Easy by Tammara Webber

Easy was our first foray into New Adult and it was met with mixed reviews. Only 3 of our members read the entire book. Two started it but were unable to finish it. One member of our group truly enjoyed it and has gone on to read other New Adult. Most of those who read it or began it, however, were upset by the fact that the heroine was almost raped, knew her attacker, and failed to report him to the police. Consequences followed. We did discuss that perhaps that was the point of the story—to demonstrate to a target audience what can happen when one does not take action. The author’s note at the end of the book explained that women should report attacks and provided information on how to report it. We decided not to give this book a numerical review ranking because, in all fairness, we are not the reader group that this new genre targets as most of us are past our college days and well into careers and families.

One thought on “Easy by Tammara Webber

  1. I really liked the book. I liked that it kind of attacked every angle of rape. The victim that doesn’t report, the one that does, the bullying, self-defense, the fear of intimacy, and the dude that understands NO & acts appropriately. I guess working with teens & having a teen girls made me appreciate the message.
