Girl In Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Mental Health, Mental Illness
Expected publication: August 30th 2016 by Delacorte PressCharlotte Davis is in pieces. At seventeen she’s already lost more than most people lose in a lifetime. But she’s learned how to forget. The thick glass of a mason jar cuts deep, and the pain 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.
This was a pretty tough book to read. Seeing everything that this character was going through it was hard not to care for her. At some point I wanted to yell at her some of at some of her life choices. She seems to find herself with the wrong type of people who can make things worse rather then better for her. Shes young and still learning and needed someone to be there. Someone responsible who can help guide her in the right direction. It was hard seeing her the way she started and seeing her get better but once she got out then things started to go down more and it was just though to read. It was hard seeing her trying to improve herself and things just get shot down an nothing seemed to go her way. When it came to that ending I loved how real it was. Things just didn't suddently turn out perfect and her life is all great. Overall I really loved this book and found it hard to put down. It was dark, emotional and I really found myself hooked from the very start. I recommend you lovely readers to check it out.
