Goodreads Synopsis:
When Alex falls for the charming new boy at school, Cole -- a handsome, funny, sports star who adores her -- she can't believe she's finally found her soul mate . . . someone who truly loves and understands her.

At first, Alex is blissfully happy. Sure, Cole seems a little jealous of her relationship with her close friend Zack, but what guy would want his girlfriend spending all her time with another boy? As the months pass, though, Alex can no longer ignore Cole's small put-downs, pinches, or increasingly violent threats.

As Alex struggles to come to terms with the sweet boyfriend she fell in love with and the boyfriend whose "love" she no longer recognizes, she is forced to choose -- between her "true love" and herself.

My Thoughts:

This is the first time that I have read Jennifer Brown and I was absolutely blown away with this book. This is such an intense book with very mature subject matter and I could not have loved it more. This is a book that every single teenage girl needs to read.

Bitter End is the journey of one girls struggle to find herself even in an abusive relationship. It was an amazing thing to go through the book with Alex and watch her find herself, her self esteem through the worst situation that a young girl can go through. I think this is a great book for every young girl to read.

This story touches my heart in many ways and it is absolutely one of my most favourite reads of 2012! Jennifer hit me with such an emotional novel that it has left me with an ever lasting impression on the kind of author that Jennifer is. She has the ability to just pour these amazing elements and emotional aspects into her words.

She is extremely talented and I cried throughout the entire novel. There were great, happy moments as well, but I loved the intense, gritty and as I have already said emotional elements of this story. 

This is a novel that every girl and woman needs to have on their shelves.
