An ALA Best Book For Young Adults

The New York Times Book Review:
...a book aimed straight at adolescent sexual survivors...Janet Bode, who was careful to include a cross section of economic classes and ethnic groups in her powerful book "The Voices of Rape," does the same thing here...I admit...to zipping right through [the stories] with only the occasional incredulous pause. Adolescents' lives often do sound like soap operas; two teen-agers I know consumed this book in the same afternoon.

Kirkus Reviews:
Nonfiction on the raw, cutting edge...the stories are more than eye-opening.

Publishers Weekly:
Compassionate and compelling.

School Library Journal:
Books like this one may help YAs recognize and possibly recover from bad relationships.
