“Listen, I don't see how what I do is so different from people who get their tongues pierced. Or their lips. Or their ears, for chrissakes. It's my body.”

The classic heart-felt young adult book is amazing to the very last word. Callie is a sensitive 15-year-old girl who injures herself and feels so ashamed about it that she can't tell anyone. It deals with her mental illness and how she copes with reality. Every word will make your heart skip a beat as she describes her pain. She punishes herself unnecessarily, but never deep enough to die. She just wants to find that relief she desires. It is intriguing, and keeps you turning the pages. Cut is filled with unexpected teenage drama. This is Patricia McCormick's best book yet!
