High school junior Elizabeth Carter is self-confident and outgoing with a bright future. Life is good for Elizabeth, then she meets Brad Evans. To those on the outside, and even to Elizabeth at first, her life gets even better with Brad. Slowly and insidiously, though, Brad takes control of Elizabeth. Is she really as lucky as she thinks she is? What price is she willing to pay to be this popular, charming, attractive senior boy's girlfriend? Is she envied...or pitied? Most importantly, does she have to lose herself in order to be Brad's significant other?
Losing Elizabeth is a book with a subject matter that is kind of hard to actually read, but its one that I think every young girl should read. It's about boyfriend abuse. A subject that young girls need to be warned about.
This gripping story is about a girl who ends up giving up everything for this one guy who tells her he loves her but doesn't show it in a way that is healthy. The book starts off with her in the hospital and the rest of the book shows us, the reader, how she got there.
He ends up keeping her away from friends, tennis, makes her give up all her dreams and goals all for him. It is one emotional rollercoster ride reading this book, but its a great one. I love the way the author depicts this story, she didn't really sugar coat anything and I really liked that about it. I defiantly think this is a book that should be in every High school and junior high schools. I defiantly want to applaud the author for trying to get the word out about these kinds of abusive relationships.
