a book in review!

Brief Summary:

Fans of Girl, Interrupted, Thirteen Reasons Why, and All the Bright Places will love the New York Times bestselling novel Girl in Pieces.
"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
   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.


 This book was on my to be read list for quite some time so when I saw it was on sale for nook $1.99 (same price for kindle!) I downloaded it. Charlie's story is heavy, so heavy at times that you will need a breather. I like novels that have a dark place and Girl in Pieces is just that. But it makes you think, the characters you meet throughout the book all could be people you know. It shows you everyone and anyone can go through stuff and you may not even know it. This book brings to light a very dark topic no one ever really talks about, but should. I appericated how the author doesn't tip toe around the root of Charlie's problems. I recommend this 4 star book to anyone you liked My Heart and Other Black Holes or Thirteen Reasons Why, xo!
