What Happens Next by Colleen Clayton

Cassidy has a pretty good life. She has two awesome best friends and is a great student and cheerleader. The only thing she doesn't have is a guy. When she is is on a school ski trip and meets a guy named Dax, who invites her to a party, she is flattered. Cassidy goes off to meet him that night, and then remembers nothing. He took everything from her, including a lock of her curly red hair. She begins to alienate herself and discover how she can keep living in the new life she has now. 

I really liked Cassidy as a character. She was easy to relate to and was by no means perfect. I also LOVED Corey. He was awesome. 

The plot was a little slow at times, but I think that the author did a really good job of reflecting Cassidy's confusion about her rape. She is so so lost, and as a reader you feel lost with her. One thing I really liked about this book was how it almost didn't focus on the rape at all. It was pretty much of what Cassidy is feeling and how she is learning to cope. Of course she's angry with Dax, but she doesn't spend pages and pages venting about how much she hates him or anything.

It's very thought provoking and worth reading, so I would recommend it. 4 out of 5 stars.
