I think the story did have potential.

I needed that insight, I needed to know why someone would do that to their self. I took this book slowly and absorbed every detail of the story. Even though I am not a cutter myself, I understand the concept and have friends who indulge in it. First Kiss by Dirnty reviews After getting David to take his anger out on her and blame her for murdering their parents, Willow sees no other option but to kill herself.
