The Rules of Survival, by Nancy Werlin (audio)

rules-of-survivalThis book was fantastic. It showed that abuse is not always necessarily just physical or sexual, and it also showed the difficulties that agencies like Child Protective Services have in cases of not-quite-as-clear-cut abuse. The performance, read by Daniel Passer, was very good, and I liked the way the book was laid out (as a letter from the oldest child to the youngest). The only thing I really could have done without was the last chapter, which felt tacked on and unnecessary. I liked the way the second-to-last chapter ended on its own, and thought that made a great ending to the story.
