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.

She also never talks. After her mom found out she was cutting her wrists, she was sent to a place for people who are, Physicaly hurting themselves, Anorexic and other illnesses. After a month or two she finds ways to cut herself while she is there... And she begins t...more

This book Cut has a interesting story line. In the book you saw just how kids with "problems" are like.
Cut is about a 13 year old girl named Callie, who likes to cut herself. Never to deep, but just enough for her to feel the pain. Callie's parents sent her to a residential treatment facility to try to get her to stop cutting herself. The only problem is that Callie won't talk. Not until another girl che...more
I've reviewed Cut before but I reread it with a fresh mind after having read so many novels that deal with tough issues like mental health, suicide and depression. Cut, is particularly painful in both senses of the word. Something about cutting makes me feel weak and a little faint. I look at my wrists and the thin pale skin there and the blue veins there and k...more
that said, i think it could have been more. 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 capabl...more

Review by Alisa Hoerth
The cover of the book intrigued me because if you look at the cover it describes about cutting. Then, you immediately see the cut marks through the title. The book Cut is based on teens trying to find the easy way to deal with their problems. Callie is a 15 year old girl with a huge addiction to cutting herself. Never too deep and never enough to die, but enough to feel the pain.
Callie seems like a normal teenage girl. She runs in track and is very g...more
