    Callie has a huge problem, she was sent to Sea Pines, a mental health institution for this problem, this problem nearly killed her, and this problem will forever leave marks on her body. Callie suffers from a mental illness that makes her want to hurt herself. She barely talks, so much so that the other girls even gave her the nickname S.T., Silent Treatment. It almost looks as if Callie will never get better. But, she finally starts talking taking her first steps toward recovery. This daunting book will leave you rattled. The story does and will not give you the warm fuzzies, but, it does give an important message in never giving up, no matter how easy it is. Callie shows how no matter how difficult, you need to keep on fighting. This is such an important message , which is why I recommend this book. Even though Callie could easily give up, she didn't and she shows the reader there's more to life than giving up. I recommend this book to kids in the middle school/high school. I believe (if you can) you should read this book ASAP, for it gives an incredible perspective on those who have a mental illness. (Also please check with your parents before reading this book, it may contain some language or descriptions not appropriate for some age levels.)

      It looks like a good book, but it also sounds depressing.

        I loved this book very much, it was very emotional and gave me a point of view to what it might feel like to be berried deep in depression. it shows how she felt throughout the story and how she grew into it.
