Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow
Everyone and I mean everyone should read this book! It is heartbreaking, beautiful, and there is nothing like it out there. The author is extremely genuine and actually struggled with cutting herself, so you know these thoughts are real. Be aware though, it is extremely honest about cutting and mental illness. It is a conversation that must be made but is probably better for more mature teenagers (probably sophomores in high school).
