Blurb (from Goodreads):A Novel About Teenage Tragedy.
Life can't get much worse for Anna, and abusive parents just tops the list. When she sneaks off to the senior formal and puts her brothers life in danger she hits rock bottom - and there might never be a way back.
A novel set in Australia. Where Anna has to learn to deal with her emotions, trust her friends, stand up to her parents, and be responsible for her actions.
Anna is an average teenage girl, she isn't a kickass action character and there's no supernatural powers coming to the rescue here, just everyday hope, some hard work and a bit of help from her friends. She discovers words and writing help her sift through her thoughts and emotions and that sometimes right and wrong aren't always clear cut - but sometimes they are.

My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars
This was a short novella about a girl and her brother who suffered abuse at home.
Anna and Marcus were both okay characters, but I didn’t love them. I did feel quite sorry for them and their home situation, but they didn’t help themselves either. Marcus seemed the more mature of the two, whilst Anna did things that were bound to get her in trouble.
The storyline in this was about Anna and Marcus’ abusive parents and how they would get yelled at and beaten up. I found the book quite dull though unfortunately, and I struggled to keep reading.
The ending to this was also disappointing, as the book seemed to just stop, and nothing seemed to be resolved.
