JF: Such a Pretty Girl (YA) (5/5)
This is a tough book to read. Meredith was sexually abused by her father, along with some neighborhood children. He was sentenced to nine years in prison but was released in three. Meredith has to deal with his return home and his desire to return to his bad habits. A very gritty but powerful novel, teens would definitely want to read this. This book has to be discussed however. It has too much realism to not be.
