    • Abstract:
      Summary: It's always been Tiger and her mother against the world. And sometimes Tiger has been pushing away from her mother's over-protectiveness. Then, on a day like any other, her mother dies-- and now Tiger is alone. To her it feels like it's the brightest day of summer, but it's dark outside; it's dark in the house, in her room, and in her heart. The darkness is going to split Tiger apart-- unless she can learn to make friends with it. -- adapted from info provided and jacket

Booklist Reviews 2019 March #1

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. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
