Years ago I bought the book because I wanted to feel some sort of connection and understanding with someone else that was going through the same sort of thing I was dealing with at the time, even if that someone was fictional. However, this book wasn't what I thought it was going to be. It was very vague and there was basically no character development. Callie's character felt lifeless to me. I felt no connection and reading this book made me feel like the author had no real idea what self-harm is like. There is so much more that could've been done with this book.
