
Richard and Haley are college students and potentially about to start dating. Except Haley’s roommate was raped at a party and Richard’s housemate was the one accused of the crime. And the guy even told Richard he hooked up with a freshman. Everyone has a different theory about what happened (and a viewpoint on who’s to blame). 

This is such an important novel and I love that this topic (consent, and what constitutes consent) is presented here. I also love how sensitively it’s handled. None of the details are gratuitous and Jenny (who was raped) is treated respectfully by every halfway decent character. 

This is the kind of book that sparks important conversations. Highly recommended.
