A very different perspective on domestic violence and its impact. Remember reading this as a teen and not quite getting the end or getting it but not wanting to. Thought provoking about powerlessness.
Before social media, teenage girls used to advertise in magazines for pen pals. I read this when I was 13 and the ending left me gobsmacked. I then invited my friend for a sleepover and made her read it just so I had someone to talk to about it 😂. Then, when I became a teacher, I made my class read it (my friend found it hilarious that I was now being paid to do this). Dated, yes, but the questions relating to violence? Timeless.
