Girl in pieces

Girl in pieces Glasgow k

Charlotte Davis is in pieces. At seventeen she s already lost more than most people do in a lifetime. But she s learned how to forget. The broken glass washes away the sorrow until there is nothing but calm. You don t have to think about your father and the river. Your best friend, who is gone forever. Or your mother, who has nothing left to give you.
Every new scar hardens Charlie s heart just a little more, yet it still hurts so much. It hurts enough to not care anymore, which is sometimes what has to happen before you can find your way back from the edge.
A deeply moving portrait of a girl in a world that owes her nothing, and has taken so much, and the journey she undergoes to put herself back together. Kathleen Glasgow's debut is heartbreakingly real and unflinchingly honest. It s a story you won t be able to look away from.
"Equal parts keen-eyed empathy, stark candor, and terrible beauty. This book is why we read stories to experience what it's like to survive the unsurvivable; to find light in the darkest night."-Jeff Zentner, author of "The Serpent King"
"Raw, visceral, and starkly beautiful, with writing that is at times transcendent in its brilliance. . . . An unforgettable story of trauma and resilience."--Kerry Kletter, author of "The First Time She Drowned"
"A breathtakingly written book about pain and hard-won healing . . . I want every girl to read "Girl In Pieces.""-Kara Thomas, author of "The Darkest Corners
" A"Girl, Interrupted"for a new generation .The story of the mad girl is ultimately a story about being a girl in a mad world, how it breaks us into pieces and how we glue ourselves back together." Melissa Febos, author of"Whip Smart"and "Abandon Me"
Dark, frank, and tender, "Girl in Pieces" keeps the reader electrified for its entire journey. You re so uncertain if Charlie will heal, so fully immerse"d" in hoping she does. Michelle Wildgen, author of "Bread and Butter "and "You re Not You
