September 27, Post 1

The book i am currently reading is "Lucky" by Alice Sebolt. Section 1 is page 1-34. The first 10 pages were when the rape was taking place. She had been walking home late at night where a stranger came up behind her and pulled her by her hair to a near by tunnel. After the rape, he let her go by asking her what her name was, and she said "Alice". When the stranger left she ran to her campus, which was very near, and tried to find her friends. Once she found her roommate, she called the police and they came and got her. She was taken to the hopsital so the doctors could do a rape kit. The police then brought her back to the campus where she was later picked up by her mother a few hours later.

This section of the book was very difficult to read because it didn't seem like something that could actually happen. It was very detailed during the rape and at the hospital which made it harder to read because it was horrible what happend to her. During the check up at the hospital, they found many cuts and brusses on her face and legs and i realized that it was much worse than i thought.
