Leslie’s been skipping Ms. Graham’s class for quite sometime to go home with Jason to do more “studying” but one day, she finally got caught by Mr. Carrouthers. So from now on, as punishment, Leslie has to report to his office at the end of every day for the next two weeks. During these times Leslie started to really think. She and Jason “did it” all the time and she was really grateful that she wasn’t pregnant. Whenever she asked Jason if they could do something more traditional, like go see a movie, he always got paranoid and asked her if there was someone else or if she was a lesbian. Every time he would say something like that, she always gave in. Why would it matter though? She loves him and that’s all that matters right?
11. The climax of this novel is in chapter 41, when Leslie testifies against Jason in court. The police lay charges of rape (sexual assault), stalking (criminal harassment), forcible confinement and uttering death threats, and he comes out guilty on all counts
12. The conflicts in this book are solved by Leslie standing up for herself, and taking Jason to court.
13. The major things that helped were Leslie’s parents.
14. The message that I got from this book is to always watch out for yourself and to never let anyone take advantage over you. You should do what you think is right and always stick up for yourself. This message is conveyed through Leslie’s experiences.
15. The novel met my expectations because I think it was a very good read and very well-written.
16. The title ties in with the book by having a teenage girl looking unsure of what she should or shouldn’t do and what choices she should make.
