                   ✯4 Mistrusted Stars!!!✯✯

This is not my first read by Margaret and it won't be my last. All her books have left a mark with me. Including this one. She has a way of bringing real life issues into her stories and nailing it.

Dakota is the popular girl who's dating the popular basketball player and going to her junior prom. She struggling with if she should sleep with her boyfriend for the first time or not. She thought she was ready. But, now that the days here she's really not sure. Dakota knows he loves her enough to wait for her. 

While at prom with her friends enjoying her time, Dakota takes a sip of her soda. It's then her world turns upside down. Next thing Dakota knows she's waking up next to the bleachers. She's bruised, bloody, her dress a mess, she's hurting all over and the worst part is she has no idea what happened and how she got there.

Dakota realizes rather quickly she's been raped. She instantly feels dirty. No matter how much she tries to get clean it doesn't work. She refuses to tell anyone what happened. Dakota tries to pretend everything is OK. If she had it her way she would've never told anyone. She was fine until her sister Sam found out something happened and she broke down to her.No matter what her sister said Dakota did not want her parents to find out.

Not only did this book bring you rape it was also about bullying and the minds of teenagers. But, in reality I'd think most women who've had these things happen to them, they'd have the same things running thru their heads. Dakota learned who her friends really were. She had to learn to trust herself and others.  I think every teenage girl needs to read this.

Excerpt

Dragging myself out of the gymnasium and down the hall, I try and get to the side double-doors. But with no one here to help me, it's difficult. I need to sit for a moment out on the steps leading to the back field and gather myself.

My legs become heavier as I get to the doors. The cyclone happening inside my head is growing thicker while my vision is so unclear I can barely make out any objects.

Stumbling down the first step, I barely recognize where I am.

“What’s happening?” I think I say.

There’s a cacophony of dense sounds; a combination of white noise, mumbling, and a beat which doesn’t make sense.

My eyes are now so heavy I can barely open them and my legs are completely weighted as I attempt to make my way down the stairs. I think I’m going to pass out.




Author Bio

There's something about the written word that is pure magic.

Possibly it's the fact there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering they're capable to change our lives.

How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?

I like to think of myself as 'unique'. My stories aren't for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be 'normal'.

Normal is subjective.

I prefer to be known as a person who's never been 'bound by custom' but is 'unique by choice'.


I hope you do read and enjoy my stories.
