Fast read. Cheryl gives the reader an insight into the life of a survivor of abuse and cutting. The reader is given hope and ways to deal with the abuse and self-destructive behavior. I would suggest this book to anyone who cuts or know someone who cuts. You are not alone. There is help out here and people who care. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 193481332X, Hardcover)

Kendra, fifteen, hasn't felt safe since she began to recall devastating memories of childhood sexual abuse, especially because she still can't remember the most important detail-- her abuser's identity. Frightened, Kendra believes someone is always watching and following her, leaving menacing messages only she understands. If she lets her guard down even for a minute, it could cost Kendra her life. To relieve the pressure, Kendra cuts; aside from her brilliantly expressive artwork, it's her only way of coping. Since her own mother is too self-absorbed to hear her cries for help, Kendra finds support in others instead: from her therapist and her art teacher, from Sandy, the close family friend who encourages her artwork, and from Meghan, the classmate who's becoming a friend and maybe more. But the truth about Kendra's abuse is just waiting to explode, with startling unforeseen consequences. Scars is the unforgettable story of one girl's frightening path to the truth.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:31:02 -0400)

Fifteen-year-old Kendra, a budding artist, has not felt safe since she began to recall devastating memories of childhood sexual abuse, especially since she cannot remember her abuser's identity, and she copes with the pressure by cutting herself.
