Block, F. (1994). The Hanged Man. New York, NY.: HarperCollins.
Honestly, I hate this book. The hanged man is about Laurea, who is on a path to self discovery while dealing with an eating disorder and being molested by her father. The entire book is her struggle to keep her secret, until the end when she meets Jack who helps her face her demons and help recover herself. I would probably only give this book to seniors in high school because of its content on rape, drugs, sex. and pediophilia. I would pair it with Go Ask Alice and have a discusssion about how the two are similar based on the girls’ experiences, but different because of their circumstances.
