Book Description

Updated and expanded edition, April 2014.
In this shockingly candid memoir, award-winning writer Lisa Verde exposes the truth about her personal journey with self mutilation. She details the years of childhood sexual abuse, humiliation, and neglect that finally led to the spontaneous revelation that cutting and burning herself would keep her tethered to reality.

In a boldly convention-defying analysis, Verde asserts that burning and cutting herself from age 11 to 19 was a strong self-administered therapy that ultimately saved her sanity and her life.

As she writes: "I wanted to die, but more than that, I wanted to not die."

This work of non-fiction represents the very intimate struggle of one girl's journey into womanhood and wellness, through the personal struggle for courage and sanity.

Approximately 12,500 words, or 45-60 minutes of reading time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! April 10, 2014
By Jessica

Ms Lisa, this is such a deeply moving read. It resonates with me as I am going through a lot of the same things.. I have tried to get professional help, however it does not seem to help me more than cutting does. I hope that I will come through in the same ways that you did, and hope that it is soon. Thank you for writing this, I am glad to know at least one person sees how healing it can be....
I do wish it was longer, I got sucked in and read this in a day!

4.0 out of 5 stars ONE-session read to get you thinking. March 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Absolutely tragically beautiful. Almost all who read these books seek a way to get comfort and escape and being in the mind of another as well as in this book will give you a sense of relief, anger, happiness, and frustration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relatable in every way February 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
honestly doesn't matter who you are, anyone should take their time to read such difficult times one goes through for years. I really really loved how she got through with herself and became stable. the beginning of the story I immediately related to what was happening to her; throughout her mistakes and carelessness, I knew exactly what she felt. I appreciate her and how she took the time to write about this.

It wasn't bad at all and since it was only 89 cents I don't feel ripped off or anything, but I really wish it had been longer. I just feel as though it isn't really complete. Read more
