The most painful book I've ever read. It should be required reading not only for young adults but for teachers, social workers and parents dealing with the problem of child abuse. The author portrays the fear and bitterness of a child caught in her father's 'secret' abuses and the devastation at not finding the support of her mother. Lisa had a close relationship with her father but the kisses and cuddles developed into a nightmare of illicit activities. When she meets Mike, she finds herself unable to develop a normal relationship until she decides the only way out is to disappear - for good. A powerful and extraordinary book.
