Carter didn't rape me. People at school think he did. Suddenly, new friends are rushing to my side, telling me that Carter hurt them, too. They say he's getting what he deserves. Maybe I don't want to fix this. Sam is in love with her best friend Nick, but she can't seem to tell him. So she decides to flirt with golden-boy Carter Wellesley, hoping Nick will see it and finally realize his true feelings for her. On Monday, everyone at school is saying that Carter raped Sam. He didn't, but Sam can't find the words to tell the truth. Worst of all, she's afraid shell lose Nick if he finds out what really happened. As graduation approaches, Sam discovers that living the lie isn't as easy as her new friends make it sound - and telling the truth might be even worse.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from In Too Deep is Full of Impact! *Copy provided by publisher before onsale date for review* In Too Deep by Amanda Grace, pen name for author Mandy Hubbard, was an absolute must read when I stumbled upon it's synopsis while browsing Goodreads. In Too Deep tells the dramatic and emotional story of Sam, a girl, who without putting much thought into the situation, unleashes an incomprehensible chain of events that lead the students at her school into believing that she was raped by Carter Davis, a guy she made a pass at but got rejected. Firstly, before reading In Too Deep, I'd only read one novel by Mandy Hubbard, that being Ripple, a novel that gently fell into the fantasy genre and not the realistic. I wasn't quite sure what to expect from her in terms of contemporary YA, so I was curious to see how she'd pull things off. With In Too Deep, I was very impressed! It's not everyday that you read a realistic fiction title that is, in it's full name, REALISTIC! The events that take place in this novel don't develop exactly as you'd expect, bringing forth the realism of unpredictable decision making to an all time high. With that said, it's easy to imagine that I'd instantly become infuriated with a character like Sam. Her decision making was poor with very little thought behind it. Firstly, as a reader I ask you this, if you were caught in the same situation as Sam, with several students thinking you were raped when in fact you weren't, wouldn't you slam down the rumors and make it clear that it never happened? Wouldn't it be in your best interest to do so, and the best interest in the person being falsely accused? My answer: Yes, I would slam down those rumors. It's the very fact that she continued the false pretence that made me frustrated and agitated. However, as I pointed out before, it's that very aspect of the story and Sam's character that made this story vivid. As much as we'd hate to believe it, there are people out there who would go along with claims like that. Overall, I found that the novel had an overwhelming feel of Degrassi (the television show, if you've ever watched it). The drama, the characters, the entire series of events and life lessons learned through this novel all pulled me in. Readers, if you enjoy contemporary novels that focus on the real, you'll want to pick up yourself a copy of In Too Deep by Amanda Grace
