Editorial Reviews

"Monique Polak handles this rarely addressed topic with sensitivity while offering teens a lot of useful information on this disease ... the novel is well written and engaging and offers several positive messages to its readers."

— CM Magazine: Canadian Review of Materials

"This book is not only a great read, but it would be bibliotherapy for a self-mutilating teen."
