Erin grew up in a loving home – just her and her mom after the death of her father. They had little money, but they were happy. She had friends, family and a plan to go to college to become a lawyer.
Todd grew up with a bully for a father, a scared mouse for a mother, and a brother who left home as quickly as possible. The two things they had that Erin didn’t was money and power.
They could not be more opposite.
Erin quickly realized she was out of her league when she accepted the date from Todd and showed up at the senior prom in a borrowed dress. She was bullied and sexually harassed at the prom in front of the entire senior class.
Once at college, Todd escalated from bullying to rape and Erin began to hear about it on campus. She wasn’t certain at first who they were talking about and then it became obvious. Todd was on the University of Tulsa campus too and he was the main topic of conversation some nights in the girls’ bathroom at the library.
After the incident at the prom, Erin grew up quickly in her first year of college with a new job in her aunt’s law firm, leaving home, and learning about the law. She still maintained her friends, but she had changed.
According to Webster’s dictionary a bully is someone who seeks to harm, intimidate, or coerce someone perceived as vulnerable. To persecute.
Stuck on the same campus as Todd, Erin decides it is time to turn persecution into prosecution with the help of her aunt, an attorney in a prestigious Tulsa law firm, after her best friend, Bernadette, goes missing.
