Girl in Pieces

29236380Charlotte 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. The broken glass washes away the sorrow until there is nothing but calm. You don’t have to think about your father and the river. Your best friend, who is gone forever. Or your mother, who has nothing left to give you.

Every new scar hardens Charlie’s heart just a little more, yet it still hurts so much. It hurts enough to not care anymore, which is sometimes what has to happen before you can find your way back from the edge.

I at first wasn't to sure about this book, did I really want to read a book about cutting? Did I really want to read a book about so many depressing things? The answer: no. But I read it anyways and I am so glad I did. This book goes over so many hard places of mental illness and self harm showing you the hard reality of it. That for me is always a hard thing to read, I don't do self harm but so many people do and I want to understand them better. This wont be the first or the last book I read about this or a like subject.
I received this book for review through blogging for books.
