Just looking at Katie Roskova, you'd think she had it all: she was pretty, popular, an A-student at an exclusive private school, and on her way to becoming a champion figure skater. But there was another Katie, the one she hid from the world, who was having trouble dealing with the mounting pressures of her young life. And it was this Katie who, with no other means of expression available to her, reacted to her overbearing mother, her absent father, her unforgiving schedule, and her oblivious classmates by turning her self-doubt into self-hatred. And into self-mutilation. In his previous novel, The Best Little Girl in the World, Steven Levenkron brought insight, expertise, and sensitivity to the painful subject of anorexia nervosa. Now he applies these same talents to demystifying a condition that is just as heartbreaking, and becoming more common everyday. Through his depiction of Katie's self-mutilating behavior, she is called "a cutter" by her peers, and her triumphant road to recovery, he offers a compelling profile of a young girl in trouble, and much-needed hope to the growing numbers who suffer from this shocking syndrome.

There are so many people in this world...they all have a story that would put each us to awe if only we cared...I invite every one that is a "Me" or "I" person to let your edges ruffle a little and get into their world with them...it may even improve the quality of your life.

It's funny that I'm a junior at UCLA but still read young adult novels along with everything else. However, some really great books have been written for pre-teens and adolescents, and this is one of them. Though a relatively quick read, it holds your interest and leaves you wanting to know more right up until the very end (and even then some!) I'd recommend it to anyone.

A book for a younger audience

I am/was a cutter myself, so I can relate to alot of the stuff Katie goes through... It's true that not all SI's dissociate, or are teenage women, but it's the most common thing... Dissociation IS a psychotic state, altough most cutters use this method as a way of coping with extreme feelings... I totally relate to the bright, perfect smile, always happy, best student and mini-adult stereotype, that ppl don't expect to have such a way of coping, the way she was extremely careful at first, but then she finds herself less and less careful and even make a few attempts to make ppl notice what she's doing.. A really nice book, and i love the fact that instead of writing the usual "cutters are social rejects, lacking of goals, cut themselves as a way of seeking attention" kinda of lie, it tells you the bare truth: it's a coping mechanism!!
Absolutely 5 stars!!

Though this was a novel, I belive Dr.Levenkron made it easier to understand why some suffer from self destructive behaviours.
Steven Levenkron is quick to capitalize on the disease of the week, wanting to be the first to feed his own ego by exploiting a serious disorder. As a novel, this book is a disaster. The characters are one-dimensional (bad mother, good teacher) and the "evil" of the mother is simply unbelievable. The "hero" of the book is really the kindly patient therapist - obviously Levenkron's conception of himself. I am a self-injurer in my 40's, and I'd like to point out that not all self-injurers are young, pretty, lost girls. But the poor little girl seems a character Levenkron is drawn to - which makes me wonder if he treats his own patients with such paternal condescension. Also, the young pretty girl book is a lot more commercially viable, and it's hard to read this book without feeling that Levenkron had one eye on the bottom line and the round of talk shows such a book could generate. Levenkron presents a simple answer to the reason for his character's cutting - simple and obvious, when in fact, the causes of cutting are extremely complicated and rarely fit into a tidy little explanation. But a tidy explanation suits what seems to be Levenkron's primary need - to show what a wonderful therapist he is. This attitude also carries over quite strongly into his self-serving non-fiction book, "Cutting." The problem of self-mutilation is being brought out into the open more and more, and there are several good books on the subject. This is not one of them.
