Child abuse does not always leave visible marks; sometimes the abuse is emotional or sexual. Often, a child is abused in more than one way. Although abuse is never the victim’s fault, they may feel too guilty or ashamed to tell anyone about it. Therefore, it is important for others to recognize the signs. Through informative text, full-color photographs, discussion questions, and detailed infographics, this volume teaches young adults what abuse looks like and how to get help for themselves or for others if they recognize signs of an abusive situation.
