This book reminds me so much of Laurie Halse Anderson's book Speak, but in a different way. Both the characters are alike: they're silent and reserved after something tragic happens and to get away from it all they both do something they enjoy: in this book it's cutting herself.

i did a book report on this book in 10th grade.i love reading young adult drama/fictions...drugs,mental problems,good gone bad ...etc
Story about a girls life and how she dealt with her hardships, resulting in self mutilation. Very sad and descriptive story about what it is to be a cutter and if there is any hope to get away from it.
Callie cuts herself. Never too deep, never enough to die.But enough to feel the pain. Enough to feel the scream inside.
Now she's at Sea Pines, a "residential treatment facility" filled with girls struggling with problems of their own. Callie doesn't want to have anything to do with them. She won't even speak.
But Callie can only stay silent for so long...
I can't actually remember much in vivid detail about this book anymore, since it was so long ago, but I do recall quite liking and thinking she did a very good job with the story.
