Shackled is a book about abuse and controlling behavior. This book was very good and well written. Lucy and her family have just moved to Washington, and on her first day of school she meets the charming Ryan. Soon he is asking her out and she is very intrigued by him and thinks she is in love. But soon Ryan's behavior starts to change, and soon Lucy is feeling scared and trapped. It even includes and anklet to keep track of her location at all times, and she is trapped wearing jeans to hide it from everyone. And we learn that Ryan's mom, May, has been just as trapped and abused by the father, Mark, their whole relationship. As you read you can feel the emotions involved with the ones being abused, and just want to set them free. Luckily Lucy has some help and gets her strength from Mason. Mason is wonderful and loving and caring. We need more of him. Mark, the dad, was a whole bag of creepy, and I hope to never meet anyone like him.

Great book and I recommend Angela Carling's books to everyone.
