Rated 4 out of 5 by from breaks your heart An amazing story; sad, scary and very realistic. It speaks the story of 18 year old Annie who becomes pregnant. Her husband becomes abusive, and the book go's on about how she copes with that. I agree with the opinion that if you feel that you should read this book then do, it shows you what courage really mean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from an unfortunatly true story wow this book was so sad and very horrorish!! it takes u behind doors of an abusive relationship. The stuff that 18 year old anne goes through is horrible and the fact that shes a mom and living far away from home doesnt help. I recomend this book to anyone who feels needs it.
