about this item
Kendra hasn't felt safe since devastating memories of childhood sexual abuse began surfacing, especially because she still can't remember the most important detail-her abuser’s identity. Someone isalways watching Kendra, following her and leaving menacing messages, and making her fear for her life. Kendra cuts to relieve the pressure: it’s how she copes, along with her brilliant expressive artwork. Her mother is tooself-absorbed to listen, so Kendra finds support elsewhere: from her therapist and her art teacher, from Sandy a family friend, and from Meghan, a friend and maybe more. Will they ever learn the truth about Kendra’s terriblesecret? Scars is the story of one one girl’s frightening path to the truth.
Fifteen-year-old Kendra, a budding artist, has not felt safe since she began to recall devastating memories of childhood sexual abuse, especially since she cannot remember her abuser's identity, and she copes with the pressure by cutting herself.
