Meredith's father was supposed to be in jail until Meredith turned eighteen. But now Meredith is only fifteen, and her father is coming home from prison. Her father is a child molester who raped her, and now he's coming back to live next to Meredith's apartment. This is a nightmare come true for Meredith, but she's not going to let her father hurt her again. No matter what the cost.
Laura Wiess's Such a Pretty Girl is a powerful, riveting book. The subject matter isn't easy, but the character voices are so beautifully done that the result is amazing. I loved this book to pieces, but I wouldn't consider it abook for teens; in my opinion, it's more suitable for adults.
