Ahh the lack of half stars is killing me!!! There are parts of this book that rocked my face off. There were parts that were just good. I can't give a five stars even though I really really want to. This book deals with some that is close to my and a lot of womens heart. Which is abuse. I've been in a violent relationship. My mom was in an abusive relationsip at one point to. I love that this book addresses this issue in a fairly mature way. Will I read more by Ms. Campbell? Of course. Will I recommend this book to others? Why, yes, yes I will.
