Rachel Sontag tries everything to please her parents. She gets good grades, she obeys her curfew, and she strains to follow the myriad household rules that her parents impose. But nothing will ever be good enough for her pathologically controlling father. For behind her family's apparently happy exterior lies a disturbing pattern of psychological abuse at the hands of a man whose behavior becomes ever crueler and more irrational. Her mother, over-medicated and desperate to salvage her marriage, can - or will - do nothing but watch. As her family disintegrates under the pressure of her father's mania, Rachel is forced to ever greater extremes to free herself from his crushing grip, in this compelling and beautifully written memoir about courage, survival and escape.
