Take It Back By : Kia Abdullah
Jodie Wolfe is a sixteen-year-old white girl with facial deformities, who has had a hard life. She lives in a council flat with her alcoholic mother who blames her for ruining her life with her looks. She is also constantly bullied and the family has next to no money.
Jodie is surprised when attending a house party that the most popular and sexiest boy in her school, Amir Rabbani, wants to make out with her. He leads her away from the party and to a nearby disused building.
When they arrive three of his friends turn up. What happens next is one girl’s word against four young lads words. Jodie accuses three of the boy’s of rape but the boys stories all collaborate and they swear that they never touched Jodie.
With rape councillor Zara Kaleel, once a promising young lawyer on her side Jodie prepares to go to court but with doubt creeping in both directions this is going to a huge case, one that has already been leaked to the media and they are having a field day with it, especially when they realise that three Asian lads from immigrant families might just have raped a white girl.
All I can say is OMG this book is so amazing. This is how you capture your audience and keep them entertained throughout. The story is explosive and hard to swallow at times, especially when the media get wind of the case and blow everything up for clickbait or to sell more papers.
