This was actually a really good book, I think I might buy this one.

This book is about a girl who struggles with self-hatred and self-injury. She secretly cuts herself with razors; when her secret is discovered when she is victim of a sadistic sexual prank. Kids in school label her “cutterslut” and “she had sliced her arms to ribbons, but the badness remained, staining her insides like cancer. She had gouged her belly until it was a mess of meat and blood, but she still couldn’t breathe.” I think only a very sick person would create a story like this. But worse, why would librarians/teachers push this kind of literature to minor children—most certainly behind their parents backs?!

I really liked the first one because the premise of the series is so unique, but this one followed the formula of the first so closely, that I was kind of bored. I do like the author's willingness to confront the darker side of teen life.

A FANTASTIC book!! even better than the first one (Hunger), which I didn't think was possible... Jackie Morse Kessler is a fantastic author and I look forward to seeing more of her work :)
