A heartbreaking, triumphant, funny and hopeful story of one girl’s battle with self harm.
Charlie Davis is in pieces. At seventeen,Â she’s already lost more than most people lose in a lifetime. But she’s learned how to forget it through cutting; the painÂ washes out the sorrow until there is nothing but calm. SheÂ doesn’tÂ have to think about herÂ father or what happened under theÂ bridge. HerÂ best friend, Ellis, who is gone forever. Or theÂ mother who has nothingÂ left to give her. Kicked out of a special treatment center when her insurance runs out, Charlie finds herself in the bright and wildÂ landscape of Tucson, Arizona, where she begins the unthinkable: the long journey of putting herself back together.
Kathleen Glasgow is also the author ofÂ How to Make Friends with the DarkÂ and You’d be Home Now
