"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Centered around the tragedy of Jackson's death, everyone is asking the question of what happened? The person most important to him and the biggest suspect, Piper, his girlfriend. Piper awakens in a hospital with injuries and no memory of what may have happen to Jackson and piece it together is her her priority. As things slowly start to unfold it's clear that Jackson was not the only victim in the story and that the relationship between he and Piper may not have been as health as it should have been.
Overall, great emotional book that drew me in from page one and had me crying about page 20. Tragic is the best word to describe this book. Jackson and Piper were so in love that it became unhealthy and turned their lives sour. Sadly I've seen this happen and it's horrible, so to read this novel and practically feel the emotions of the couple it becomes real for you too. Jackson's life is to be learned from as well as Piper's, so that teens, and adults too, find love in healthy circumstances not overly dependent self destructive ways. I commend Amber Garza for writing such an emotional book as it touched on a lot of subjects for teens that not many write on. So if you are up for a beautiful tragic read about the pitfalls of unhealthy relationships, bullying and teen suicide all paralleled along side the play of Romeo and Juliet, than definitely read this book and share with those who need this book.

I purchased this book in kindle and now that I finished reading it I'm purchasing the hard copy, too. This author is really talented with bringing characters to life with current issues facing teens, and bringing the reader into the story to where you feel like you are there experiencing it with them. This kept me on the edge of my seat and had enough twists that it really built up the suspense, but yet it wasn't overdone; it was very believable!
Keep up the good work, Amber! I happily anticipate your next novel.
I can't even begin to describe the emotions I felt when reading. I was anxious and uncertain, needing to know what would happen next. Amber always does that--makes me flip page after page, often skipping meals and sleep in order to find out that ending. And this ending is one that will stick with me for a very long time.
Another exquisite novel from Amber, one I highly recommend. Cuts Run Deep will deeply impact you, and you won't be the same after reading it.
The story follows multiple points of views, but mainly Piper and Jackson’s. Piper wakes up in the hospital, not knowing how she ended up there, but finding out that her boyfriend, Jackson, was killed. How could she not remember what happened that night? What fateful events could have led to something so horrific, so painful for everyone involved. It seems that some people might know more than they think, while others are desperately searching for answers, but the truth might be worse than not knowing.
Cuts Run Deep could not have been more appropriate for the title of this book. Ms. Garza writes an extraordinary story that shows us that our actions in one moment of time can spiral into something much bigger and change lives forever. This book is tragically beautiful, but will leave an imprint on your heart and your mind forever.
Piper is an oddball and who could blame her after what she's been through, but Jackson falls deeply in love with her and will stop at nothing to protect her. He loves that she's different from any other girl he's dated.
What do you do when your boyfriend is murdered and you become the number one suspect? Filtering through memories never seemed so difficult, but that's what Piper has to do to prove she couldn't have murdered the only boy that's ever stolen her heart.
Her and Jackson's relationship seemed so perfect, so full of love. It resembled Romeo and Juliet's love that so many envy. In the end, so many people become at fault for something so tragic, not many will talk about.
