The statistics tell a horrific story: one in six women and one in 33 men will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime. Over 93 percent of juvenile sexual assault and rape victims know their assaulters. Written by a therapist, Date Rape helps readers understand this sensitive issue and gives those who have experienced it advice and coping strategies. Topics include the effects of rape, from depression to post-traumatic stress disorder, and suicide, as well as the benefits of disclosure and trust.

Reviews
Date Rape

“Date rape is a serious topic, but this title in the Straight Talk About . . . series extends the discussion and also spends a good deal of its pages covering dating violence, both verbal and physical, which girls don’t always understand to be problematic. The book’s beginning is a bit jarring. A page describes an incident between Pashima (pictured, hair covered) and freckle-faced Max, who start off on a race, which suddenly ends when Max trips Pashima and she breaks her wrist. Then he pushes himself on her: “And he was so strong. Too strong.” This clash of cultures seems odd and limiting, but the information that follows is strong and far-reaching. The book explains various kinds of violence and tries to define what is acceptable in a relationship (arguments, for instance) and what is not, including using force in sex (and not limiting that to intercourse). The book is also up to date, with a discussion of how modern communication technology such as cell phones and social networking sites can be breeding grounds for violence. The colorful photos are stock, but the appealing “Dating Rights” manifesto further spells out appropriate behavior in a relationship. Plenty of resource material, of course.” —Booklist, 10/10
