What was the point?

In A Certain Age by Rebecca Ray? What parent in their right mind would allow a 27 year old to go out with their 14 year old daughter, find out he's actually 31 and still go along with it? The end was shite, never even told us what happened. Did her and Oliver stay together? What the fuck was the point?

    I know a girl who at almost 50 years younger moved to live with this guy (she was 16 at the time). Both her parents seemed to turn a blind eye on it.
    It's sick, but sometimes the parents may not really be in a position to say anything.
    But it can of course be argued that "age is just a number"..

    it made me squirm.
    like the bits where she's cutting herself or where she's getting that guy to hit her. i almost couldnt read it.
    can't remember the end though! it's a bit early!
