Book Description:

Blank verse poetry meets gothic teenage angst driven fantasy in Nineteen Cuts. Written from the point-of-view of the story's heroine, Thorn, the book's romanticized, histrionic descriptions and insights put the reader smack dab inside the mind of a fatalistic nineteen-year-old who isn't quite a "girl" anymore. Her story is symbolic and universally relevant in that we must all come to an impasse - a "death of SELF" - in order to find out what it means to truly live.

Snippet from the book:

"My name is Thorn and I was dead once. My mind, my heart, and my spirit were as lifeless as a pond of bleach. So I carved into my slender wrists with a double-edged blade. Nineteen cuts in all, representing nineteen soul-destroying years I should have never been forced to endure. But I am proof that not even death can stop the bleeding.

I am very dead — purging every last drop of crimson fluid from my veins has that effect — but I am also still very alive. I'm just not...human anymore.

Suicide wasn't the end. It was just the little nap I took at the end of a shitty life. I got the luxury of waking up again. And that's when the fun began. The Freak Show. I was purged of the romantic delusion that death would heal me, because the beautiful and perverted Brehnn are coming for me. The cruel beings will gift me a nightmare only a diseased mind could fathom. And if they ever catch me, after they've had their fun, I won't be the guest at their dinner table. I'll be the entrée."
