Here is the cover for this week's When I First Saw You. I've talked enough for one post so let's get right into it!

My made-up synopsis:

Consent is something Kylie heard of in health class. Consent is something that never really crossed Kylie's mind because she always thought that the first time she had sex, it would be with someone she loved and who loved her back. But now? Consent just became a hell of a big deal. 

After getting drunk at a party of someone she didn't know, Kylie slept with a Brian. She didn't really want to, but Brian assured her at school that she was into it. Except how could she make a rational decision if she was drunk to the point that she can barely remember what happened that night?

Now, Kylie is trying to deal with the aftermath of what she did. People are calling her names and she is starting to believe them. But if Kylie need to hear something, it's that she is not to blame for what happened.

There is only one word for consent. And that word is Yes.

The real deal:

After their parents’ divorce, Jan, Erika, and Melanie have to get used to the new world order: a father
who’s moved to another continent and a mother who throws herself into moving on. Jan, off at her first semester of college, has plenty to worry about, including an outspoken roommate who’s kind of “out there” and an increasingly depressed and troubled long-distance boyfriend. Her younger sisters, left at home in New York City, and dealing with all the pressures of life in high school, aren’t exactly close. Erika is serious and feels awkward and uncomfortable in crowds, though her beauty tends to attract attention. Melanie is socially savvy and just wants to go out—to concerts, to parties, wherever—with her friends. The gap between all three girls widens as each day passes.

Then, at a party full of blurred lines and blurred memories, everything changes. Starting that night, where there should be words, there is only angry, scared silence.

And in the aftermath, Jan, Erika, and Melanie will have to work hard to reconnect and help one another heal.


I think I deserve points for the party being the start of everything. Other than that, well my synopsis is way darker than the real one. While I talk about consent and possible rape, Claire's book is about family and friendship and all the hardships that come with it. 
I think my synopsis is pretty interesting because for me, consent is something really important. We hear about so many tragic stories where girls and boys are taking advantages of and I think we need more book dealing with that subject.
Nonetheless, The Word for Yes seems like a great book. I have a sister and I enjoy reading books where siblings relationship are important, so this one is for me!
