“Punch Like A Girl”

It’s not the girl in the fight; it’s the fight in the girl.

Nobody understands why Tori has suddenly become so moody and violent. When she attacks a stranger in a store, she ends up doing community service at a shelter for victims of domestic violence. She bonds with a little girl named Casey, but when Casey is abducted while in Tori’s care, Tori is racked with guilt, certain that she should have been able to prevent the abduction. During the search for Casey, Tori comes face to face with an ex-boyfriend who sexually assaulted her at a party. Only when she speaks out about the assault is she able to begin to heal.

This is a great book dealing with a sensitive subject.  It shows the importance of telling someone your story for your own well-being and the safety of others.  I found it to be a fairly quick read.  Check out these trailers:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cO1_-8JlG1M and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9sWaQ_MmVs.
