Modern Monsters
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Vic Howard never wanted to go to the party. He’s the Invisible Guy at school, a special kind of hell for quiet, nice guys. But because his best friend is as popular as Vic is ignored, he went…

And wished he hadn’t.

Because something happened to a girl that night. Something terrible, unimaginable, and Callie Wheeler’s life will never be the same. Plus, now Callie has told the police that Vic is responsible. Suddenly, Invisible Vic is painfully visible, on trial both literally, with the police, and figuratively, with the angry kids at school. As the whispers and violence escalate, he becomes determined to clear his name, even if it means an uneasy alliance with Callie's best friend, the beautiful but aloof Autumn Dixon.

But as Autumn and Vic slowly peel back the layers of what happened at the party, they realize that while the truth can set Vic free, it can also shatter everything he thought he knew about his life…

“I’m detective Sherrigan and this is Detective Carter, Waverly Police Department,” the man says. “We came to ask you about a party you were seen at Friday night.”

This was an interesting mystery story about a boy accused of rape.

Vic was quite a shy boy, and he seemed to always have other people’s best interests at heart. It seemed quiet unfathomable that he could have possibly raped a girl, and I felt really sorry for him when he was accused.

“Do you know a Callie Wheeler?”

The storyline in this was about finding out who raped Callie, and we were kept guessing right up until the end. I did find the pace a bit slow, and I did get a bit frustrated that the answers weren’t coming quicker, but I wasn’t able to guess who the culprit was.

“No, Victor, she’s not okay.” Carter dips her chin and peers over the top of her sunglasses. “She was raped.”

There was a little bit of romance in this, and I thought that Vic was really sweet to the girl that he liked.

“It’s a lingering kiss.”

The end to this was okay, and I was glad that we found out who the rapist was.

6.25 out of 10
