The Rules of Survival by Nancy Werlin

Matthew lives in fear everyday, he tries to gage his mom’s moods to protect himself and his sisters; but she is unpredictable. When he gets a taste of what a normal life feels like, he can’t do it anymore, he needs to change things. Does he have the time to wait for help from the adults who are aware, but are afraid too?
Riveting, gripping, absorbing, all those words you use to describe a book that you can’t put down, go ahead and fill in the blank like a Mad Lib, because this book is it.
Recommended for grades 8 and up.
