View: 2880Cally was like any other teenage girl; she was smart, funny, caring, and beautiful. She loved going shopping with her mother, Kate, as well as beating her dad, Bill, at a game of basketball. Sure, she had her fair share of problems, like peer pressure and the occasional arguments with her parents--which usually led to being grounded. However, none of this could ever prepare her for the ultimate problem, an abusive boyfriend. Cally had been with her boyfriend, Ryan, for exactly one year. Nine months of that year was absolutely wonderful. They did everything together and were very much in love. However, the last three months were a pure and living hell for Cally. Ryan had started drinking very heavily and had become mentally and physically abusive. The abuse was terrible for Cally; in only three months Ryan had busted her lip and had put bruises all over Cally's body. The abuse was getting worse by the day and Cally knew that she had to end the relationship soon. Cally still cared for Ryan, despite his cruel and abusive ways, but she knew that he was not going to change; he was too far gone. Cally had planned to break up with him on prom night, but as a fatal turn of events unfolds, Cally discovers that it's not so easy to escape from Ryan's grip.
