Patch Up By: Stephanie Witter~ Kayreads

Patch Up by Stephanie Witter was an emotional book. I could feel the healing within the words of the author. As someone who's gone to college and survived the experience I related very well to both Skye and Duke. I wanted to get inside of Skye's head and help her to feel special and important just as Duke tried doing with her from their very first encounter. The phrase "it takes one to know one" has never been more true. The only thing I think that Stephanie should have added to this story was a disclaimer at the very beginning of the book. When dealing with domestic violence and depression it is so important that readers are prepared for those things. With that being said I thought that Stephanie did a fantastic job of showing the severity of the situation and complete honesty in how a victim of domestic violence can feel and also in how those around you can help you when you no longer expect it.
