Such a Pretty Girl by Laura Wiess
Such a Pretty Girl is the story of a young girl who was sexually abused by her father. Brave enough to tell, she aids in sending her father to jail. During the trial it is discovered that her father, who was a teacher and a coach had abused many children in the town. Meredith's world is once again turned upside down when her father is released early due to good behavior. Although there is a restraining order on her father, Meredith's mother doesn't see the severity of the abuse and rents an apartment in thier complex. This story takes the reader through the anger and fear Meredith holds as she struggles to figure out how to stop him from abusing someone else while not sacrificing herself. Very strong message in this book.
