Seventeen-year-old Becky Martin, smart, funny, ambitious, aspires to be a stand-up comic. While setting out to make her goal a reality, she meets Kip Costello, a rising star in the San Francisco comedy club scene. Where Becky once felt invisible around guys, she now basks in Kip's adoration. And what could be better than an attractive, intense boyfriend who cares about every detail of her life?

But Becky soon discovers a darker side to Kip, where emotional and physical abuse go hand in hand. How is it possible to feel so special yet so worthless at the same time? As the relationship goes from loving to controlling, Becky must find the courage to get the help she needs before it's too late.

In this powerful novel, Janet Tashjian tackles the difficult subject of teen relationship abuse from the viewpoints of both the victim and the perpetrator, showing that there are no easy answer for either.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandra McLeod | 12/28/2013

    " Becky Martin is a 17-year-old comedienne who believes she has found true love with fellow comedian Kip Costello. As Kip becomes increasingly more possessive and controlling, however, Becky finds herself enmeshed in an abusive relationship she has difficulty giving up. This novel is written with great sensitivity as both sides of the abusive relationship are explored, and all the characters are very believable. Recommended for young men as well as for young women.
