Waterstones Says

From the bestselling author of Girl in Pieces comes another young adult novel that tackles contentious themes and modern teen life with sensitivity and authenticity, as a dutiful sibling is forced to confront what kind of person she really is.

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.

The quiet one, the obedient one, the reliable one. Emmy has spent her life being told exactly who she is. Not strong-willed like her beautiful sister Maddie and not in rehab like her wild brother Joey. But when a tragic accident changes life in her small town forever, can Emmy keep up the act?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Impossibly moving.' - Vanity Fair

'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

However, I didn't... More
