My Only Escape

   (4 reviews)

Every day after school, young Zack runs home after his last class, hoping to avoid his abusive father's rage and avoid anymore physical and emotional bruises at home. It isn't until he meets a beautiful stranger at school that he begins to wonder whether or not he's worth anything at all. Can he live in one world and fantasize about the other? Or will he have to choose?

My review won't do this story justice but I'll try.First this is a really really tough topic that's all too real but it has be talked about and never ignored although it is way too often.

The story centers around Zack and the way the authors able to express the raw emotion felt by Zack tells me that this author was very close to a situation like this be it a relative, friend or maybe even...well I'll leave it there. As a reader you will feel very vividly what Zack was feeling on an everyday basic.Some chapters will make you cry and feel exhausted.

What made Zack soldier on besides his own self defense mechanisms was when he met what looks to be the love of his life in Brody who was perfect is role also two very fiercely loyal friends in Adam and Sam if Zack didn't have them this could have very easily been a different outcome.

Seriously I could have given this 10 stars but it only allows us to give 5.Certain parts of the ending may surprise you at times reading this will be tough but hang in there it will be well worth it

I gave you 5 stars not only for the topic of this story but also for the endurance you went through in having to write it. I recommend this story to any reader who has been through this kind of torture. This is a story of Zack going through a touchy kind of horror at the hands of a family member. With the love of Brody and a friend (Adam) and his mom, he finally got brave enough to make it stop. Violence doesn't help but it sometimes makes you grow up faster and helps you realize that you can be the person you have always wanted to be even though sometimes it has to be put into writing.

One of the most moving stories I have ever read. A very well written addictive story, that sounds as if it was truly told from the heart. While certain passages are difficult to deal with, and can be upsetting, it is important to understand what some people have deal with.

You feel as you actually a part of Zack's life, you will live the highs and the lows, the ups and the downs you will feel like you actually know Zack. The author paints such a detailed picture of  Zach, his friends, and their surroundings that you feel that you are actually a part of Zack's world.

This story is well worth the time it takes to read it, and if you have got as far as reading the reviews, and still haven't made up your mind to read the story, I urge you to do so ... You will not be disappointed.

what can I say? Other than this book was masterfully written. as a reader you can feel the true anguish that the author is expressing. It makes you want to hug the author and tell them that they are truly special. but be worn it's a hard read you will need a lot of tissues. and it makes you look and really think about what Zack went through during his childhood. Yes I would highly recommend this book but with a warning of be prepared for lot of tissues in your trash can by the end of the book.
