Emma O'Donovan是一位正值青春年華、美麗、無懼的18歲少女。故事從一個夏日的平靜小鎮開始,Emma與她的好友準備盛裝一番參加今晚的派對,她的美麗與自信也成為眾人的焦點。隔天早上,Emma的父母發現她衣冠不整、意識不清的癱軟在家門口,她想不起來到底當晚發生了什麼事,而朋友也對她的簡訊視而不見。在學校,同學們對她轉身不理,甚至竊竊私語著,她對這一切感到無力且一無所知。直到有人用假帳號在臉書上刊登了令她永生難忘的不堪影像。這些照片開始瘋狂流傳,因而吸引了警方介入調查,原本平靜的小鎮也陷入一陣騷動。沉淪的媒體報導、鄰人的流言蜚語,所有人都在談論Emma的故事,身為受害人的她生活從此天翻地覆。
Emma O'Donovan is eighteen, beautiful, and fearless. It's the beginning of summer in a quiet Irish town and tonight she and her friends have dressed to impress. Everyone is at the party, and all eyes are on Emma.

The next morning Emma's parents discover her collapsed on the doorstop of their home, unconscious. She is disheveled, bleeding, and disoriented, looking as if she had been dumped there.

To her distress, Emma can't remember what happened the night before. All she knows is that none of her friends will respond to her texts. At school, people turn away from her and whisper under their breath. Her mind may be a blank as far as the events of the previous evening, but someone has posted photos of it on Facebook under a fake account, "Easy Emma"--photos she will never be able to forget.

As the photos go viral and a criminal investigation is launched, the community is thrown into tumult. The media descends, neighbors chose sides, and people from all over the world want to talk about her story. Everyone has something to say about Emma.

Asking For It is a powerful story about the devastating effects of rape and public shaming, told through the awful experience of a young woman whose life is changed forever by an act of violence.
