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 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.

My thoughts: I was expecting this book to take a couple of subjects and really working through them, but instead, this book wound up throwing hardship after hardship at Charlotte. Written like a diary, the style gives the reader a chance to know Charlotte, but it also inhibits some development.
I recommend this book for an older young adult audience, due to the subjects dealt within the story.
I received this book from blogging for books on exchange for my honest review.
