This is an amazing, creatively produced book in graphic novel style that details what it's like to be in an abusive relationship. It's based on the author's actual experience (names changed). Very easy reading (under an hour), but it gets to the heart of the issue and allows the reader to really experience and understand the situation so much more powerfully and realistically than simply reading about it in the standard way.

I highly recommend this book not only for adults, but especially for teenage girls, due to its easy readability and also for its valuable and much-needed insight.
