School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-- A brief, although sufficiently descriptive, introduction to the various forms of abuse prevalent in the U. S. Beginning with an overview of the topic, Hyde shows abuse as affecting a wide range of people at various ages; while devoting discussion to familiar aspects of the subject, she also focuses on newer, lesser-known arenas (the influence of drugs on abuse, the atmosphere of neglect created by homelessness, etc.). Readers gain concrete information on how to help themselves, their friends, or family members trapped in abusive cycles. The appended ``Where To Find Help'' section includes national hotline numbers and resources; a short glossary and list of further reading complete this clearly written, informative, and encouraging volume. Hyde explores the subject in greater detail in Cry Softly! (1986) and Sexual Abuse (1987, both Westminster). --Celia A. Huffman, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Cleveland
