Inexcusable by Chris Lynch
Inexcusable is a short YA book that packs a big punch.
Following his high school graduation, Keir is accused of rape. He is full of shock, denial, and rage at the accusation. He knows he is a good guy, and good guys don't do things like rape.
The book is Keir's look back on the events of his senior year leading up to the aforementioned night. Keir recounts the events from his viewpoint, giving the reader a chance to glean insight into Keir's life that we know he himself is not privy to.
It's not to often that I enjoy a YA book about a male character. This is one of them.
