BOOK REVIEW: Tonight We Rule The World by Zack Smedley
In the beginning, Owen’s story was blank . . . then he was befriended by
Lily, the aspiring author who helped him find his voice. Together, the two
have spent years navigating first love and amassing an inseparable friend
group. But all of it is upended one day when his school’s administration
learns Owen’s secret: that he was sexually assaulted by a classmate.
In the ensuing investigation, everyone scrambles to hold their worlds together.
Owen, still wrestling with his self-destructive thoughts and choices.
His father, a mission-driven military vet ready to start a war to find his son’s attacker.
The school bureaucrats, who seem most concerned with kowtowing to the local media attention.
And Lily, who can’t learn that Owen is the mystery victim everyone is talking about . . . because once she does, it will set off a chain of events that will change their lives forever.
Heartbreaking and hopeful, this is a coming-of-age story that explores how we rebuild after the world comes crumbling down.
