Jailbait
Random House, 2005
Ages 15 and up

 
It's September 7, 1971, the first day of tenth grade for fifteen year old Andi Kaplan. Teased by the school bully because of her appearance, and largely ignored by her depressed mother and workaholic father, Andi spends most of her time alone until she meets Frank, a man more than twice her age. Because she is "jailbait," Frank forbids Andi to tell anyone about their relationship. As he turns from being loving and attentive to controlling and abusive, Andi finds herself more and more alone. How will she find the strength to save herself before it's too late?
