** spoiler alert ** After my last review, this is kind of going to be hard to swallow, but... this book is not as bad as I remembered. It'll never be my favourite, but, props to Julia Hoban for writing on such a touchy subject. Even if it was full of comma splices. It wasn't great, but... it's not abysmal either. Characters were decent, writing was fine, plot was fine... there's just a tiny something holding it back from striking this one out of the park for me. Maybe it's the suject, I don't know.
It's not of the same quality as books I love, but... I'm not going to hate on it for that.

Daisy Dino! What you said about how the charecters where unrelalistic because
Of how they talked because no teenagers talk like that ummm 10 and I talk like that so yeaaaaa that point is kinda lame

1luvbooks "Unrelalistic?" And also it was 1 point of many. If you talk like that, cool, but I've never met any teens who talk like they did.

Kelsi You completley missed what the author was trying to convey.

Jenna I completely agree with this review. I got half way through this book when the characters just became too annoying.

1luvbooks @ Kelsi. I understand this book is supposed to be about a cutter's journey to redemption. And I completely agree with that premise- but I don't believe you should completely rely on someone else to heal from something as serious as cutting. Getting help is crucial- but the true healing has to come from yourself- not your boyfriend, which is (as it seemed to me) what Julia Hoban was implying.
