Girl In Pieces Pdf Book is a Contemporary Young Adult novel by Kathleen Glasgow that talks about how badly scarred a young girl’s life is by circumstances surrounding her and her journey to finding her way back, just before she falls off the edge.
Girl in Pieces Summary
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 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 book is a haunting story of a young woman named Charlie who has suffered through an incredible number of terrible events, and her attempts to navigate the real world while also trying to heal. I devoured this book; I read it in a day, hardly putting it down, because even though the subject matter is extremely intense and somewhat personal, it’s enthralling. I cried a number of times, which may not sound like a good thing but the writing is just so good that you feel at times as though you are Charlie, and you feel what she feels. TW for rape, suicide, self-harm, drug/alcohol abuse.
5.0 out of 5 stars Dark, yet Brilliant

“I’m choosing my next momentous.”
Charlotte wakes up in a mental health facility in the beginning of this book, so scarred (literally and metaphorically) that she is unable to speak. She observes a cast of characters that help her reflect about the tragedies that attack the human spirit.
Eventually, Charlie leaves the facility and begins life coping with the events that have damaged her AND her family members and friends who have so many issues and horrors of their own.
There are many obstacles in Charlie’s path as she begins the process of dealing with the darkness in life. I enjoyed her moments of clarity and the chapters of random, perfect lengths, mimicking the variety of Charlotte’s moods. My favorite moment is when Charlie gets her first apartment in Phoenix and she delights in the stillness and ownership of this accomplishment, even though she has no bed and is sleeping on the floor and her backpack is her pillow.
Charlie then gets to address her demons, and the reader is taken on a wild ride as we meet and re-meet the many people who have impacted her life.
Written with a lovely mix of brevity and gorgeous description, Girl in Pieces was a delightful yet haunting read. Perfect for the high school audience, and as a more mature companion to All the Bright Places or My Heart and Other Black Holes.
5.0 out of 5 stars Dark subject matter, beautifully written

This is one of those books that I literally could not put down once I got started. Kathleen Glasgow shows us a raw and unflinching look inside of the world of those who self-harm. The subject matter is dark but the writing itself is beautiful and Charlie’s story is so compelling. This is one of those books that’s so important 1) because if you know someone who self-harms, it gives you an idea of what exactly they’re going through so that you can hopefully help them through it, and 2) most importantly, it lets those who self-harm know that they’re not alone. Truly a powerful read.
