Ich gehöre ihm
I Belong to Him
Caro is a fifteen-year-old girl suffering from the classic insecurities of puberty. And there’s someone who knows how to take advantage of that: Nick. At first he treats her like a princess and fulfils her every wish, then draws her into a vicious circle of manipulation and dependence. You want to scream “Stop!“ when Caro, the first-person narrator, goes to school in the morning, spends the afternoon working the streets, and in the evening goes home to her unsuspecting parents, or when “lover boy“ Nick manages to twist her round his little finger time and time again. Will she find a way out of this situation?
I Belong to Him is a very powerful and important book about sexual violence, manipulation and dependence, written with the collaboration of ex-police officer and education spokesperson Bärbel Kannemann (www.no-loverboys.de).
