Scars (YA)

Scars (YA)

Kendra is in therapy trying to deal with the sexual abuse she suffered as a young child.  She has repressed the face of her abuser and her therapist is trying to draw that out of her.  Kendra is feeling overwhelming pressure and begins to cut herself to release some of it.  Kendra's mother does not understand why Kendra is withdrawn and Kendra does not understand why her mother cannot support her.  Kendra makes a new friend in Megan and with the help of Carolyn, her therapist, she begins to make some breakthroughs. . . which apparently is making someone very worried as someone, whom Kendra believes to be her abuser, is following her and threatening her.  This was a decent YA realistic fiction read.
