Abuse relationships are so hard. I speak from personal experience. My first marriage was nothing but verbal and then physical abuse. And you do tend to try and make excuses for the person who is harming you. You think it’s my fault that he is hurting me. I did something stupid or said something wrong. I like Ronnie in the book found our inner strength to say NO MORE! But unlike in the book, my ex-husband is still out there walking around.
I was amazed at how short this book was. It told an entire story with no cuts! I loved it. I just finished a book that was well over 400 pages and it didn't do as well with its story that Knee Deep did!!
I give this one a TINGLING 5 STARS!
Shawn is the guy Ronnie Bird promised her life to at the age of fourteen. He's her soul mate. He's more uptight every day, but it's not his fault. His family life is stressful, and she's adding to it. She just needs to be more understanding, and he'll start to be the boy she fell in love with. She won’t give up on someone she’s loved for so long.
Luke is her best friend, and the guy she hangs with to watch girlie movies in her large blanketopias. He's the guy she can confide in before she even goes to her girlfriends, and the guy who she's playing opposite in Romeo and Juliet. Now her chest flutters every time he gets too close. This is new. Is Ronnie falling for him? Or is Juliet? The lines are getting blurry, but leaving one guy for another is not something that a girl like Ronnie does.
Shawn’s outbursts are starting to give her bruises, and Luke’s heart breaks as Ronnie remains torn. While her thoughts and feelings swirl around the lines between friendship and forever, she’s about to lose them both.
