Don't Hurt Laurie!

If you read my little intro thing on my blog, you'll already know this, but if you don't, I'm reading a book called Don't Hurt Laurie! It's really good, even though I haven't finished it.

It's about a girl named Laurie. Her mom's name is Annabelle. This is exactly what the back says:

"You have no consideration for anyone else! Now clean up this mess!" Laurie bent down to pick up the things she'd dropped. And Annabelle kicked her...

Laurie's been keeping a secret for as long as she can remember, a secret that she's afraid to tell anyone else. The only other person who knows is Annabelle, her mother-because Annabelle is the one who beats her.

Then, one day, Annabelle goes too far-and Laurie is finally desperate enough to do something to save herself.


I was interested the moment I read the back. Also, when I started reading, I realized what a jerk Annabelle really is. Everytime it mention the details about what happened to Laurie, I feel sorry for her, even though I know that she's a character in a book. It's really sad that some mom's are the same as, or even worse than, Annabelle is.

I can't wait to finish this book! So, if you'll excuse me, I have some reading to do.

For a serious comment:

It is truly sad that this type of situation exists. There is a reason it is condemned more harshly by Jesus than anything else he addressed. It simply should not be.

Glad you are enjoying your book. It will open your eyes to a side of the world you have never seen... If you want to talk, you know we are here.
