18. Dawn and the Older Boy (#37)

SCHOLASTIC

When Dawn starts dating older boy Travis, the BSC knows that something doesn’t feel right. Dawn begins changing things to please Travis, who is always bossing her around. Knowing this, the others try to get Dawn to break up with him. A story like this is important because it teaches kids on what an abusive relationship can look like. Abuse isn’t always physical, especially at such a young age. However, manipulation is always a sign of emotional abuse. And it’s so easy to overlook when you’re directly in it. But having your best friends there to try and help you makes a big difference.
