The purpose of young adult literature is often twofold: to tell a story, and to send a message, usually in the form of a much-needed lesson. But offering a lesson to teenagers is less graceful, less subtle, than conveying an idea or theme, and these books can feel like after-school specials. The lesson in both books — that dating violence is real and dangerous — is worth teaching. Nearly one-quarter of teenage girls report verbal abuse from their boyfriends, and nearly one in five have been threatened with violence if they try to break things off. Some 24 percent of teenagers say they know at least one peer who has been the victim of dating abuse. Neither Brown nor Caletti hits readers with such statistics, but they do take pains to make their portrayals of abuser and victim fit the established profile. Both Clara and Alexandra are surprised that such desirable young men could be interested in them, and ignore protests from friends and family that their new loves are too controlling.
Domestic abuse remains to be a hidden problem in the Polish community. We also know that domestic violence in Polish families can be dangerous, almost half of the women who contacted us were at a high risk of serious harm or even death. Polish perpetrators of domestic violence often don't receive enough attention and support to help them address their behaviours that led to the breakdown of their families. They often pose a risk to victims even after separation. They also struggle to come to terms with failed relationships and are very reluctant to ask for help. Suicide rates among Polish men are one of the highest in the EU and men tend to end their lives five times more often than women. We help them understand the nature of abuse, its impact on their children and empower them to move forward with their lives.
