Ireland, thank you so much. MENDING FENCES was definitely more serious than most of my stories, but I really wanted to deal with the topic of date rape in a way that might touch both teenagers and their moms, whether those teens are girls or boys. Girls need to understand that they have the right to say no. Boys must learn that no means NO. Sadly, it's not just teens who can fall victims to date rape. Even some older women who don't have a strong sense of self-worth can find themselves in situations with men who won't take their feelings into account. They need to learn that saying no should be respected by the men in their lives. If it isn't, then they are victims of a crime and help and support is available.
