I want to read that...

But I Love Him by Amanda Grace

From Goodreads:  Tonight was so much worse than anything before it.

Tonight he didn't stop after the first slap.

At the beginning of senior year, Ann was a smiling, straight-A student and track star with friends and a future. Then she met a haunted young man named Connor. Only she can heal his emotional scars; only he could make her feel so loved-and needed. Ann can't recall the pivotal moment it all changed, when she surrendered everything to be with him, but by graduation, her life has become a dangerous high wire act. Just one mistake could trigger Connor's rage, a senseless storm of cruel words and violence damaging everything-and everyone-in its path.

This evocative slideshow of flashbacks reveals a heartbreaking story of love gone terribly wrong.

I've already read some great reviews for this one.  Amanda Grace is a pen name for Mandy Hubbard, the author of Prada and Prejudice and You Wish.  She also has Ripple being released next year which I can't wait to read.

But I Love Him is published by Flux, May 8th 2011.

Didn't know this was Mandy Hubbard. Pen names are so tricky haha. This sounds like a really powerful read. Definitely keeping an eye out for this book.

*what is with the above comment? It is on so many blogs!*

Anyway, I don't think this is for me. It sounds such a painful book to read. I am looking forward to Ripple though.
