My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I found ‘Girl in Pieces’ such a powerful, eye-opening story and I’m so glad that Kathleen Glasgow decided to write it. I think it’s so important for us to hear more of these kinds of voices, to become more aware and develop a greater understanding of mental illness. Beautifully written, with real, gritty characters, ‘Girl in Pieces’ tells the story of main protagonist Charlotte Davis. Charlotte or Charlie is a young girl whose life seems to be breaking apart. As each heartbreaking, terrible thing happens to her, she seems to get a little bit smaller and feel a little bit more insignificant. It seems inevitable that nothing will change for her, but through her art and the kindness of friends Charlie is able to start putting herself back together.
