'Kathleen Glasgow expands our hearts and invites in a little more humanity.' Val Emmich, author of Dear Evan Hansen

'An unflinching tale of addiction.' Amy Beashel, author of The Sky Is Mine

'Raw, honest and overflowing with feelings.' Erin Hahn, author of You'd Be Mine

From the New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces and How to Make Friends with the Dark comes a breathtaking contemporary YA about addiction, family and finding your voice.

Emmy is the good one. Not strong-willed like her beautiful older sister Maddie and not difficult like her brother Joey. She takes up as little space as possible. When Joey returns from rehab, her parents ask her to act as his guardian. She's also expected to keep on top of her grades and hold everything together after the tragic events of that summer. The only person who makes her feel seen is her secret lover Gage, but no one can find out about that. How long can Emmy keep up her careful balancing act before it comes crashing down?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'As beautiful as it is raw, You'd Be Home Now is an unflinching tale of addiction. Vivid with fear and resplendent with truth, Kathleen Glasgow's stories will always break your heart, but so too will they give you the hope to rebuild it.'

-- Amy Beashel, author of The Sky Is Mine

'Raw, honest, and over-flowing with feelings, You'd Be Home Now does the real work of healing and acceptance unlike anything I've ever experienced on the page. Once again, Glasgow brings her readers through it with her special brand of care interspersed between layers of sparkling prose. Emory and her devotion to her brother, Joey, will stick with me for a very long time.'

-- Erin Hahn, author of You'd Be Mine

'A love story like you've never seen. In her gripping tale of an addict-adjacent teen and the fragile ecosystem she inhabits, Kathleen Glasgow expands our hearts and invites in a little more humanity.'

-- Val Emmich, author of Dear Evan Hansen

'With heartbreaking honesty and breathtaking beauty, Kathleen Glasgow renders the invisible faces of addiction with rare humanity, giving a voice to the often-forgotten constellation of struggles reflected in the lives and love of those impacted by another's addiction.'

-- Amber Smith, author of The Way I Used to Be

'Through this compassionate sibling relationship, Kathleen Glasgow not only nails what it's like to love someone with an addiction but humanises the struggle of a teenage drug addict. Emory and Joey's story as devoted sister and brother will tear you apart and put you back together again.'

-- Hayley Krischer, author of Something Happened to Ali Greenleaf
'I absolutely loved it. An insightful and powerful story about the impact of addiction on young people and their families, filled with gut-wrenching emotion and hope.' -- Anna Day, author of The Fandom

'Stunningly written, this is a sad and real and beautiful story. I couldn't put it down.'

-- Perdita Cargill, author of Take Two

'An evocative, soaring exploration of family, friendship, and the many lives that encompass a small town. With a cast of beautifully drawn characters, You'd Be Home Now is all about losing everything and finding yourself. A welcome affirmation that pain can make way for beauty and hope. Nobody fills a story with emotion quite like Kathleen Glasgow.'

-- Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of The Girls Are All So Nice Here

Praise for Kathleen Glasgow:

'Breathtaking and heartbreaking, I loved it with all my heart.' Jennifer Niven, author of All the Bright Places
