Love Dessen books. As a mother of a teenage girl, I find these books wonderful conversation starters, which is why I read them. This story was about violence to women,m and how we can sometimes accept it as just something that happens, and why we lie about it to protect the abuser. The only thing I would change is I would have liked to know more about why the young man thought it was ok to treat his girlfriend this way, and what happened to him after it was all revealed.

Definitely the easiest way I know of to breach this difficult subject matter with my daughter, and for that Sara Dessen has my never-ending gratitude.
