Description
Fans of Girl, Interrupted, Thirteen Reasons Why, and All the Bright Places will love this New York Times bestseller. " A haunting, beautiful, and necessary book that will stay with you long after you've read the last page. " -- Nicola Yoon , #1 New York Times bestselling author of Everything, Everything and The Sun Is Also a Star 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. " Girl, Interrupted meets Speak . "--Refinery29.com "A dark yet powerful read."-- Paste Magazine "One of the most affecting novels we have read."--Goop.com " Breathtaking and beautifully written ."-- Bustle " Intimate and gritty. "-- The Irish Times And don't miss Kathleen Glasgow's newest novel How to Make Friends with the Dark , which Karen M. McManus, the New York Times bestselling author of One of Us Is Lying , calls "rare and powerful."
