    • I actually read this book approximately two years ago, while I was undergoing the problem presented in this book What I had hoped to find was perhaps a level of understanding, or just some any meaning But in all honestly, I finished it about two hours later, consumed by irritation and aggravation at the injustice of this book on a scale of many different levels As I ve stated, I am one of the people who has undergone the emotions and mentality in order to become so desensitised as to perform act [...]


    • I m going to skip over the summary of the story as many other reviewers have already taken care of that and explain my reasoning behind a single star rating.First of all, I am a cutter have been for 10 years and will always identify as such whether or not I m actively self injuring who grew up with a neglectful mother who suffers from untreated bipolar disorder In my opinion, based on my experiences and the reasons behind my cutting, I will say that a good 98% of this book is either a heavily gl [...]


    • You know, it s hard to review a book like this one I bought this book while I was going through some tough situations and they recommended it to me, saying it would help me with my own cutting issues And, I m happy to say, it did.This book was no Love story, it was no inspirational story, not a memoir, not dramatic It was just real I was incredibly surprised when I heard that the author has never self harmed, I really was, it was like reading my own story Callie is a cutter and she s interned in [...]


    • I read that the author researched for 3 years before writing this book Now is that violating GR s terms since I mentioned the author Heck it s to the point where I don t know how to review a book any I guess since I m giving it 2 stars which is not horrible it s ok If she did I just don t get it The characters completely felt lifeless to me Maybe if the book was longer I ve read shorter books though that got their point across better It s a sensitive subject that s handled here and I have a very [...]

    • I remember reading this book when I was eleven or so, and I found it really interesting The way it s written the main character speaks in a way that she addresses You yourself, as if you re her counselor sort of just sucks you in, and you sort of find yourself in Callie s head, seeing things the way she sees them.I read this book back when I was a normal little kid, too The subject matter didn t really bother me then I guess, because it s really, really a fascinating book.

    • I just finished reading this about 10 minutes ago, and I wanted to get this review written while my emotions were still fresh I have to admit though, it s kind of hard to have many emotions with this book I picked it up at The Goodwill after a friend told me she read it and liked it It s a pretty short read, so I picked it up Sometimes the shortest books are the most delightful reads This one however, wasn t It s a story about this girl named Callie, who has some kind of connection with running.

    • What a great book I have read a lot of mental illness books this year and this one was something I could totally relate to Which allowed me to be invested in Callie s story and her recovery.Callie is a cutter She blames herself for her parents distance For her mom being a nervous wreak, for her brother being sick Callie has no way of expressing her fear, her sadness and anger and so she cuts herself To numb the pain I may not have been a cutter but I was a pincher I would pinch the inside of my [...]


    • Wow this book is such a package for being such a short read The main protaginist is Callie a fifteen year old girl who suffers from an addiction that makes her cut herself The story focuses on the time she spends at the Sea Pines Sick Minds Treatment Center and how she recovers from her problem.As someone who knows what it feels like to experience this type of self injury, this book really hindered my ability to really enjoy the book for what it s worth I would give the book a 3.5, or some score [...]


    • I can really relate to calli, the main character in the book She is fighting a mental illness and so do I It s like this book was about me, besides the cutting, this book was pretty good


    • I had heard a lot about this book before I read it, even before I had heard of booktube and equivalent sites One half of my dual major is psychology, so I was hoping for a good explanation on the mental health topics covered in it also coming from a perspective of going through some of the things in this book as well, and I wanted a book to relate to in some way shape or form I heard about some of the author s statements on why she wrote them, but since I heard so much about this small volume, I [...]

    • i m a sucker for the second person, so i think that i enjoyed the book than i would have otherwise i m especially a sucker for second person when relating to a therapist, so this was kind of tailored for me that said, i think it could have been also, it didn t make a ton of sense most people don t get shipped to resident facilities the first time they are really caught cutting the reasoning behind her cutting was vague and, i thought, a little trite when she was so clearly capable of then aga [...]


    • The general idea of this book was a good one I, myself struggle with the problem in this book The fact that the author had to research for this book makes me angry I feel as if since she didn t have the problem herself she shouldn t have written it.I heard a lot of good things about this book but, when I read it I got very frustrated First off, you cannot cut yourself with a credit card That is very unrealistic Along with the fact that in mental hospitals they do not allow their patients to use [...]


    • I just finished this right before bed and i can t decide what rating to give it Maybe a high 3 I liked how it showed an inner look at mental illness and self destruction I think it would help lots of people understand how hard it is and maybe have respect for those who self harm I loved the writing and Callie Those who self harm don t do it for attention As the book showed they do it to let out inner feelings that they are trying to cope with I ve been clean for a year and a half I m very proud [...]



    • Well, there was some good stuff and some bad stuff Good interesting characters particularly fellow patients at Sea Pines , Callie s life story is relatively original, perspective is interesting, at some point becomes hard to put down, good ending also, I m a sucker for books written in the second person Bad vague, and somewhat unrealistic For example, the fact that she was in Sea Pines in the first place was just not true to real life Believe me you just do not get shipped off to a mental health [...]


    • Books like this are often read by people who are suffering from the same pain as the main character and maybe in some cases it is comforting or cathartic to read about a similar situation But even if that is the case I still think it s difficult to identify with the main character Callie has some problems with depression, granted But she is attention seeking in her silent treatment behavior and the progress she makes in the facility sounds superficial.But I may be too close to the issue to judge [...]

    • A few years ago, I tried to explain the life of a cutter to a friend I tried to explain the reasoning of a cutter and desperation they feel but he was really confused and totally didn t get it He didn t understand why they would do it, what they get out of it, why they can t just stop and they aren t crazy or suicidal This book puts all that into words with Callie s story This book needs to be read by so many, especially those that cut, that they know they are not alone and they can get help and [...]

    • DNF at around 50% I just really didn t like this book and I had a lot of problems with it More in depth reasons throughout reviews 1.5 stars basically 1 star I threw in the extra half story mainly for the hell of it of my reason behind later on Then I place the blade next to the skin on my palm A tingle arced across my scalp The flood tipped up at me and my body spiraled away Then I was on the ceiling looking down, waiting to see what would happen next What happened next was that a perfect, str [...]


    • I actually read Cut a couple of years ago around the time when I first began reading YA However, when I was asked to partake in a promotion for it, I decided to give it another read, as I did not remember much about it Amazingly enough, Patricia McCormick s Cut was even spectacular than I remembered It seriously took my breath away with its realistic and raw portrayal of a teen dealing with a cutting problem For Callie, life hasn t been all roses and peaches lately She is currently residing at [...]
