This is my favorite book. Cutting is a big issue and this book is so eye opening and will change your life. I am not a cutter but this book has showed me life through a cutter's eyes and it makes me want to reach out and help cutter's. I love it how when Ruth's friend found out she was cutting she stayed at Ruth's side and did not leave Ruth in her time of need.
This book is so true! Of all the books I have read about self-harm, this has the most impact.. I read this book while I was cutting, and it felt as if the book were written about me. For people who have experienced this girl's struggles, this book just drags you up from below the surface, showing you the reality of it all in a way that maybe you did not understand before.
