Brown is Back

Bitter End by Jennifer Brown

With another book about another violent subject that makes us all uncomfortable. After taking on school shootings and high school status in Hate List, she tackles an abusive relationship in Bitter End. The thrill of being asked out by such a good looking and confident boy manages to eclipse Alex's common sense, her friendships, and eventually her self respect. I'm guessing it will have parents upset and be a draw for readers, but the age cut off is tricky.
