Description-

  • 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.

    ★ "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 review
    ★ "Fierce and gorgeously drawn, this is a rape story that doesn't focus on victimhood."Booklist, starred review

    "A beautifully written portrait of a young woman facing the unthinkable, this is a must-buy for high school collections."SLJ, starred review

    "Exit, Pursued by a Bear is an important new novel comparable with Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson."—VOYA.
    "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

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Narrator Jorjeana Marie's youthful voice is an excellent fit for this YA retelling of Shakespeare's WINTER'S TALE. Along with her best friend, Polly, Hermione Winters is co-captain of her school's legendary cheerleading squad. Senior year looks to be perfect. But at cheer camp, Hermione is drugged, raped, and left half-submerged in the lake. The story that follows is an honest portrayal of a young woman's recovery from trauma, including an abortion, and the community that rallies around her. Marie's straightforward narration is well matched to the novel's tone. Hermione is a character who is struggling emotionally, and there are scenes in which Marie's voice breaks. But Hermione is also level headed, and Marie avoids histrionics while managing to convey her grief, anger, and ultimate triumph. E.C. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine
