Ashley Fox If you are very disturbed by images and thoughts of razor blades, I would stay away from this book. The protagonist thinks a lot about cutting and specific instances of her cutting her own skin are described in detail. I wouldn't say that it was written in a gory way, but it is graphic.
Susan's Reviews I was having bad dreams while I read this book. Its true what they say: your subconscious can't always tell if you are actually experiencing a terrible event, or just reading about it. My subconscious was definitely working overtime to diffuse the sinister atmosphere and Camille's very dark thoughts. Very well written, but I don't think I will read more of this genre for a bit!
Sara I wouldn't say it is terribly graphic but, as Jayna said, the main character is a recovering cutter and there are several flashbacks concerning the topic and a few instances where she thinks about doing it again and, while none of those scenes are overly descriptive, if it bothers you to the degree that it seems to I would steer clear. I loved this book but it's not one I'd recommend to anyone with a phobia of blades or razors just because the repeated topic could bring images or thoughts to mind without explicitly meaning to do so.
Jayna I read it a while ago and I've read a few hundred books since, but the main character is a cutter. And there are mutilated victims. I can't remember if they actually describe a bloody/gory scene, but it is graphic.
Jan Definitely not for you. I was quite disturbed by some of the descriptions and acts; not to mention the very realistic portrayal of a classic "mean girl" and a self-centered mother.
Russell It's got kids getting murdered and a protagonist who used to slice words into her skin. But, hey, you can handle it i'm sure.
