I really enjoyed the book Cut. i offtened Cut myself and don'tr really know of too many other people that cut.
So this book made me relize some of the consaquenses that cutting can cause.i still cut but not as offend. this book has opened my eyes a little, if you like this book then you should try reading the book Go Ask Alice its by an anyomous person its a god book that deals with a girla and what happened during her life when she diid drugs.

I loved this book. We have to read one book per month in my Language Arts class, and I couldn't put this one down. It is definetly one of my favorites! I used to cut myself, but this gave me a new perspective on it. I decided to start helping myself, like Callie. I absolutley L-O-V-E this book.

I loved the book Cut. I read it in one night. My grandma, cousin and I went to Barnes and Noble and it was the only book that really caught my attention. Not to be corny or anything but it "spoke" to me. I saw the title and knew I had to read it. I am a cutter as well and though my situation doesn't match completely with Callie's. I have never been to a treatment facility and no one else knows I cut. The only time I ever cut is when things get so bad I don't know what else to do. I've cut with objects that people probably wouldn't believe were possible to cut with. I've bitten of the plastic ends of bobby pins and used the shart edges, and sewing needles, thumb tacks... You name it. But I'm happy to say that after this book it gives me a new perspective on things and since I have contacted a therapist and I start seeing him 2 weeks from tomorrow... :o)

my favorite scene on the book CUT is when Callie went to the bathroom and cut herself on the tissue holder.

I loved this book, I couldn't put it down and so read it in one sitting. It really hit home with me and it hits the issue right on the head. Like Callie, I struggle with cutting. Though my story is different, and I have never been to therapy/a facility- the feelings, the wandering mind, not only the urge but the need to cut.. they are all the same. Knowing that you can't talk about it without sounding completely insane and having no one who truely understands what it is your doing or why, it just becomes a natural thing to disguise it and try to camoflauge yourself in your surroundings. This book cracked me open in a way no one else has been able to. I really appreciate this book and hope to see and read more books by Patricia. She has a great understanding of the issues surrounding this mental disorder.

i think this book has been my favorite book i have read in high school. It has mjany issues that deal with abuse illnesess. This is a great book that would bring out to many young teens today how difficult it is when someone has mental illness. they need someone to understand them by helping them get better.
