What an Abusive Relationship Looks Like – An Illustrated Story
posted on October 23, 2017
“Dragonslippers: This is What an Abusive Relationship Looks Like” is an illustrated story of the author’s journey through an abusive situation.
It’s the story of how of a young person’s health and happiness was slowly taken away after her relationship became abusive. The early story is relatable, two people meeting and having normal growing pains in their dating relationship. It’s hard to pinpoint where the relationship became abusive as it is played out frame by frame.
To say this book is enlightening, and an eye-opener is an understatement. You experience the abuse first hand in her thoughts and her drawings. This book is a work of art ~ not in its illustrations, but in putting a very powerful topic right out there ~ in your face. It is brutally honest, maddening, frustrating, all at the same time. Everyone should read this, both men and women! It sheds light on a topic that is too often swept under the carpet to fester. – ByVTRon, November 7, 2015
