Just Like Elizabeth Taylor by Lu Ann Brobst Staheli

June 11, 2013 | 1 Comment

Twelve-year-old Liz Taylor has known for a long time that she would escape—escape the abuse against herself, and against her mother. She just didn’t know how or when.

Then the perfect opportunity comes—money left of the table by her mother’s abuser—and Liz is on the run. But a girl her age doesn’t have many options when it comes to hideouts, making a K.O. A. Kampground and a nearby middle school her perfect choices.

If only she can keep to herself, Liz, now using the name Beth, knows she can make it on her own, until things change, and she realizes she must face her situation head on if she is to save herself and her mom.

Deals with some difficult issues.

    Very tasteful handling of difficult subject matter. I would be comfortable letting teens read this and talking about it with them. Well written.
