a prisoner within

Tiffany is a seventeen-year-old girl caught in a battle for existence. As she tries to claim rights to her own life and mind, her abusive mother struggles to maintain control.

Pouring her hatred for the world onto her daughter, Tiffany suffers under her mother’s guise of concern as her mother convinces everyone that Tiffany’s wounds are self-inflicted. Fighting to prove she’s not mentally unstable and seeking escape from her mother’s tyranny, Tiffany must make the ultimate choice as to who lives and who dies. But how far is she willing to go. and is redemption worth the price of her soul?



Tiffany is a 17 year old girl suffering physical and mental abuse at the hands of her mother. The story kept me turning the pages as I was interested to find out what happened to her, but after working in a hospital for as long as I did I know that the psychiatrist would have reported Tiffany’s mother to the police, and that investigations would occur and a social worker would be sent to the house if there were too many visits to the ER room. I also wondered why Tiffany did not think to report the abuse to her teachers at school? However, the story is quite suspenseful, but at times Tiffany did seem rather too passive for somebody of that age. However, when all is said and done this story would definitely appeal to older teens.
