Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-9-- A book that explores many forms of abuse (physical, emotional, sexual), including that which is directed at children by adults and sibling-to-sibling; between spouses; and toward the elderly. Fictionalized examples are provided at the start of each chapter, followed by explanations in a question-and-answer format. There is a chapter on self-esteem, a list of further reading, and good information (as well as resources) on how and where to get help. Rench's concern is on preventing the abused from blaming themselves, and on seeking help. The information is realistic and accurate; the presentation is well organized and objective. Although there are other books on abuse for this age group, most are from a sociological perspective. In addition, other self-help books on sexual abuse don't cover the many forms of family violence. This book will fill an important need. --Jacqueline Rose, Southeast Regional Library, NC
Stephanie Zvirin
Short, obvious but not melodramatic scenarios, typical of the author's previous books, introduce discussion about violence at home. Employing the pronomial "you", Rench speaks directly to kids, outlining the characteristics of different kinds of abuse by answering a series of simple questions: "Why do my parents hurt me this way?" "What does a shelter look like?" Explanations, though short, offer plenty of insight into what constitutes different kinds of abuse, who's at fault, what motivates abusers, and what kids should do if family violence is occurring (Rench also touches briefly on the consequences of reporting a parent to police). Answers are direct, especially in the chapters on incest and sibling abuse, where Rench deals frankly with inappropriate sexual contacts. A consciousness-raising section on elder abuse is particularly noteworthy, and occasional paper-and-pencil exercises to focus readers are included. A somber but not frightening book that will help young people clarify their feelings and take appropriate action, whether the violence in their home is directed toward them or is something they witness happening to someone they live with and love. The list of hotline numbers will be helpful, but the index is too brief to be of much use.
