Item description for Tattooing Violet by R.T. Mitchell...

A riveting story about a boy and his reclusive sister, too damaged or terrified of their abusive father to tell anyone -- until their new step-brother tattoos their stories on their backs. As those pictures take on lives of their own, the events behind them can no longer be denied... R. T. Mitchell's language flows like a rollercoaster on greased tracks heading for a brick wall. It will hit you over the head with a sledgehammer and you'll say thank you and ask for more.

Reviews - What do customers think about Tattooing Violet?

Marked for life  Feb 19, 2008
R.T Mitchell has taken the issue of child abuse and presented it in a unique and imaginative way. The reader is presented with a dysfunctional family living in a small town whose' inhabitants don't like "outsiders". The town members vocalize their dislike of racial differences and skin art but turn a blind eye toward child abuse and neglect. When one child brings to the surface of another childs' skin all the atrocities that have occurred in their home, the community finally has no choice but to acknowledge the truth. By presenting this subject through the guise of tattooing it is more likely that teenagers and young adults who are dealing with these issues are more likely to pick up the book, ingest the meaning and make the first step toward their problems and work toward a resolution.
powerful  Oct 1, 2007
This seeming fantasy tale is dead on emotionally. It depicts the tremendous powerlessness and terror that abused children endure and the need for a sense of control ... even if through fantasy. Parent's treatment of their children is truly carried on their backs for the rest of their lives and is often played out repeatedly in their own lives. The story shows different ways that children respond to abuse: sometimes with passivity ... sometimes with rage... occasionally with mastery of the trauma and with some recovery. The end is surprising, powerful and satisfying.
This is an excellent first novel for this author. I look forward to his next book!
