In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox is a meme created by The Story Siren. It is a list of what books you have received over the previous week, either for review, from the library, from the bookstore, etc.

Scars by Cheryl Rainfeld - Kendra, fifteen, hasn't felt safe since she began to recall devastating memories of childhood sexual abuse, especially because she still can't remember the most important detail-- her abuser's identity. To relieve the pressure, Kendra cuts; aside from her brilliantly expressive artwork, it's her only way of coping. But the truth about Kendra's abuse is just waiting to explode, with startling unforeseen consequences. Scars is the unforgettable story of one girl's frightening path to the truth
This Gorgeous Game by Donna Freitas - Olivia Peters is over the moon when her literary idol, the celebrated novelist and muchadored local priest Mark D. Brendan, offers to become her personal writing mentor. But when Father Mark’s enthusiasm for Olivia’s prose develops into something more, Olivia’s emotions quickly shift from wonder to confusion to despair. Exactly what game is Father Mark playing, and how on earth can she get out of it? This remarkable novel about overcoming the isolation that stems from victimization is powerful, luminous, and impossible to put down.

Might be a depressing week for me.
What did you get?

Scars looks brilliant but is probably a very difficult read. I'll be interested to see what you think and will be looking for your review:)

Melissa said...

Great books this week! I had a WoW for This Gorgeous Game a while back, and I'm still dying to read it! Scars, I hear, is very powerful. Enjoy! :)
