Review: Cut by Patricia McCormick

CutCut by Patricia McCormick

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Told in first person, a fictional tale about a girl named Callie in a residential treatment facility, Sea Pines for self-mutilation. Ms. McCormick writes the internal dialogue, the interactions and personal responses of the character to not just her family, but her therapist, but also her peers in the program. The reactions and actions of cause and effect are easily examplified through those peers and family members. For such a serious subject matter I found this book a little campy, trying to end on a good note and be an easy read, not truly touching on the harder subjects that is truly encountered in self mutilation. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone trying to understand this disorder or at all.
