No one really got hurt and the stories still resonate. Win-Win situation.

Don’t get it twisted, abusive relationships are unfortunate situations that sadly, are common in our modern society, and has been for longer than we would like to admit it. A relationship where one party continually mistreats the other frequently, relishes in it, and continually uses every excuse to do so is something that has to be looked down upon.

So, you might ask, what’s the point of glorifying it in fiction? The precise opposite of glorifying that is! By presenting the readers, especially young readers, fiction books that contain abusive relationship within their dynamics we can introduce them to the concept, teach them the warning signs for early detection, and, hopefully, keep them safe.

The fact that the accounts are fictional is a plus since real human beings of flesh and blood were not hurt, physically or psychologically, for the making of these anecdotal tales. Let them be a warning for those in those in such relationships on how to get out.
