* ''Literature/{{GONE}}'': This series has Orc, whose stepfather hammered a electric drill through a vein in his wrist, Bug, who was beaten pretty badly by his mum's boyfriend and apparently had to go to boarding school for "his own safety" and Dekka Talent, who was slapped twice across the face and disowned by her father because of her sexuality. A case could also be made for Diana Ladris, who was implied to be "perved on" by her mum's boyfriends when she was in the shower aged 12. But that's a entirely different form of abuse altogether.

* ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'': Gabe, Percy's step-father verbally and physically abuses him for years, and it's revealed Percy's mom only married him because his human stench protected Percy from monsters. Discovering this - and realizing Gabe's started abusing him mom too - finally makes Percy crack.

** It's made worse if you grasp HOW this irrational fear started: the unexpected death of her husband and Eddie contracting pertussis/whooping cough as a very young child, when pertussis is at its highest risk of being fatal. Describing how she sat by his bed, night after night, listening to Eddie struggle to breath and wondering if she was going to have to bury her son as well...that's how it starts. The rest is human failing. Years later, when Eddie is middle-aged, he's married to a woman who treats him almost exactly the same way.

*Prudence from "Literature/TheStonesAreHatching". Actually an abusive older sister, but she still raised Phelim, destroying his self esteem by constantly insulting him, and [[spoiler:lied to him about his father; she claimed he had died when she actually had him committed to a lunatic asylum for being a 'dreamer'.]].
