Girl in Pieces
Emotionally charged read
I cannot put this book down. It's not usually my type of read but I was recommended by a friend. It does feature some raw topics but you find yourself root... READ MORE

“I don't feel sad. For just now, I don't feel scared. I feel, for right now, well, kind of triumphant.”
A raw, heavy depiction of self harm and all the feelings that go along with it. To my surprise this book was a realistic depiction. I really like how it di... READ MORE
Laura  at Waterstones Cardiff


A heartbreaking, triumphant, funny and hopeful story of one girl's battle with self harm.

Charlie 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 it through cutting; the pain washes out the sorrow until there is nothing but calm. She doesn't have to think about her father or what happened under the bridge. Her best friend, Ellis, who is gone forever. Or the mother who has nothing left to give her. Kicked out of a special treatment center when her insurance runs out, Charlie finds herself in the bright and wild landscape of Tucson, Arizona, where she begins the unthinkable: the long journey of putting herself back together.

Kathleen Glasgow is also the author of How to Make Friends with the Dark and You'd be Home Now.
