Description

The gut-wrenching, powerful narrative that offers a kaleidoscopic view of a college freshman's sexual assault. "Outstanding, powerful, and important.This is, hands down, one of the best sexual assault reads in YA, and it's a book that high schoolers of all genders should read."-Kelly Jensen, Book Riot Everyone has heard a different version of what happened that night at MacCallum College. Haley was already in bed when her roommate, Jenny, arrived home shell-shocked from the wild Conundrum House party. Richard heard his housemate Jordan brag about the cute freshman he hooked up with. When Jenny formally accuses Jordan of rape, Haley and Richard find themselves pushed onto opposite sides of the school's investigation. But conflicting interests fueling conflicting versions of the story may make bringing the truth to light nearly impossible--especially when reputations, relationships, and whole futures are riding on the verdict. Maria Padian offers a kaleidoscopic view of a sexual assault on a college campus. Wrecked will leave readers thinking about how memory and identity, what's at stake, and who sits in judgment shape what we all decide to believe about the truth.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Ali Ahn's character voices for this YA novel are problematic. Freshman year at college can be a first opportunity to explore boundaries away from home. For some teens, like Jenny in WRECKED, the result is traumatic. Jenny is sexually assaulted at an alcohol-fueled party. Her roommate, Haley, is entering a relationship with Richard, a friend of the accused rapist; both girls see a different truth, and it's possible neither reflects what really happened. Ahn's voices for female characters are much stronger than her male voices; while Haley is convincing, Jenny comes across as too timid and feminist Callie sounds too sophisticated and brittle for a college senior. Among the male characters, Richard has a trademark gravelly rasp, and Jordan is given an extreme and distracting Southern drawl on the strength of a single reference in the text.
