Maybe I Will
Laurie Gray
Luminis Books presents this heart-breaking tale of innocence, abuse, and keeping secrets that are far too heavy to carry alone.  It's not about sex. It's about how one secret act of violence changes everything--how best friends can desert you when you need them most, how nobody understands. It's about the drinking and stealing and lying and wondering who you can trust. It's about parents and teachers, police officers and counselors--all the people who are supposed to help you, but who may not even believe you. It's about how suddenly all of your hopes and dreams can vanish, and you can find yourself all alone, with nothing and no one. Your only choice is to end it all or to start over... and all you can think is Maybe I Will. Author Laurie Gray presents a compelling picture of the realities of sexual assault in Maybe I Will, drawing on her years of experience as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney, dealing with crimes against children. The twist in the story is that we never know for sure if the victim is a boy or a girl, and we realize that it doesn't matter, because it's not about sex.  YOUNG ADULT / SOCIAL ISSUES / CHILD ABUSE / SEXUAL ABUSE / GENDER IDENTITY / BOOKS THAT MAKE YOU THINK
