As she struggles to recover and survive, seventeen-year-old homeless Charlotte "Charlie" Davis cuts herself to dull the pain of abandonment and abuse.



I’m not even going to try to properly review “Girl in Pieces” aside from saying that it is a difficult read about such topics as mental illness, cutting, horrific abuse, and homelessness.  It’s all presented in a type of journal format and leaves the reader feeling unsettled – as it should.  This novel would make a good jumping point for conversations between parents and teenagers.

This unbiased review is based upon a complimentary copy provided by the publisher.
