This book deals with a problem in society today and it presents it in a really well put way. The way the book presents this issue is really well written.
Grace is a girl who is raped and afraid of everything, but gives a bad girl attitude toward everyone because she is afraid to get hurt again. When Grace meets Ian she is finally opening up but there is one problem. Ian is bestfriends with Zac the guy who raped Grace and still tortures her to this day. Unlike everyone in school Ian doesn't reject Grace, he accepts her and eventually grows close to her. Eventually decisions need to be made about the future. Read Some Boys to get a glimpse into this real world issue and what Ian does to protect Grace. Audience: Who would like this book? Why do you or don’t you feel that others should read this novel? I believe this book is best for the grades 9-12 and up. This book deals with a more real topic that may be to much for younger people. People should read this because you earn about a girl who is so afraid that she presents herself as bad to protect herself.
