I found this book to be a wonderful read especially because I have a beautiful daughter who is a cutter. I now have a better insight as to what she's going through and feel that I can listen with a 'new ear'. While I will never be able to understand the emotions my daughter is feeling, I can look at what she is doing to herself in a different light and feel that I'll be able to support her even more. Thank you, Amanda, for putting yourself out there and writing this wonderful book!
I only give it 4 stars because at times I thought the sequence of the book was a bit confusing. That being said, given that it is an autobiography it feels as if it stays true to her words and I don't have the perception that someone came in and edited it to make it shiny. It has a nice raw edge to it that I think more autobiographies should have - it makes it real.
An interesting read for a Type A achiever who needs to see that even if things look perfect from the outside, it is not always as it seems.
