Leslie can't seem to avoid trouble, whether it's at school or at home. Just as life seems at its lowest, Jason McCready, the exceedingly cool new guy at school, enters her life. Now Leslie is the envy of all the girls. But Jason's appearance is deceiving--he is determined to control every aspect of Leslie's life and he begins terrorizing her in unimaginable ways. When a substitute teacher reads the private English-class journal in which Leslie reveals Jason's abuse, Leslie is suddenly forced into hard choices and terrifying action to take back her life. Updated to reflect the contemporary world of the Internet, cell phones and text messaging, Leslie's Journal is a suspenseful, fast-paced story about love, friendship and what it means to stand up for yourself.

A very dark and excellent novel that travels deep into what can happen in an abusive relationship especially for a teenage girl who has no where to go to seek help. What I find amazing is that the author is a man writing in a teenage girl perspective. Usually, when reading books where the author is the opposite sex of the character turns out okay or a bit too much that like or a female or male when its trying to hard to put the particular sex of a character. An amazing piece of work.
