Grade 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
