When coping is cutting, healing can’t come.
When Krystal’s parents separate, she is thrust into a new home and a new school. Forced to live in the man’ house her mother had an affair with, she is ashamed. Alone and suffering in silence, she deals with the pain the only way she knows how – with a broken piece of glass.
At school, she makes one friend, Em, who invites her to volunteer with her family. Together, they serve soup and work alongside a unique crew at the local homeless shelter. When she sees a boy from her school in the food line, he begs her to keep his secret.
Everyone has secrets. She can't risk telling anyone hers because her scars control her life.

Memoirs of a girl who loves God
Beautifully written. The characters draw you in and you can feel their emotions. It has a deep undertone dealing with a self harming behavior but even deeper is the evolving relationship of a teenage girl with God. This book made me smile and made me cry in a very good way. It is a wonderful read for teens through adult.
