Review: Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow

 

Charlotte 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 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 Charl

ie’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.

 

Charlie Davis is a seventeen year old who has been through hell and back, she has experienced the pain of a hundred lifetimes and the only way she can forget and numb her way though it lays in in the form of broken glass, wrapped in linen inside a tin box. She’s trying to get off a hanging cliff that’s been ruining her life over and over again.

I truly loved this book, it’s really fucking angelic, Kathleen Glasgow’s writing style is truly beautiful and poetic while keeping it very raw and the characters feel very real. Although I do have to say my favorite character has to be Blue, with her bad teeth, talking to Silent Sue, she’s also been through a ton but still tries to help people, specially Charlie, I just love her so much it’s insane.

Girl in Pieces gave me real Girl, Interrupted vibes. I will say that it wasn’t an emotional rollercoaster as I expected it to be, it was a little monotone throughout, not really boring, it just changed at the end when I became an emotonal wreck and cried for about three hours which made this book one of my faves.

To sum it all up, I loved this book, as I said, really fucking angelic, the only thing I didn’t love was that if I had an emotional chart of the book, most of it would just be a straight lineuntil the end, but I still liked it a lot. Before reading this book, I looked up some reviews and some of them said that people found it boring, which I understand, we can’t expect everyone to love every book, but I’ll say that if you’re interested, this book is worth a try you won’t regret.

  1. Side note: You’ll have to teach me how to arrange things like you have. I’ve tried putting a picture on the left and having text on the side and it’s a hot mess lol. I love books that bring out such strong feelings. If you can make me cry, you truly are a great author. Great review!!
