Saving Grad (Lorimer SideStreets) (Paperback)
Vienna, a mixed-race teen and her mother experience racism and domestic violence while living with her stepfather. They try to escape the situation by moving to a big city where they begin to start new lives. But staying under the radar is tough, and when her stepfather shows up threatening her at her new high school's grad party, Vienna has to find a way to keep herself, her mother, and her friends out of harm's way.
Saving Grad illustrates the very real circumstances victims of domestic abuse face and one family's struggle to escape a violent situation.
