Safe by Susan Shaw

This is a book about a teenager recovering from a horrific experience. Tracy is attacked and raped, and while the book never describes in detail her experience, the reader knows that she will never be the same. She tries to go on with her life, but finds herself unable to even leave the house without her father. Tracy's mom died when she was young, but she has always felt her presence with her. Now, when she needs her mom the most, she is unable to find comfort in their connection. Tracy has a good father and a loyal best friend, but Tracy needs more than they can give her. At it's heart this is a story of recovery and reaching out. Readers who like books about abuse, recovery, and serious topics will want to read to the end to find out how Tracy emerges from a terrible experience.
