In Love and In Danger: A Teen's Guide to Breaking Free of Abusive Relationships

According to author Barrie Levy, as many as one out of three high school and college-age youth experiences violence in his or her intimate or dating relationships. In Love & in Danger is a guide designed to help teens help themselves. The book opens with the personal narratives of three young women. While the details of their stories are distinct, all three describe with devastating accuracy how unhealthy, addictive love differs from nurturing, positive relationships. Later chapters provide profiles of dating abusers, help readers identify whether their relationships are abusive, and offer suggestions for coping and making a difference. The quasi workbook format is helpful for young people embroiled in abusive relationships--whether they are abused and looking for escape or abusers looking for a means to change. --Ericka Lutz
