Review :- 
Firstly, i would like to thank the author for sending me the book 
i m impressed by author's way of writing & narrating the story 
The author has delivered the message very clearly 
The women can relate it with themselves , the ermotions 

Rapes happen in every society. It is a disease of sick mind-set. In our society particularly, we understand the gender relation largely as sexual relation between man and woman.

 “RAPESCARS” is a rape survivor’s perspective. Follow a reported case of rape closely. You will learn that in our country getting rape is a lesser ordeal than fighting for the justice.

 The book starts with Akriti, the protoganist,  a young college girl, is raped and undergoes all the atrocities a woman in India undergoes after becoming the victim of such a heinous crime. 
 Her complaint isn’t easily accepted at the police station. Thanks to her father’s influence, she gets to place a complaint and move forward with medical examination where she is subjected to the gory ‘two finger test’. If that wasn’t enough, her reputation is scarred in courtroom. Finally, when it is time for judgement, she requests a plea. What is it? And why is it made? Was she successful?

On a whole, its a good read
My Ratings: 4/5
