Elisa Sims (elisalisasims) When I was in the fifth grade (this has been about fifteen years ago), my teacher read a book aloud to my class about a young girl-- who I imagine was probably around the same age I was (10-11)-- who was abused by her mother. I don't remember a father being in the picture at all. I don't remember any graphic depictions of violence.

What I DO remember very clearly was a scene in which the mother displayed a rare act of kindness toward the girl on her birthday. She took her daughter out to a nice restaurant and let her get a fun, short haircut.

I know that's not much to go on, but if anyone has any ideas, please let me know! Thanks!

Don't Hurt Laurie by Willo Davis Roberts fits the general description. I don't recall the scene with the haircut.
