Summary

Fifteen-year-old Kendra hasn't felt safe since she began to recall devastating memories of childhood sexual abuse, especially because she still can't remember the most important detail: her abuser's identity. Frightened, Kendra believes someone is always watching and following her, leaving menacing messages only she understands. If she lets her guard down even for a minute, it could cost Kendra her life. To relieve the pressure, Kendra cuts; aside from her brilliantly expressive artwork, it's her only way of coping. Since her own mother is too self-absorbed to hear her cries for help, Kendra finds support in others instead, from her therapist and her art teacher, from Sandy, the close family friend who encourages her artwork, and from Meghan, the classmate who's becoming a friend - and maybe more. But the truth about Kendra's abuse is just waiting to explode, with startling, unforeseen consequences. Scars is the unforgettable story of one girl's frightening path to the truth.

MUST READ!!

I have to admit I am an adult and not a teen. And I read it thinking it was non fiction because I thought I was searching memoirs.
But although I never read non fiction I can honestly say that it is a really riveting book,full of suspense.I couldn't put it down.
The story is so well written with such emphasis on the descriptive images that you can almost touch them.
I listened through an audible book.
So WELL DONE and CONGRATULATIONS to all involved it has been brilliantly written, and enthusiastically and very well read. Thank You.😊

It really resonates

I love this book. As someone who was abused and who still engages in SH because I've never sought therapy, it resonates so clearly. My abuser wasn't my father and I'm not gay so I didn't face those additional challenges but sometimes, through Kendra, it is like Cheryl is writing what I felt - and still do. I want to listen to it again and again.

very interesting read!

this was my first book by Cheryl rainfield. that being said, I didn't really know what to expect. I will tell you that I really like dark things comma so I really enjoyed this book. I appreciated the author's style and the power in her words. As I said before though it is a really dark book so I will say that it could be triggering for some people comma butt it's a very interesting read or make that listen and I will definitely be listening again. Plus on a side note the narrator did a really awesome job with the story as well.

Hooked

This author describes what the main character feels in fabulous detail. The story is full of excitement and wonder. I would definitely read this book again. Thank you to the narrator that gave it her own spice, attitude, and creativity to this book, you can literally imagine the movie in your head thanks to her. She is the best narrator I have heard.

Amazing for her first novel.

For the first book I've heard from her, it's an amazing one. Dark and triggering for some, I'm sure, but, worth it. Well written, and with great narration to boot.
