Would you leave everyone you love to escape the one you fear?
Cathryn's father is ambidextrous—one hand for love, the other for rage. She hides her bruises beneath long-sleeves, makeup, and lies. Though she longs to tell her friends the truth, she can't risk her father's discovering her plans. Maybe this year will be different. Maybe this year she'll escape.
Fans of Kristin Hannah's The Great Alone and Laurie Halse Anderson's The Impossible Knife of Memory will love this poignant story of courage, hope, and resilience.
