    I don t view my cutting as a destructive force The physical act keeps me safe from emotional pain that feelsthreatening to me than anything a razor could inflict.

    Cutters Don t Cry is another of those very commonplace YA mental health books that tries to deal with a serious subject and show readers what a person who self harms might be feeling, but unintentionally ends up appearing to glamorize the topic with its poetic quotes and teenage tumblr esque drama I m not hugely into mental health fiction, anyway I preferred The Bell Jar and One Flew Over the Cuckoo s Nest I think Dzidrums is very talented at writing poetic prose and relating to teenagers, bu Cutters Don t Cry is another of those very commonplace YA mental health books that tries to deal with a serious subject and show readers what a person who self harms might be feeling, but unintentionally ends up appearing to glamorize the topic with its poetic quotes and teenage tumblr esque drama I m not hugely into mental health fiction, anyway I preferred The Bell Jar and One Flew Over the Cuckoo s Nest I think Dzidrums is very talented at writing poetic prose and relating to teenagers, but the main character herself was a little boring to me and very judgemental The book had a very abrupt ending, too It leaves a lot of loose ends, and while this can work depending on the story, in Cutters Don t Cry it just seems to drop off with little explanation Its ending wasn t very realistic and just sort of felt like an attempt to wrap up the novel without actually giving a solid ending at all I didn t like Charity at all she seems to not only revel in her mental illness but border on blaming other people for it, as if people who don t cut themselves and aren t suffering as much as her are just in her way

    I just loved Cutters Don t Cry I found Charity to be very real and very relateable, and there were a few times her own story mirrored my own There were times I couldn t stop crying, and Dzidrums did a great job at capturing the range of emotions Charity felt I ve never self harmed but it s so easy to understand why Charity does it And Dzidrums did a wonderful job with showing the downward spiral Charity was in I thought the use of a journal was such a great way for Charity to share her thou I just loved Cutters Don t Cry I found Charity to be very real and very relateable, and there were a few times her own story mirrored my own There were times I couldn t stop crying, and Dzidrums did a great job at capturing the range of emotions Charity felt I ve never self harmed but it s so easy to understand why Charity does it And Dzidrums did a wonderful job with showing the downward spiral Charity was in I thought the use of a journal was such a great way for Charity to share her thoughts and express her feelings Sometimes, you write because speaking can be too hard and scary The journal entries written to her dad were so powerful, and I loved seeing her work through everything Her entries were very honest, and very vivid I also liked that Charity wrote to her dad, who she doesn t remember Almost like writing to him was her way of telling someone what was going on, and to work out her feelings about her dad I connected very much with Charity and her experiences, and I loved that she s 19, in college, and not sure of her future You really see her as someone who s scared to speak up but who eventually realizes that she needs help and is ready to get that help.The only thing I didn t like was that it was really short I would have liked a littleclosure you see she s taking steps in the right direction, but you don t see her several months down the line You also got bits and pieces of her childhood, and I would have likedof that as well But in it s own way, it did work because you got enough of what happened and where she was headed Cutters Don t Cry gets a 5 out of 5 It was so well done, and I really felt like I was Charity at times

    I have read five or six self harm books but Cutters Don t Cry was the first one to help me understand why people do it to their self My older sister has self harmed for as long as I can remember but it wasn t until reading Charity s inner thoughts that my sister s motives finally clicked with me I recommend this book to anybody struggling to understand the thoughts behind a loved one s self harming.

  5. NayDoubleU says:

    Dealing with the same problem of self harm I recommend this to any one who wants to get in the mind of a self harmer There are different reasons for self harming but this book helps a person see that it leads to an addiction A need And alot of people don t understand that I wish they would So hopefully this book will do the trick Great read So real and relatable.

  6. Friallie Lien says:

    Cutters Don t Cry is the best book I ve read about cutting Charity s range of emotions were described spot on and made my cry several times I also loved the honest get to the point writing It was a fascinating read but wish the book was longer.

  7. Kirsten Binder says:

    I felt that it was an okay book I think the author really nailed the emotions and why she was cutting, but I feel the ending was rushed and a little awkward Overall an okay book but I have read better books about SH

  8. Mel says:

    This book hit me in the gut I lost count of all the times I cried At times I felt like Charity was writing for me because I am still trying to find my voice I love this book.

  9. Willow says:

    I liked how Charity wasn t cutting because she had a secret tragedy in her past and she was a depressed college student and did not know why she was depressed This book is very honest without a big gimmick tragedy behind the feelings It is for my 2nd favorite self harm story Look at my profile picture to see my 1st favorite.

    This book is an amazing and very accurate view at the life of someone who cuts The book portrays cutting as a lifestyle and not just as a phase, which is a huge misconception today Through the perspective of Charity, we are able to explore her rationale for cutting herself and the emotions that have led her to the lifestyle We read her journey through journal entries that are written as letters to her dad I found this book to be a wonderful representation of why some cutters cut There were This book is an amazing and very accurate view at the life of someone who cuts The book portrays cutting as a lifestyle and not just as a phase, which is a huge misconception today Through the perspective of Charity, we are able to explore her rationale for cutting herself and the emotions that have led her to the lifestyle We read her journey through journal entries that are written as letters to her dad I found this book to be a wonderful representation of why some cutters cut There were parts that felt a little rushed though but the book was still absolutely amazing I would recommend this book for teachers, parents, and children alike I think it could serve as a great book to learn from It was also a very easy read It took me only a couple hours, collectively, to read it I m scared I don t want to die, but I m not sure I want to live either I don t cut myself because I m trying to kill myself I started cutting because it stripped away my confusion and pain It comforted me This little section made the entire book real for me Until this point, I enjoyed the book but it was just a book This short paragraph, in my opinion, took the entire book to a whole new level
