Description

Everyone on campus has a different version of what happened that night. Haley saw Jenny return from the party, shell-shocked. Richard heard Jordan brag about the cute freshman he hooked up with. When Jenny accuses Jordan of rape, Haley and Richard are pushed to opposite sides of the school's investigation. Now conflicting versions of the story may make bringing the truth to light nearly impossible--especially when reputations, relationships, and whole futures are riding on the verdict. Wrecked offers a kaleidoscopic account of a sexual assault on a college campus. It will leave you thinking about how memory, identity, and who sits in judgment shape what we all decide to believe about the truth.show more

Review quote

Fall 16 Kids Indie Next Pick Outstanding, powerful, and important . . . This is, hands down, one of the best sexual assault reads in YA, and it s a book that high schoolers of all genders should read. Kelly Jensen, Book Riot Padian s latest boasts a swift, excellently crafted plot, exceedingly readable prose, and painfully relatable characters. It is especially surprising to find an affectionate involvement as believable as Haley and Richard s in the middle of a story centering on a rape investigation. Particularly relevant for high school seniors and college freshmen Booklist, starred review In the face of recent college rape trials, readers will be rapt and emotionally spent by the end. An important, devastating new perspective on an all-too-timely subject. Kirkus Reviews This is an important and, unfortunately, timely novel . . . This isn t just a book that all young men and women should read; it s gripping and human enough that many will want to. Shelve and display alongside Laurie Halse Anderson s Speak and Courtney Summers s All the Rage. School Library Journal Revelatory, deeply real, and urgently important. Nova Ren Suma, author of The Walls Around Us"show more

Back cover copy

"Revelatory, deeply real, and urgently important." --Nova Ren Suma, author of The Walls Around Us Nothing is what it looks like. Or sounds like. Jenny's so brave. This has been really hard for her. But she's doing the right thing. For the record, I don't need to roofie some girl to get a little action. I'm not on any side. I don't want any part of it. Jenny was OK. Now she's . . . wrecked.show more
