Synopsis

Bitter End by Jennifer Brown

When Alex falls for the charming new boy at school, Cole, a handsome, funny, sports star who adores her, she can't believe she's finally found her soul mate - someone who truly understands her and loves her for who she really is. At first, Alex is blissfully happy. Sure, Cole seems a little jealous of her relationship with her best friends, Zack and Bethany, but what guy would want his girlfriend spending all of her time with another boy? But as the months pass, Alex can no longer ignore Cole's small put-downs, pinches, or increasingly violent threats. As Alex struggles to come to terms with the sweet boyfriend she fell in love with and the boyfriend whose 'love' she no longer recognises, she is forced to choose - between her 'true love' and herself.

Reviews

Brown demonstrates an expert ability to handle difficult subject matter...entirely authentic. The book's power - and its value - comes from the honest portrayal of characters who simply can't figure out how to bring an ugly, evident truth to light. Publishers Weekly Brown's writing flows smoothly and naturally...will linger on readers

-discussed topic with authority and authenticity...readers will be enthralled. Kirkus Reviews
