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.
