it was amazing

Absolutely chilling and realistic. My 14 year old daughter read this book first and insisted that I read it. The author's comment in the Author's Notes that abusive relationships are not typically addressed in the high school setting is extremely relevant. Young relationships are often where the pattern of lifetime abusive relationships can start. Shackled is a very well written book, and I highly recommend that teens and parent's of teens read this book. I consider this book acceptable for even younger teens because while the topic of abusive relationships is well addressed, this book is neither graphically sexual or overly violent. In fact, this is a very good book for a younger teen because this is the time of life when ideas and expectations about romantic relationships are starting to form. This would be a great book for a teen reading group.
