Kai’s duties as the future Enforcer include eradicating any remaining Ordinaries, and these Trials are his chance to prove that he’s internalized his brutal training. It is forbidden to copy anything for publication elsewhere without written permission from the copyright holder.

Obwohl ich "TikTok" eher zwiegespalten gegenüberstehe, bin ich der Plattform immens dankbar dafür, dass die Bücher von Kathleen Glasgow nun doch weiter übersetzt werden. A brilliant, honest, raw look at what it really means to lose someone essential and make grudging peace with what is gained in the exchange.I received a copy of this book to promote on Instagram, but I was interested in the book before the promotion and so I read it right away. the ending was well rounded and all, but the 100 or so pages before the resolution were really dull and could’ve been cut so much shorter to not bore the reader to death. She made sure I had manners, greeted people, said my farewells, did my chores and handled all my responsibilities. Kathleen Glasgow is the author of the internationally bestselling novels Girl in Pieces, How to Make Friends with the Dark, and You'd Be Home Now. Those last 200 pages are gripping, but I just feel this book would have benefited from reducing the cyclical thoughts and spreading out the action over more pages.

We can experience something about friendships, families, support and letting go, how support groups work, and about the childcare system in Amerika.But I need the other half of my machine to beep and whir at me, and do all that other stuff moms are supposed to do. Kathleen Glasgow's prose commands the page with its trademark beauty and grace, and Tiger Tolliver is a character readers will root for every step of the way—and won't soon forget. Jugendstrafsystem in den USA, Mobbing an Schulen, Alkohol-/ und Drogenabhängigkeit, Obdachlosigkeit, Armut, Suizid, sowie Gewalt an Kindern und Jugendlichen angesprochen und damit muss man erstmal zurechtkommen. if you’ve lost your mom or even someone very close to you, this book could be incredibly triggering for you, no matter how long ago it was.

Scenes and concepts that are strongly reminiscent of the Hunger Games fall flat: They aren’t bolstered by the original’s heart or worldbuilding logic that would have justified a few extreme story elements. I love the way Kathleen Glasgow uses words to create scenarios, situations, charakters, feelings and a whole world. I wanted to like it, I really did, and sometimes I did actually like it, but the writing and execution for me were the biggest issues. Going into How to Make Friends with the Dark I knew I was dealing with heart hitting, emotional prose that will leave me feel low, but nothing prepared me for the amount of emotions I feltl. Illogical leaps and inconsistent characterizations abound, with lighthearted romantic interludes juxtaposed against genocide, child abuse, and sadism.I also can suffer from repetitive thoughts, but that doesn't mean I didn't find it frustrating at times and all I could think was "let's get a move on. We don't have a lot, we never have, but we've made do with what my mom makes as the county Bookmobile lady and from helping out at Bonita's daycare. We meet Tiger Tolliver at her most broken--at her darkest moment--and yet, somehow, How To Make Friends With the Dark teaches us how to let the light in. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

You spend a lot of time stuck in Tiger's mind and her thoughts, for the first part of the book, can be quite cyclical and repetitive and a bit like "get on with it. I am a naturally optimistic person and I hope that when we come out on the other side we will be kinder to each other, and gentler to the planet. It's also hard to predict the ending to her stories as well which I love because I'm always wondering what will happen next. Thaddeus came out of nowhere and became her friend in a very short period of time, which felt rushed and unrealistic to me, though I appreciated that he didn't just become a love interest as these characters tend to.A few glimmers of hope appear in the form of friendships and kindnesses, but this narrative is chiefly a first-person experience of the void left behind when the most important person in a young woman’s life is suddenly gone. In How to Make Friends with the Dark, Kathleen Glasgow's prose begs and pleads and grasps at the light, like a prayer. Most books about mental health and death do say dumb things like "Things will get better" and "Keep going". I was surprised by what happened to Tiger in the end, but Kathleen Glasgow is good enough to hide that surprise until the end.
