Things Change by Patrick Jones - ADVISABLE

Jones, Patrick Things Change, 216 p. Walker, 2004 (new in paperback), $7.95.

Mature Content: R; Violence: PG-13


Johanna was a perfect, straight-A student, but happy-go-lucky, charming Paul has caught her attention and she is willing to overlook a wide variety of faults in order to be within his circle. Even the fact that he is dominating, controlling and abusing her. Joanna’s wakeup call may come too late- she will have to face facts and reach out to get the help she needs to break the cycle.

This book is so powerful and so moving that I totally champion its place within the shelves of high school libraries. Your copies will probably be stolen – so be ready to replace them as needed.
