Summary
From the New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces comes a novel about love and loss and learning how to continue when it feels like you're surrounded by darkness that Karen M. McManus, the New York Times bestselling author of One of Us Is Lying , calls "rare and powerful."

Here is what happens when your mother dies.

It's the brightest day of summer and it's dark outside. It's dark in your house, dark in your room, and dark in your heart. You feel like the darkness is going to split you apart.

That's how it feels for Tiger. It's always been Tiger and her mother against the world. Then, on a day like any other, Tiger's mother dies. And now it's Tiger, alone.

Here is how you learn to make friends with the dark.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In another standout realistic fiction novel that tackles trauma and grief, Glasgow (Girl in Pieces, 2016) introduces 16-year-old Tiger (née Grace) Tolliver, whose simple, sheltered life in Mesa Luna, Arizona, is turned upside down when her single mother passes away suddenly from an aneurysm. In the midst of her guilt over her vitriolic last words to her mother, Tiger is placed into foster care and is confronted with the harsh realities many children go through in the system. Tiger's frank voice leads readers through her complicated grieving process, which includes never taking off the second-hand dress for the school dance her mother picked out for her right before she passed. While the ending meanders, Glasgow skillfully depicts different ways grief can manifest in a realistic, empathetic manner. The voice of Tiger's girl-bug becomes a particularly effective narrative device after Tiger notes, You'll look alive on the outside but be dead on the inside, flicking your wings and watching everyone through the jar. Tiger's distinctive, haunting voice will be hard to forget.--Caitlin Kling Copyright 2019 Booklist"
