From the Publisher
"A tingle arced across my scalp. The floor tipped up at me and my body spiraled away. Then I was on the ceiling looking down, waiting to see what would happen next."
Callie cuts herself. Never too deep, never enough to die. But enough to feel the pain. Enough to feel the scream inside.
Now she's at Sea Pines, a "residential treatment facility" filled with girls struggling with problems of their own. Callie doesn't want to have anything to do with them. She doesn't want to have anything to do with anyone. She won't even speak.
But Callie can only stay silent for so long...

"Riveting and hopeful, sweet, heartbreaking." - The Boston Globe
"A thoughtful look at teenage mental illness and recovery." - Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"Like E. L. Konigsburg's Silent to the Bone and Laurie Halse Anderson's Speak, Cut is another authentic sounding novel in which elective mutism plays a part, this time with humor making the pain of adolescence gone awry more bearable." - Booklist
