Empty Cup by Suzanne Costigan Review & Giveaway


Title: Empty Cup
Publication date: November 3, 2014

Mom’s new boyfriend is creepy.

On the night of her seventeenth birthday, Raven finds out he isn’t just creepy, he’s dangerous. He leaves Raven broken and bleeding, but Mom blames her for what happened. She kicks Raven out of the house with nothing but a blanket to protect her from a frigid winter night.




As Raven struggles with the aftermath of the ultimate betrayal, she seeks solace in her imagination and a teacher who seems to understand her situation. She ultimately discovers that her world won’t change if she relies upon someone else to do it. Real change begins within.

My review;

I just finished reading "Empty Cup" and it was the kind of book that makes you stop and think. What could anyone do to change and help with  these problems that some children have to deal with?  This book is a great book for someone to read who helps teens and others deal with these problems. The author is telling the story of what happened to a young girl, named Raven, and how she helps herself through the girl's own eyes. I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book for the purpose of a  review and all opinions a re my own.
