The approach is informative, realistic, and encouraging. The emphasis throughout is on the need to talk about the abuse, get help, and know that abuse is never the victim's fault.

Written to and for teens, this book belongs in all school and public libraries, counselors' offices, doctors'v offices, and social-service agencies.
