Exit, Pursued by a Bear - E. K. Johnston

Product Description(Amazon.com)
Hermione Winters is captain of her cheer leading team, and in tiny Palermo Heights, this doesn’t mean what you think it means. At PHHS, the cheerleaders don't cheer for the sports teams; they are the sports team—the pride and joy of a small town. The team's summer training camp is Hermione's last and marks the beginning of the end of…she’s not sure what. She does know this season could make her a legend. But during a camp party, someone slips something in her drink. And it all goes black.

In every class, there's a star cheerleader and a pariah pregnant girl. They're never supposed to be the same person. Hermione struggles to regain the control she's always had and faces a wrenching decision about how to move on. The rape wasn't the beginning of Hermione Winter's story and she's not going to let it be the end. She won’t be anyone’s cautionary tale.

MY THOUGHTS:  This is a new author for me.  I really liked reading this book, the plot, characters, and subject were all written beautiful.  The story didn't struggle at all, it kept me glued to the book, I wanted to find out what happened to this girl.  Hermione is the captain of her cheer leading squad.  One night at a party at a cheer leading camp, someone spikes her drink, rapes her and leaves her in the lake.  Hermione doesn't remember any of it because of the drug they put in her drink.  But she gets triggers that help her to remember.  She also has all her friends and family to help her.   Really moving book.  I give this book 5.....

This book is for 2 of my reading challenges.....
