What Happened That Night Reviews
This book was trying to hit all the notes to be a topical book, dealing with sexual assault, self-harm, suicide, LGBTQ identity and autism but it ended up being messy and offensive and pretty poorly written.
First, I want to thank Sandra Block, Sourcebooks Landmark and NetGalley for providing me with this book.
What Happened That Night by Sandra Block was a book that brought out a lot of emotions out in me due to the subject material at hand. This book has subject matter that could be a trigger for anyone that has been in a date rape or gang rape situation. That being said this book may not be for everyone. Read at your own risk.

What Happened That Night by Sandra Block
Mixed feelings on this book…I can see it appealing to New Adult readers wanting a young woman who has been raped to achieve revenge against the group of men that attacked her BUT I am not sure how I feel about what she chose to do to the men to extract that revenge. The way Dahlia and James went about achieving her revenge seemed hard to believe and their relationship was difficult for me to understand. It was an unsettling book and I am still sitting on t ...more

Powerful and Thought-Provoking!
This is one of those novels where the book summary reads like a suspenseful thriller when it is in fact not. Crime, yes, since it deals with rape, but apart from that I would class it as a contemporary drama/romance, that is heavily character driven. I predicted where it was going early on, and I think most readers will as well. Even the revenge, which I thought was going to be a major plotline, wasn’t. That aside, I thought it was a very good book, and I am please ...more
A woman was drugged and gets raped on campus and doesn't remember a thing, except birds chirping, men in line, laughing, and, of course, the pain. Now, she suffers from PTSD, imagine that.
The last part of this book was killing me. I feared for Dahlia. She was crazy with her revenge. I wanted to holler "you go girl!" so many times but I just couldn't. My fear was so strong for her. That kept me going for like over half of this book.
I'm not going to spoil it for you and tell you what happened ...more
