Girl in Pieces: The million-copy TikTok sensation
About this deal
i really liked her friendship with blue, it was unstable just like their mentality, disliking each other at the start but finding comfort and healing in each other arms through the following months was presented so naturally. There are also one too many artist-as-mentor figures but the underlying theme of creativity as a restorative power is interesting and is skilfully explored by Glasgow.
They can pull their life together, but the threat of falling backwards will always be hiding in the corner. Then we jump into the future a few years, where we spend most of the story, and we’re still with Charlie. So, if you like chatting about random stuff with members of the book community (authors, bloggers, publishers, readers, vloggers, etc.Glasgow's use of adult characters to challenge, support, and mirror the teen characters is genuinely inspired, and the resulting fictional neighborhood dynamic felt intensely real. i had such unstable thoughts for him, cannot figure out if i liked him or not, and i was sure that i’ll hate him after the things that happened in 85% of the book, but after months later at the concert, seeing him trying to recover, apologizing in a way that charlie can feel with her soul made me like him. They roll her up in a carpet to stem the bleeding and deliver her to hospital, and subsequently to Creeley, where the kindly Dr Casper attempts group therapy sessions with a host of ravaged young women.
All the characters have different attributes, but when it came down to the entire story, there were parts where I felt for these characters and others where I didn’t feel for them. It is not only the trauma of being kidnapped and held hostage by a serial killer but what bond that was formed.
The book opens with Charlie Davis in a treatment facility, in a ward with other women who engage in self-harm, including cutting and burning. Some of our partners may process your data as a part of their legitimate business interest without asking for consent.
Society needs to readjust their understanding of what "recovery" means, and I genuinely believe Girl In Pieces is a book that will help with that understanding. Then, on their way home, they are run off the road, abducted, and taken hostage into this serial killer’s basement.I get that Charlie has had it hard as hell, the feeling of empathy is there, but the writing reads like snippets, making it difficult to connect to any of the characters. Cutting lets her get to the place where it’s all not bothering her and there’s nothing remaining but a calm feeling. When she learns that a girl from Creeley has committed suicide, Blue goes on a drug bender with Riley, whose drug dealer beats her up and trashes Charlie’s apartment.
