Editorial Reviews

Romance goes terribly wrong in this second book in the author's Real Life series. Bryn, 15, is assaulted byher gorgeous boyfriend, Preston, and she tries to hide her bruises and deny her shame until her fatherdiscovers the abuse and makes her press charges. The court hearings drag on, and Bryn just wants to makeit all go away. Meanwhile, Preston threatens her, and his in-crowd friends call her a drama queen and sendher ugly text messages. Bryn finds help from her hip grandmother, who teaches Bryn to surf wild waves,and also from Jesus, who speaks to her from a contemporary version of the Book of Luke. Will she evertrust a boy and fall in love again? Romance does return when Bryn gets close with Sean, a cool surfer whosupports her. Rue folds in quite a lot for one YA novel, but the secrets will grab readers, and the dialogueis right on target. ---- Hazel Rochman
