Bitter End

The author’s note at the end of this book sums it up for me.

We say, “If a man ever hit me I’d…”

But how do you really know?

Alex is a smart girl. She is social and successful in school and her job.

She is in love.

And that spirals into a situation she can’t control and can’t seem to leave.

Since the story is told from her eyes, we see the struggle she has with each excuse she gives for the boy who beats her.

She forgives punches and emotional abuse until she can’t take it anymore.

This story illuminates an issue that millions of people deal with, are embarrassed by, are trapped in.

Jennifer Brown does an incredible job of giving a voice to people whose words are lost.
