When I wrote SCARS, I wrote the book I needed as a teen and could never find. I drew on my abuse and trauma experience to write SCARS and bring an insider perspective; like Kendra, I'm a sexual abuse survivor, I used self-harm (and art) to cope, and I'm queer. I know how alone I felt, and how blamed--and when you're in pain, feeling alone and blamed can make the pain so much worse.
I still get reader letters every week telling me how SCARS helped readers know they're not alone; feel understood for the very first time; talk about their own self-harm, sexual abuse, or being queer; get help; stop cutting or want to stop; and a few have even told me that it helped them not want to kill themselves. I also hear from people who've never had any of those experiences before, who let me know that they understand self-harm now (and aren't so judgmental about it any more). I am grateful for all the reader letters that come in, and I try to answer them all (though it can take me a while).
It's my own arm on the cover of SCARS.
