Summary "Emma O'Donovan is eighteen, beautiful, and fearless. It's the beginning of the summer in a quiet Irish town and tonight she and her friends have dressed to impress. Everyone is at the big party, but all eyes are on Emma. The next morning Emma's parents discover her in a heap on the doorstep of their home, unconscious. She is disheveled, bleeding, and disoriented, looking as if she had been dumped there in a hurry. She remembers nothing from the party. That day several devastating photos from the party are posted online and go viral, eventually launching a criminal investigation and sending the community into tumult. The media descends, neighbors choose sides, and people from all over the world want to talk about her story. Emma's life has been changed forever by an unthinkable and all-too-common act of sexual violence, and all she wants to do is disappear."-- Provided by publisher.
