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
Rezension
Praise for Exit, Pursued by a Bear
"E.K. Johnston's latest gripping novel for young adults . . . is both a well-plotted whodunit and a tightly woven examination of how we as a society respond to - and often judge - rape victims."-The Chicago Tribune
"Unflinching and powerful, and completely necessary" -Bustle
"A powerful rape survival story to make you believe in a better world."-The Rumpus
"While assault survivors, both in fact and in fiction, often find their lives narrowed to this one designation, Johnston refuses to flatten her heroine. Instead, she insists that Hermione's joy in being thrown into the air during cheer routines, and the strength of her best friendship with co-captain Polly are just as vital to our understanding of her as the facts of her assault."-Margaret H. Willison, NPR book critic
"A raw, powerful story that'll stay with you long after it's over."-Buzzfeed
"E.K. Johnston has a seemingly limitless range. This is realistic fiction at its best."-The Globe & Mail
"Every girl who has ever been sexually assaulted or known someone who has, should read this book. So should every boy who has ever raped or known one who has. Every reader might try to be a friend like Polly. E.K. Johnston writes so well, showing a dark reality highlighted by compassion."-The News-Gazette
★ "Johnston's clever-but never precious-update of Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale is unflinching but not at all graphic in its treatment of sexual violence.... Middle and high school readers will pass this powerful, engaging story around and around."-Kirkus Reviews, starred.
★ "Fierce and gorgeously drawn, this is a rape story that doesn't focus on victimhood."-Booklist, starred.
★ "A beautifully written portrait of a young woman facing the unthinkable, this is a must-buy for high school collections."-SLJ, starred.
★ "While Hermione is a victim, Johnson never portrays her as victimized, instead focusing on how Hermione reasserts control over her life with help from family, friends, and therapy, using her own decisions to push back against something in which she had no such choice." -PW, starred.
★ "The reader is kept engaged, and - like Hermione - hopeful, even in the darkest moments. [...] Exit, Pursued by a Bear is a story of triumph, not just survival."-Quill & Quire, starred.
★ "Johnston creates a strong female main character that will not be afraid, and refuses to be a cautionary tale or a pariah." -SLC, starred
"Exit, Pursued by a Bear is an important new novel comparable with Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson."-VOYA
"...nothing short of epic." -The Horn Book Magazine
"Exit, Pursued by a Bear is both a tenderly written, heartfelt coming of age and an incisive, sensitive examination of trauma after an assault. Fresh, memorable, and thought-provoking."
-Courtney Summers, author of All the Rage
"A unflinching exploration of what it means to be a girl, what it means to be a friend, and what it means to be a survivor. A determined, transformative book that every teen girl should read."
-Tess Sharpe, author of Far From You
"Gripping and devastating." -Anne Ursu, author of The Real Boy
"Exit, Pursued by a Bear is a must-read. Bracing, intimate, tense, and delightful."-Martha Brockenbrough, author of The Game of Love and Death
"Exit, Pursued by a Bear is a story about a girl. A cautionary tale about someone who didn't want to be a cautionary tale. An important book for girls. For boys. For adults. For mothers and fathers and daughters and sons and girlfriends and boyfriends. An important book without being an 'Issue Book.' And I loved it." -New York Times bestselling author Jessica Day George
"I WAS NOT WARNED THAT I WOULD CRY THIS MUCH."-New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hartman
"Should a young reader ever need guidance following an assault, she could do much worse than to emulate Hermione Winters."-Bookpage, Top Pick
"Crisp, engaging writ

The Curse of Palermo High

"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.
