The Summer of the Bear
My parents called me “Bear” or “Holley Bear” when I was a kid. I think they meant it in a cute, teddy bear kind of way. My dad bought this book for me several years ago when we visited a used bookstore. I think he was just glad to get out of the store for less than $10. Thanks Dad!

I read this before ever personally knowing about abusive relationships. It was a good book and would read again. Still grateful that I’m not in hiding anymore.
