Exit, Pursued by a Bear

(1)
From #1 New York Times bestselling author E.K. Johnston comes a brave and unforgettable story that will inspire readers to rethink how we treat survivors.

Hermione Winters is captain of her cheerleading team, and in tiny Palermo Heights, this doesn't mean what you think it means. At PHHS, the cheerleaders don't cheer for the sports teams; they are the sports team-the pride and joy of a small town. The team's summer training camp is Hermione's last and marks the beginning of the end of…she's not sure what. She does know this season could make her a legend. But during a camp party, someone slips something in her drink. And it all goes black.

In every class, there's a star cheerleader and a pariah pregnant girl. They're never supposed to be the same person. Hermione struggles to regain the control she's always had and faces a wrenching decision about how to move on. The rape wasn't the beginning of Hermione Winter's story and she's not going to let it be the end. She won't be anyone's cautionary tale.

"This story of a cheerleader rising up after a traumatic event will give you Veronica Mars-level feels that will stay with you long after you finish."-Seventeen Magazine

"Exit, Pursued by a Bear" is a YA novel with a rather serious topic, but manages to not only be dark and depressing, but also positive and funny. Star cheerleader Hermione Winters is just about to start her last year of secondary school, thus also her last year of cheering. To prepare for the new season, her squad spends two weeks at Camp Manitouwabing, but what starts off as a fun and successful trip ends with Hermione waking up in the hospital - with no memory of the night before. Back at Palermo High, the girl has to deal with the consequences of the abuse and the stares and whispers all around her. But Hermione refuses to be victimized... I very much enjoyed reading "Exit, Pursued by a Bear". The plot of the book is well developed, and the writing style very pleasant. Even though the book includes topics like rape, teenage pregnancy and drunk driving, it isn't as depressing as I thought it would be. That's mainly due to Hermione's attitude and support system. Reading this book, I was impressed by the protagonist's strength and determination. The character I loved most, though, is her best friend Polly. She is just amazing - supportive, blunt and wonderfully sarcastic. I think everybody should have a Polly in their life. The only thing I can "critizise" is the authenticity of how it all works out. Most rape victims just aren't as lucky with their surroundings as the book's protagonist and have a more difficult time coping.
