Scars readers left comments in back of library book


A woman I’ve met walking Petal in the mornings told me today that she just got Scars out of the library and read it, found it moving & important (and she couldn’t stop thinking about my arm), AND that teens had written, in the back of the library copy, “I love this book” & “me too.” That felt so good to hear! (beaming) I wish I could see the copy–but just hearing about it is a delight. And so is having a neighbor read my book and find it moving and helpful! She’s going to read Hunted next. (grinning)

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.

    You talk about your insight with facing challenges of abuse bullying self-harm and same sex attraction. In your book stained I think that each of these challenges you put in it. How Charlene is fat and her dad is horrible to her.you put in bullying and how Charlene wanted to fit in that she hurt her own friend. You also added that she later found that she liked girls. Because Sarah was already bullied she didn’t want to hang out with Nick because he was also on the bottom of the food chain. Nick being to scared to ask Sarah out and then losing her before he can helped him a lot once she got back. He was stronger, braver, and determined. Sarah being kidnapped gave her the chance to overcome her port-wine stain on her check. Having overcome this she became stronger, braver, she became diamond. No. She uncovered it. You’ve shown that anyone can overcome bullying or even a port-wine stain. Thank you for Stained it is a wonderful book. I hope I can here from you on email. I have one word for this book. Powerful.

    • Autumn, I’m very glad you enjoyed STAINED so much and got so much out of it. Sarah is definitely strong and brave, and I think so many of us are, too. Thank you for your kind words. (smiling at you)
