Book Review: Girl in Pieces
Updated: Sep 23, 2022
By: Haley Troha
Girl in Pieces, by Kathleen Glasgow, is one of the best and most powerful books I have ever read. In a deeply moving story, Glasgow paints a picture of loss, love, trauma, and the dangers of self-hate. Charlie Davis, unhoused at almost eighteen year old, has a history of losing things: her father, her mother’s love, her best friend. Put into a mental hospital after going over the edge, she struggles to find a meaning in the things she’s been through. Girl in Pieces follows the long road to her recovery, a moving and emotional story that will have your attention all the way through.
*WARNING* Girl in Pieces has a lot of emotional and traumatic triggers. Please look up the triggers, and do not read anything that you don’t feel comfortable with.
