"Tashjian has refreshingly stayed pretty clear of the traditional problem-novel cliches about abusive relationships, instead drawing a situation in which many readers would be able to see themselves....This is a thoughtful and involving work on a complicated subject, and it'll set a lot of readers talking."
From the Publisher
Annotation When 17-year-old aspiring comedian Becky Martin meets fellow comic Kip Costello, they instantly fall for each other. Head over heals in love, Becky initially fails to notice Kip's controlling, and often bullying, behavior. As Becky becomes more aware of the fact that she is in an emotionally and physically abusive relationship, she works to free herself from Kip's control.
Editors Note While working to achieve her dream of becoming a stand-up comedian, Becky Martin meets the love of her life in a young man named Kip Costello, but when the relationship suddenly goes sour and Kip becomes abusive, Becky must find the courage to break free from him and get the help she needs.
