Tales of Abuse

There is always one kind of story that I think young adults should read at least one book on and that’s abuse. It’s a powerful topic that gets a lot of talk, but does lecturing about it make a difference? Books, in my experience, do more because they illustrate and visualize the dire situation real people live in when suffering abuse: Alex Flinn’s Breathing Underwater, Anna Quindlen’s Black and Blue, An Na’s A Step from Heaven are the ones that come to mind. What other books have you read that center around abuse that you would recommend?
