Transcript of book project quarter 3

Liz a sixteen-year old girl who has a great life: a bond with her older brother, supportive parents, a devoted boyfriend, a real talent for photography, and a "forever-best friend" in Kate. That all changes when Liz and Kate get into a fight at one of the regular slumber parties. The cold shoulder Kate gives to her friend go beyond the expected, and Liz confronts her formal pal. Finally, Kate comes out with it: she claims that Liz's older brother Mike raped her that night when Liz left the room.
