Item Description...
While confined to a mental hospital, thirteen-year-old Callie slowly comes to understand some of the reasons behind her self-mutilation, and gradually starts to get better.

Publishers Description
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.

Well written, but lacking... something.  Aug 12, 2008
This was a good book in the way that it was well written. She writes with ease that makes your eyes fly over the words of the page at a good rate, and it doesn't clutter itself up with pretentious words. I liked the main character Callie, but her reasons for cutting do not seem justified. I also would have liked to see a little bit more information about the other girls in the hospital with her. It seemed like one could go on so many different ways with them. For a first novel, not bad. For me spending my money on it, I'm not impressed.
Okay, but not the best  May 29, 2008
This book's popularity is mainly based on the fact it was a semi-good novel about self-harm when it has become more common, and alientated teenagers flock to anything that will make them feel understood. Any parents should know that this book does NOT glorify self harm in any way, and if your kid believes that this book does so, they are too impressionable and a little stupid. This book is narrated by a self-harmer and since it is in the voice of a self-harmer she is obviously addicted to the act and fantasizes about hurting herself and thinks it will make her feel better because that is HOW self harmers think. This is extremely similar to how a drug addict would talk about their drug of choice and how they think it will make them feel better. If you have a very impressionable, naive kid don't let them read it. But if you have a smart kid that is aware of mental illnesses and twisted thought processes this is fine. For teens interested in this, it's ok. It's def blown out of proportion and like I said it's popular because it was published at the right time when the demand was high. If you are a self-harmer it might be good to relate to, but you can tell that the the woman writing it never actually experienced self-harm herself. Crosses by Shelley Stoher is better, but nearly unheard of because it was written years ago when self-harm was still rare. The Luckiest Girl in the World by Steven Levenkron is also pretty good.
Insightful  May 27, 2008
As it's written from a 'cutter's' perspective, I was hoping for a little more insight. But it was interesting and taught me a lot about some of the deep psychological problems girls can get into.
Cuts to the bone.  May 20, 2008
Cut by Patricia McCormick is a quick and brilliant book that deals with a teenage girl named Callie who cuts herself whenever she feels depressed or overwhelmed. I read this book about six years ago and I still think about this harrowing piece of teen literature since. The main character refuses to talk to her therapist since she cannot cut, the only power she has left is her refusal to communicate. Callie is a very bright, sensitive girl but her pain is so deep-rooted and that's why she is a cutter. Great book for young girls to read, I highly recommend this page turner, enjoy!
An ok take on cutting  Apr 27, 2008
This book was an interesting read. It held my interest, and was entertaining. It wasn't a bad book. I liked the story line. The only thing that made me give this book three stars instead of five is that I think people who do cut could write a more truthful story. This story is not based on first hand experience. Having gone through cutting, I know that a person who knows firsthand how a "cutter" feels could write a more in depth and captivating story. This, of course, is not the author's fault. A good book by a person who did their research. I liked it.
