I was not at all impressed with this book, at least after the expectations that had been set up for me. It was too short and too shallow. There was only one part I liked, in which the psychologist suggested to the girl that perhaps she cuts herself because she blames herself for all the painful things around her. But even that is cliche, and kind of obvious.

I guess it was a decent story, but the writing was just very average. Oh and the ending was not only stupid, but also anticlimactic and nonsensical. [Possible spoiler below] I mean, she ends the book saying that she wants help - that she wants to get better - but I, at least, was under the impression that by the end of the book she has alraedy IMMENSELY improved from her previous self and probably doesn't even need to live in the rehabilitation center anymore.

I don't remember much of that book. I bought it way back before I even had the desires to cut, and now I'm like "hmm, maybe it would be more helpful" but from what you say, maybe not.

Unrelated, I will finally be mailing your letter out tomorrow. :)
