Both young women in this novel have witnessed violence against women and experience violence themselves.I highly recommend this title as an accurate portrayal of teen dating violence. by Carrie Mesrobian Goodreads | My Review | Amazon 2013. High school senior Zephyr is focused on field hockey and getting into Boston College, but still makes time for a new boy, Alec, who quickly becomes abusive, both physically and emotionally.At first, he was really nice to me and always invited me over to his house after school.He really liked cars and had a place set up in his Dad's garage where he worked on a broken down car that his Uncle had given him.
Teen is an offshoot of Kids Peace which has six office locations throughout Maine including one in Bangor.
Most afternoons after school, I would get into trouble with my Mom because Benny made me stay with him while he worked on his car.
When I told him that I had to leave, he told me that I wanted to rush home because I didn't care about him and that there were lots of girls who would want to hang around him.
After a few months, he didn't want me to do anything with my friends.
He was possessive and jealous and would make fun of anyone who was my friend.
