But Becky soon discovers a darker side to Kip, where emotional and physical abuse go hand in hand. How is it possible to feel so special yet so worthless at the same time? As the relationship goes from loving to controlling, Becky must find the courage to get the help she needs before it's too late.
In this powerful novel, Janet Tashjian tackles the difficult subject of teen relationship abuse from the viewpoints of both the victim and the perpetrator, showing that there are no easy answer for either.
"Tashjian allows readers to feel Becky's overpowering happiness and blindness to Kip's faults as they empathize with his overwhelming fear of losing control." (School Library Journal)
