I'm not sure about her, but I had been raped and molested at a young age, and books became my escape from the harsh reality of life.

DEAR ABBY: I saved a poem that I read in your column years ago, and now for the life of me, I can't find it.

My daughter is popular at school, but she was caught cheating on an exam, and I want to give it to her. -- NANCY IN NEW JERSEY
