At once honest and touching, Claire Needell's debut novel is a moving look at date rape and its aftermath, at the love and conflicts among sisters and friends, and how these relationships can hold us together--and tear us apart.

The gap between the Russell sisters--Jan, Erika, and Melanie--widens as each day passes. Then, at a party full of blurred lines and blurred memories, everything changes. Starting that night, where there should be words, there is only angry, scared silence.

And in the aftermath, Jan, Erika, and Melanie will have to work hard to reconnect and help one another heal.

The Word for Yes will inspire necessary conversation about a topical and important issue facing our society. The book includes a thoughtful author's note that provides resources for readers.

Review quote

"Their story, much like real life, isn't clear-cut or easy to read, but it's very, very important. An engrossing story proving the hard truth that it isn't always strangers who hurt us the worst of all."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
