This is an important novel about teen relationships. By nature, teens tend to be secretive. Consequently, this issue often remains hidden or goes unnoticed.
Elizabeth is an intelligent, athletic girl, though a bit insecure. Brad is a high school hero. To Elizabeth’s surprise, Brad takes an interest in her. She is flattered and they begin dating. However, Brad then takes control of both Elizabeth and her life. Before long, emotional abuse begins and escalates into physical abuse.
The book is well written. It is geared to the teen aged group that it is written about. I highly recommend it to teens and to those who love them, as a warning, or even better a possible prevention.
