    Well, I was going to order Scars for the kindle (would have been my first electronic book) but I just needed that paper to hold! Instead I got it in hard copy from Amazon and I have been meaning to write you to let you know how powerful I thought it was. I am a clinical social worker, though I have been on hiatus from my therapy practice for 2 1/2 years–parenting, writing etc.–gearing up to return soon. Scars convinced me to go back to working with teens, made me realize that I miss them–difficult as the work could be. Many of the kids I saw were cutting for various reasons; all felt misunderstood in some way and needed a release, a distracting, concrete pain. I wish I could have given them this book to read. When I go back, I’ll be glad to know I’ve got your book to share, as well as your site.

    Recently a friend told me her niece was struggling–trying to make her parents accept her since she’d come out to them. She had cut and was looking for support. Though I don’t know the girl, I was glad to have your info to give her aunt.

    Lisa, I understand wanting and liking paper books! I love them, too. (Though I also love ebooks.) I’m glad you got a copy of SCARS–and so very glad you found it powerful! Thank you for letting me know. (beaming) And wow–I love, and am honored, that SCARS encouraged you to go back to working with teens! Teens really need good advocates, and it sounds like you are. I’m glad you’ll be able to give Scars to the teens who need it. And very glad you were able to tell a friend a resource to help her and the parents deal with her niece’s cutting. That’s the kind of thing I love hearing about! That people get to understand cutting more, especially people who need to. So thank you for letting me know; what you wrote felt so good to read! (smiling at you)
