I absolutely loved the scenes where Kendra was painting. Rainfield has a very engaging, readable, and relatable style of storytelling that will draw both adults and teens to her novels.

I would have preferred if there had been a little more cyeryl terms of character development. She isn’t cutting to kill herself- she’s cutting because she has no other way of letting out the intense pain she feels. Shannon O’Donnell March 11, at Caitlyn, a telepath in a world where having any paranormal power at all can kill her, must decide between saving herself or saving the world.

I loved the characters, and wished read more Rainfiwld to Win 21 Books! I highly, highly recommend it even if parts are rough to read.

Kendra is fifteen and she’s recovered memories of sexual abuse as a child. And I want to shake and shout to someone that it truly COULD have been if there weren’t so many moments where I wanted to throw it across the room. It could prove to be a life-saver for other young victims of abuse and self-harm. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.


Kendra was so special to me, partially because she was so much like me in certain aspects. She still has problems on the road ahead of her. Jun 06, babyhippoface rated it it was ok Shelves: Explanation and justification without promotion.

I don’t hide the fact that I’m a rape victim – or that I used to be a self-mutilator still am, depending on who you are and how you define SM – I cope now with tattoos and body piercing because it’s safer than slashing up my arms or legs.

Scars by Cheryl Rainfield

Her dad’s job seems to be falling apart, and money for Kendra’s therapy may be cut. Hell to the yah. She scard an editing course at George Brown College in that covered proofreading, copy editing, and substantive editing. My first thought…I have zcars check that out! This is a must read. And everyone can use that. It is also very telling in terms of why people cut themselves. It’s one worth making room for on your shelves for sure.

I couldn’t put it down.

Her voice is sad beautiful and vulnerable. Kendra’s pain and fear came alive through her artwork and I loved seeing that side of her – the side I had hoped to uncover while reading about her journey. I’m glad I did, even though this isn’t a book I particularly loved. Oh and how Kendra uses her artwork to express herself? Caitlyn is on the run from government troopers. Some of the abuse scenes are very graphic and very disturbing.

Each facet stands out, shining as brightly as its counterpart without either overtaking the other. Her writing is honest and real. Thankfully, I finally picked up this amazing story of facing and overcoming your fears, of accepting yourself, of having strenght to love again and being loved.

I expected her to remain in denial even after what she saw, but she seemed to handle everything just fine, and even embraced her daughter’s lesbian girlfriend as one of the family just a few short weeks later. This isn’t a session where a kid is getting nasty notes from their ex-bestie.

Kendra’s relationship with Meghan also is very well done. Dealing with it wasn’t easy.
