"Self mutilation has sometimes been described as the “new anorexia” affecting 1% of the American population. 1 in 10 adolescents have hurt themselves at least once, be it: cutting, burning, pins, etc. most common of which is cutting.
Girls growing up in today’s world are under tremendous pressures;  magazines telling them they aren’t thin enough, standardized tests telling them they aren’t smart enough or social rankings that say they aren’t popular enough.
This book is based on a true life story. It is about growing up and taking control of your life. It is about finding strength within yourself, and knowing that you don’t have to live with depression and self-mutilation.
Drue is a teenager who falls in love for the first time in high school; she goes through the struggles of the average American female teenager: first crushes, heartbreak, SATs, alcohol, insecurities and the attempt to find out who she is and who she wants to be. After a gruelling experience she comes out strong and is still ‘dancing in the rain’.
The author tells her story - with the hope that those who are discouraged and feel alone will realise that they are not, that they've got what it takes to pull through and as this book says; 'Everything is okay in the end, if it's not okay then it's not the end'
