The author deals with childhood sexual abuse with sensitivity and realism. Through flashbacks, the reader sees glimpses of her sexual abuse. As the story progresses, the reader experiences Kendra’s raw emotions and mounting fear as her abuser closes in on her.
To say SCARS is a page-turner is a cliché and I don’t want to demean the author's work by not being original. But the truth is I couldn't stop reading it. I worried with Kendra, smiled with her during her lighter moments and felt her fear as she was trapped with her abuser. I couldn't put the book down until I knew the outcome.
I won’t spoil the ending. SCARS is a powerful story of betrayal, survival and hope and a must-read for teens and young adults.
