McCormick, Patricia. Cut. New York: Scholastic, 2000.
Callie is a cutter: in order to avoid other issues in her life, she chooses to cut herself. She has been sent to a residential treatment facility, but she is choosing not to speak, not to cooperate, not to heal. Eventually Callie finds her voice and makes a choice for healing.
This is a short book, and a good book, but not an easy book to read. Again, as a former English teacher, I would place this book on my classroom shelf, if I had a classroom or a shelf.
