This is a very intense book about a guy who hit his girl friend and had to go to court for it. The judge ordered him to keep a journal, so he wrote about how and why he hit his girlfriend. This book varies between entries from his journal and his life right now. I think this book was alright, but the topic is simultaneously depressing and, for lack of a better term, nauseating. Don't read it unprepared for some real messed up stuff.
