Andrea is a “good” girl and she is hitchiking with a boyfriend. They get picked up by a stranger. He drops off the boyfriend and then Andrea is raped. Andrea files a police report. Andrea takes a morning after pill, has trouble with her parents. Mom is worried that Andrea will be considered an “easy lay” if she talks about this. Mom also doesn’t want to hear the word “rape”. The police finally catch the guy and the last chapter is Andrea testifying. Finally, it’s all over. It’s a pretty good story and I would have snapped this up in a hot minute as a teen. Now, it just seems dated and everything is just too neat and tidy by the end.
