Life hasn't been easy for fifteen-year-old Lizzie Jackson since her father's sudden death four years ago. Shortly after he died, her mother, Lydia, began dating and drinking herself into oblivion, leaving Lizzie to parent her younger brother, Charlie. Things go from bad to worse when Lydia marries Dean. To protect Charlie from Dean's rage, Lizzie makes herself the target of his abuse. But when Dean sexually assaults Lizzie, things change forever. Can she continue to ensure her brother's safety after she flees their home?
"Enough is in the gritty tradition of many of the Orca novels, and is similarly powerful. Lizzie is a real world example of a teen torn apart by decisions she should not have to make at her age. We must admire her courage and resilience in the face of these challenges."
