Summary:

When Anna's choir teacher finds out she cuts herself, her parents are informed and she's sent to the school counselor. Anna's problems begin to worsen as the secret of her self-mutilation is revealed to the people she cares most about. As she begins a long and difficult healing process, Anna is forced to conquer the very memories that she cuts to make disappear. The only thing that seems to help is music--but choir carries its own anxiety and loneliness for Anna. As her story unfolds, the truth about what's happened and the way in which she's dealt with it begs the ever-present question: is the damage too strong to heal?

I think--but I'm not sure--that you do that by just giving 5 out of 5 stars.

thanks so much for wanting to pick this as one of your favorites! unforunately, i don't think you can have favorite novels (usually a little button at the top with a star says "save as favorite" or something like that, but I can't find that for any books). But thanks so much anyway!

This is really good, like you know exactly how it feels (do you?). But you just put so much I don't know. It's just great I really like it.

thanks for your comments :). they really mean a lot. about the paragraphing: it's really weird, but when I submitted it, it was all broken up, but when it got published on the site, they made it all one paragraph. it's a compatibility thing, i think... anyway, thanks for letting me know, and for your nice comments.

This is very good!! The only thing I would suggest to yoou about editing is maybe to break it into smaller paragraphs for better flow and easier reading. Other than that, I was really impressed by how amazing the writing is. My heart literally jumped when I read the last couple of lines, and I mean that as a compliment to your writing.
