Synopsis: A guide to preventing and getting over rape discusses what a rapist thinks, how young people should react if a loved one is raped, what happens to a convicted rapist, what happens when someone is raped, and more. Reprint. AB.

From School Library Journal: Rape happens, and there's no doubt that young adults need to understand its dynamics, whether for prevention, healing, or simply to achieve an informed compassion for victims of this violent crime. Bode interviews teenagers and professionals and presents monologues from several perspectives: Nicole, 17, describes being date raped--twice; a police officer tells what goes on in his mind when he interviews victims; a psychologist talks about juvenile sex offenders. In a chapter on the court system, comments by a defense attorney, a prosecutor, and a judge illuminate the difficulty of achieving justice in rape cases. There are several notable gaps: no male victims speak out (although the author does address male victims in several passages), discussion of incest or child sexual abuse is negligible, and some of the most disturbing and ambiguous monologues--such as one by a boy who casually participated in several "gang bangs"--are presented without interpretation or comment. The adult experts who populate the second half of the book tend to lecture. While this book conveys some information very well, it is far from thorough. For those collections with room for only one book on rape, it should be Andrea Parrot's Coping with Date Rape and Acquaintance Rape (Rosen, 1988). --Carolyn Polese, Gateway Community School, Arcata, CA
