I'm was so excited to read this when I was that the sequel 'No Shame' was coming out and after reading this one, the duology feels like a novel of two parts. The first tells the story of Stacey Woods' rape - how different circumstances built to something unthinkable. It was definitely powerful an...

One has to appreciate what Anne Cassidy was trying to do in writing this book, in which a seventeen-year-old girl battles with herself as she tries to decide if she can bring herself to report her rape.

No virgin is heartbreaking but so wonderfully written. I couldn't stop turning the pages. This is a raw powerful novel that I very highly recommend. Stacey Woods was raped.

This is a fairly short read with a lot jammed into it.
I reminded myself this was a YA book and to think like a young person. I found that helped me enormously to relate to Stacey and her mindset.
Stacey has a sister who got pregnant at a very young age, life isn’t always easy at home with her sist...

If you've picked up this book and read the blurb you know it's coming and if you haven't read the blurb the first sentence of the book tells you it's coming. Still, if this is a trigger for you please be safe while...

Think it's a case of not being the book for me. Particularly found the ending quite unsatisfying

Thanks to NetGalley and Hot Key Books for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Stacey Woods is not the popular girl. She has big dreams but doesn't even have enough confidence to share them with anyone but her best friend Patrice. Her younger sister just had a baby and her m...

Κάθε φορά που ετοιμάζομαι να καταγράψω την άποψή μου για ένα μυθιστόρημα, σκέφτομαι τι εισαγωγή θα μπορούσα να κάνω, ποια θα μπορούσε να είναι η πιο ταιριαστή στο εκάστοτε θέμα ή υπόθεση, μα και ποια θα έπρεπε να είναι η προσέγγισή μου απέναντι σε αυτό. Σε βιβλία όπως το "Δε θέλω" της Anne Cassi...

Rape isn't a place or situation for anyone to be. Therefore I feel sorry for Stacey.
This is a short book telling The story of Stacey and how she met her rapist, how she revealed to her friends, and how she's going to open up.
It was a very brave ending and I wish to know wh...
