Girl in Pieces review: writing that makes the cut
Thank you! After surviving a suicide attempt, a fragile teen isn't sure she can endure without cutting herself. Seventeen-year-old Charlie Davis, a white girl living on the margins, thinks she has little reason to live: her father drowned himself; her bereft and abusive mother kicked her out; her best friend, Ellis, is nearly brain dead after cutting too deeply; and she's gone through unspeakable experiences living on the street. After spending time in treatment with other young women like her—who cut, burn, poke, and otherwise hurt themselves—Charlie is released and takes a bus from the Twin Cities to Tucson to be closer to Mikey, a boy she "like-likes" but who had pined for Ellis instead. But things don't go as planned in the Arizona desert, because sweet Mikey just wants to be friends. Feeling rejected, Charlie, an artist, is drawn into a destructive new relationship with her sexy older co-worker, a "semifamous" local musician who's obviously a junkie alcoholic.
Charlie is a girl who cuts herself, because, as her doctor says, she has internalized abuse and blames and punishes herself for the painfulness of her life. Such hurt can come from many things, such as sexual, physical, verbal, or emotional mistreatment. As Charlie herself understands:. Wash, rinse, fucking repeat. Cut out my father. Cut out my mother.
Kathleen Glasgow: her aim was to write an uplifting personal story that would inspire hope in anyone affected by self-harm and she has achieved it. For if any book deserves to use the word, it is this examination of a damaged young female who has experienced more trauma than most women will ever go through in their lives. When we meet Charlie she is resident in Creeley, a treatment centre in Minnesota for teenage girls who self-harm. Her drug addict friends Evan and Dump encourage her to comply. 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.
