About The Book

A deeply moving portrait of one girl's journey from self-harm to self-acceptance from bestselling author, Kathleen Glasgow

‘A haunting, beautiful and necessary book.’ Nicola Yoon, author of Everything, Everything

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

‘Girl, Interrupted meets Speak.’ Refinery29

‘Glasgow’s poetic writing brings Charlie’s mind to life as she tries to find a path to recovery.’ Independent
