Stitches: A Memoir by David Small.


Title: Dead to the World.
Author: Charlaine Harris.
Genre: Non-fiction, coming-of-age, memoir, cancer, mental health, teen.
Country: U.S.
Language: English.
Publication Date: September 8, 2009.
Summary: Stitches tells the story of a 14-year-old boy who awakes one day from a supposedly harmless operation to discover that he has been transformed into a virtual mute―a vocal cord removed and his throat slashed and stitched together like a bloody boot. From horror to hope, Small proceeds to graphically portray an almost unbelievable descent into adolescent hell and the difficult road to physical, emotional, and artistic recovery.

My rating: 6.5/10
