Book Review: Cut Me Loose by Leah Vincent

Cut Me Loose by Leah Vincent is a brutal book.  And I mean that in the best way.

Vincent actually does cut, herself, many times.  She engages in other self destructive behavior and aches from being rejected by her ultra orthodox family after being caught at 16 sending letters to a boy. Breaking free after being rejected and having essentially no practical skills or knowledge of the world, Vincent eventually soars.  She even gets accepted into Harvard.

This book is very painful to read as we walk with Vincent through her quest.  Her parents coldly cut her off and refuse to be at all forgiving.  People take advantage of her youth and innocence.  She can't forgive herself.

This book is so worth reading and is beautifully written.
