Comments Right Where It Hurts

  • Laura Morrigan

    A gentle and unjudgmental book about self harm from the point of view of the boy who loves her. Slade is in love with a sensitive girl who deals with her pushy parents and self doubts and fragility by hurting herself. Her problem soon starts to spiral out of control.Simply and honestly written, this story is suitable for a teen audience, and is, in my opinion, a must-read. It isn't a guide for how to help people in this situation, but I think it opens up dialogue into this issue and it's existen [...]

    I got this book from a library and it came from the Stack. I ponder that such a good book is put in the stack. I understand that books that are not borrowed are pushed to the stack, but then they will get read even less. This is a really good book that every preadolescent should read. It treats of serious subjects, but with a lot of humour and is very well written. I want to read more by the same author

    Un sujet délicat très bien traité, le narrateur masculin change des habituelles héroïnes. Je n'ai pas apprécié chacune de ses réactions, mais il arrive à soutenir Mallory et rien que pour ça il remonte dans mon estime. Le choix d'être spectateur du mal de Mallory est surprenant et apporte de la nouveauté. Malgré le vocabulaire pas très actuel, c'est un très bon roman.Ma Chronique : luxnbooks.wordpress/2015/

    C'est un livre très plaisant à lire, à conseiller aux adolescents pour aborder le thème de l'auto-mutilation et aux parents qui poussent leurs enfants à la perfection, sans se rendre compte qu'ils amènent leurs enfants à de telles extrémités (souvent des filles, souvent dans des milieux aisés où la réussite professionnelle est très importante pour le 'paraître').Ma note : 18/20Mon avis complet sur : lespassionsdeviedefun

    Probably one of the better YA novels I was forced to read in school. Tells the story of the unlikely friendship between the snobby rich girl and the new in town poor boy and how he helps her deal with self harming.
