Publisher's Summary

Fifteen-year-old Callie isn't speaking to anybody, not even her therapist at Sea Pines, the "residential treatment facility" where her parents and doctor sent her after discovering that she cuts herself. As her story unfolds, Callie reluctantly becomes involved with the "guests" at Sea Pines: other Young women struggling with problems of their own. Although their "issues" are different from hers, Callie is drawn into the group, finds her voice, and, gradually, confronts the family trauma that triggered her destructive behavior.

Cut is a compelling and compassionate look at a young woman's struggle to overcome the impulses that led her to inflict harm on herself.

Critic Reviews

"In this extraordinary first novel, Patricia McCormick gives us a painful glimpse into adolescent mental illness...[that] is sensitive and wise. (AudioFile)
"[Clea] Lewis imbues her reading with the cynicism and pain of the book's troubled 15-year-old protagonist, Callie." (Publishers Weekly)
"Actress Clea Lewis does an excellent job of portraying the different characters with her voice inflections. Listeners are drawn into the girls' despair." (School Library Journal)

Very good.

I liked the book

What about Clea Lewis’s performance did you like?

Good..although I've never really had a problem with narrators. Not sure I'm just not picky or havent heard a bad one.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

My new favourite book!!

If anyone if going through a hard time—whether it's self injury, eating disorders, addiction, anything really—I believe this story should be the first step of the road to recovery. The story is so realistic to me, and I feel that anyone can mirror it to find success. Good luck!

GREAT BOOK!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to a friend suited to the theme and topic of the book. The audio quality was quite good, and the story was good too.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that it followed all roots of the main character's (Callie) issues. We saw her get put in an unideal situation and she tried (after a while) to make the best of it.

Which character – as performed by Clea Lewis – was your favourite?

Sydney :)

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book made me neither extremely laugh or cry, it did get my mind thinking. I did have a tear and a giggle here and there.

Any additional comments?

Enjoy the book!
