    Kristen Flippin (11/18/ PM). I love this poem! This pretty much describes my life to a tee, only my husband waited until I was disabled to start hitting me!5/5.   Overall, this book is very well written, and it is an important book in terms of understanding domestic violence because it is true. I read this right after reading Black & Blue by Anna Quindlen, and I have to say that this was much better -- the writing was more vibrant and, although I don't know what it's like to be in an abusive relationship, it seemed more real -- her fear was so much more 5/5(5).
