The Fall of Innocence; Jenny Torres Sanchez

The Fall of InnocenceThe Fall of Innocence by Jenny Torres Sanchez
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Say it with me: please stop with the multiple POVs.

Beyond that, this was fairly predictable but teen readers will enjoy this book about a girl, horribly damaged by an attack when she was younger, and her attempts to be "normal" by having a boyfriend and going through regular high school. How that long-ago event still affects her mental state, and how she tries to deal with it, will sadden readers. As an adult, I wondered what happened to getting her into therapy, but that isn't ever discussed - and could be used as a starting point for a conversation about the need for mental health awareness.
