Trigger warning: Some Boys deals with rape and victim-blaming and contains strong language. 

Some Boys go too far. Some Boys don’t see you. Some Boys will break your heart. But One Boy can make you whole.   When Grace meets Ian she’s afraid. Afraid he’ll reject her like the rest of the school, like her own family. Call her a slut and a liar. But…he doesn’t. He’s funny and kind with secrets of his own. But how do you trust the best friend of the boy who raped you? How do you believe in love?

 

 

 

Some Boys


Readers, I am SO PROUD and happy and all-around impressed with the following video, an entry in a book trailer contest submitted to the South Carolina Association of Librarians 2017 conference by the #Bluejacketsread book club at Aynor High School. This entry won first place in this year’s contest. Congratulations to all. Visit the school library’s website to see past entries from this talented bunch of students.
