Patricia McCormick has taken three years to write this short book, and I took five nights reading this book and I must say that this book was an excellent title. Sadly, many teenagers are living with depression and cutting themself, but thankfully there are many solutions to heal the pain. This book could be one of those solutions. With every page is a girl someone could relate to, but you could learn from her.
Callie cuts herself, and now she's at Sea Pines or what she calls "Sick Minds" refusing to talk. Instead, she listens to people in her surroundings who are just like her. They are hurt, and they don't want to be trapped. They know why they are here, but they'll have to learn how to fix that.
I recommend this, WELL WRITTEN, book for teenagers, cutters, children, mothers, and teachers. Learn from Callie and enjoy this book like I did. Take heed, people, there is help.

Entertaining read, but a little generic. Ms. McCormick doesn't really get into the details/emotions/rationales/etc for being a cutter. It's an interesting story about a girl in a group home/hospital coming to terms with her problems but not really an in depth view into her mindset.

Patricia McCormick wrote a very interesting novel on a girl who cuts herself. Callie, a young adult, blames herself for her families problems. Her brother Sam had really bad asthma, which makes her mother worried and always busy. Her dad has to work more so he can get more money to pay for everything. Callie lives at Sea Pines, or as the girls there call it "Sick Minds" rehabilatation center. At first Callie doesn't talk and doesn't care about cutting herself, but over time Callie starts talking to other people and another girl who cuts herself comes and tries to keep her down, but with the help of the other girls their and her pyschologist, Callie finally realizes that the problems at home are not her fault and finally wants to get better. Callie becomes closer to her dad and the rest of her family. Patricia's book was an easy which I would recommend because it shows the true meaning of family and how you shouldn't be so hard on yourself about problems.

Cut is an awsome book that identifies the true feelings that may go through a girls mind that cuts herself. Callie is a troubled teenaged girl that keeps to herself when she has to go to Sea Pines. When she cuts herself she explains how it releases all anger, pain, and other emotions bodled inside of her. It releases them in a way she almost can't explain. It is a wonderful book and I recomend it to anyone that wants to read a book with a great deal of understanding what a teenaged girl really goes through.

it just kept going on and on. I kept waiting for it to get interesting but it just never got off the ground. As a former long-time cutter, i was seriously disappointed.p

An OK read, but does not accurately portray the true mind of a cutter. If you're looking for a book that offers a more realistic and in depth look into the world of mental health facilities, depression, and self-mutilation, then I would recommend "A Bright Red Scream" (very graphic, not for kids). However, if you would like a story that's more on the fictitious side- this is your book.

I cut for a while. Im 14 now you shouldnt be going through this at such a young age. Im in therapy now. There is a better way for you. You have to think of bettef ways to cope. Me ? I listen to music or write to stop myself. If you just tell yourself that you are better than that & believe it, you can do it.

Callie seems like a normal fifteen year old, but she is hiding a dark secret: her addiction to self-injury. A substitute nurse sees the scars from where Callie cut herself and Callie is sent to a residential treatment facility called Sea Pines. At Sea Pines, or "Sick Minds" as the "guests" have nicknamed it, there are girls with food disorders and drug addictions, but no one, until Amanda comes, self-injures like Callie. Callie has selective mutism and refuses to talk at all. Callie can only stay silent for so long. I have read this book multiple times. The first time I read it, I looked at Callie from her therapist's point of view. The next few times I read the book looking from Callie's point of view. She is very easy to relate to. The writing didn't seem as though it was coming from a fifteen year old though.In conclusion, Cut is about a teenage girl overcoming the addictive trials that is self-injury. I highly recommend this book.Cut is a great book, but the writing could have been more accurate to a fifteen year old's thoughts.

This novel let's people who not only have experienced this sort of thing, but gives insight and help to people who know someone who's doing this to themselves. Cut is a definite read.

Overall, this book was okay. I am sixteen years old. I think that it has a good message. And I am proud of the main character, Callie. However, I think I would like the book better if I was younger. It just all depends on how old your are.

this book was great when i was in the seventh grade. i re-read it this year as a ninth grader and i'm not impressed. so when considering this book take into consideration your age, interests, and own personal experiences.

Cut goes through the point of view story of Callie in her stay at Sea Pines but to her its 'sick minds.' She's sent there after being discovered that she cuts herself. While there she doesn't say a word but starts to slowly come out of her shell, gets to know the other girls and confronts her troubles including her father. What I liked was the writing style and how Callie begun talking again and the ending was great and give you a hint that she really wants to stop cutting. Read this at least once and decide whether you think its a good book or not but yes it is a sad thing when it comes to certain hard to talk about issues.

It touches u more if youve been through wut callie has. Ive never been to a mental hospital for my anorexia/cutting/suicide but almost. I still feel like i need to. This stuff isnt funny and its NOT a joke. Teens and other people are killing themselves everyday and one of them was my best friend. It sucks. I dont get how peoplw think this stuff isnt important.

Well this was a sad, a little hard to read at times. But still a good read. And the writing was what made the book. A quick read but at the same time, you wonder will Callie get better.
