Description

A few glimmers of hope appear in the form of friendships and kindnesses, but this narrative is chiefly a first-person experience of the void left behind when the most important person in a young woman’s life is suddenly gone. The story of an awful, universe-gone-mad-mistake, and one girl’s emotional battle for clarity and forgiveness. From there you're whisked away and shoved into the foster system, placed in the charge of a harsh caregiver who locks and inventories their food to a lovable hippy who is really doing the best they can with a girl ripped apart from the inside out, and finally placed under the care of a long lost sister barely older than Tiger.

She made sure I had manners, greeted people, said my farewells, did my chores and handled all my responsibilities. Not only were we dealing with the tragic, unexpected death of a family member, we then had to deal with a homicide trial and far too much publicity.There were only two of them, so without the other parent, Tiger became the property of state, and not only does she grive her mother, but her life also completely changed. since i barely heard anyone talk about the novel either, i also pretty much had no expectations and that was ideal, to be quite honest. A rare and powerful novel, How to Make Friends with the Dark dives deep into the heart of grief and healing with honesty, empathy, and grace.

Especially in books and films, foster homes and other caring place for children tend to be vilified. A brilliant, honest, raw look at what it really means to lose someone essential and make grudging peace with what is gained in the exchange.I love the way Kathleen Glasgow uses words to create scenarios, situations, charakters, feelings and a whole world. I’d say when it was at its best, it was most of the first half and the second foster home she was in. I want to break things so the world looks like how I feel inside: splintered into a million bloody and sharp pieces. Overall, I thought it was fine, even really good at times, but because of the writing, I just really couldn't get into it.

I'm the kind of person who emotionally connects to literally everything in a book, especially of this genre, so that was a very strange thing for me. Luckily, I have enough unread books in my house to last a least five years and so I am going to to look at social-distancing as a gift of time. You spend a lot of time stuck in Tiger's mind and her thoughts, for the first part of the book, can be quite cyclical and repetitive and a bit like "get on with it. She is also the co-author of New York Times bestselling teen mysteries The Agathas and The Night in Question. There were several times when Tiger just didn't address certain things that seemed like pretty pressing issues, which honestly contributed to my general dislike of her.It was such an honest depiction of grief and several individuals journey as they are forced to navigate it.

In Kathryn Glasgow's How to Make Friends with the Dark, 16-year-old Tiger learns that her mother is dead, and almost equally upsetting, she can't even go somewhere familiar to stay while she figures out how to adjust to being an orphan; with no known father or other relatives, she is relegated to the legal responsibility of the state of Arizona and uprooted from the life and the people she knew.From Courtney Summers, the New York Times bestselling author of the 2019 Edgar Award Winner and breakout hit, Sadie, comes a sensational follow-up -- another pulls-no-punches thriller about an aspiring young journalist determined to save her sister from a cult. Girl in pieces" brauchte hierzulande zwei Anläufe, bis es eine ausreichende Leserschaft erreichen konnte, wobei heutzutage scheinbar schon der "TikTok made me by it" Hinweis als Lockmittel ausreicht; mir soll es Recht sein! The Perks of Being a Wallflower meets The End of the F***ing World in this dark young adult comedy about four unlikely friends dealing with the messy side of grief who embark on a road trip to Graceland.
