Waterstones Says

Burning with a ferocious power, Glasgow's unflinching and hugely necessary Young Adult novel chronicles the trials and trauma of 17-year-old Charlie and the legacy of self-harm that she is determined to put behind her.

A heartbreaking, triumphant, funny and hopeful story of one girl's battle with self harm.

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.
