Yeah, I have no need or desire to read How to Make Friends with the Dark by Kathleen Glasgow. I have no doubt that this will likely be a great read for those who have an interest in reading about these topics, but I frankly want nothing to do with books that solely focus on grief in a contemporary setting. I’m good. There’s nothing that appeals to me with the idea of reading a book about a girl dealing with the death of her mother. I definitely need stories that focus on more than death and grief.
Ultimately, this one just isn’t and couldn’t be for me.
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.
