This book was really good. I read some books by this author in high school and decided to try this one, i wasn't dissapointed. It would be a great book to have in high school communications skills class or a womens shelter. Great for teens in rocky relationships to learn that you can be srong and push on! It is not difficult to read, but the story really draws you in.
