WARNING: This book contains thoughts of suicide and it contains domestic abuse. Please don't read further if you're uncomfortable with it.
This books is a real-time book about the physical and emotional abuse suffered by Vanessa, herself. It's fragments of the journal she kept while suffering from the hands of her abuser. Don't Hit Me is like nothing I've ever read before. It is raw, it is emotional, and it is eye opening. It's a new perspective to what people stereotypically think woman go through during times of abuse. I always said "Why don't they just leave", that was horribly naive of me. It's so much more than just getting up and leaving. I feel like whether you've been through abuse or not this book can help you. It might help those suffering right now in one way or another and if you're not, it can help you understand what these victims go through. The picture is not always black and white, their is many underlining factors and circumstances that make getting out of a abusive relationship harder than it should be.
