Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fifteen-year-old Callie isn't speaking to anybody, not even her therapist at Sea Pines, the "residential treatment facility" where her parents and doctor sent her after discovering that she cuts herself. As her story unfolds, Callie reluctantly becomes involved with the "guests" at Sea Pines--other young women struggling with problems of their own, Although their "issues" are different from hers, Callie is drawn into the group, finds her voice, and, gradually, confronts the family trauma that triggered her destructive behavior. Cut is a compelling and compassionate look at a young woman's struggle to overcome the impulses that led her to inflict harm on herself.

Synopsis:

Callie's parents and doctors have placed her in a "residential treatment facility" after discovering she obsessively cuts herself. But when the threat of expulsion precipitates another cutting incident that frightens her, Callie finally begins her healing process.

As my opinion, I would say that this novel is a great story about a girl who suffers and tries to get better with cutting herself. But I also think that the book needs more action in it. I recommend this to teens or adults becuase they would probably learn a lesson.
