Now she’s falling to pieces and trying to get through it all. She’s already lost so much that she’s in a state of deep emotional pain. One of the ways that she gets through it all is by cutting herself.

When she’s cutting, the reality of the pain is able to make all of the pain and sadness that she’s feeling go away. Cutting lets her get to the place where it’s all not bothering her and there’s nothing remaining but a calm feeling. She doesn’t focus on things that are too tough to feel but she still feels all the time. One of these things is her father, or that thing that happened under the bridge.

She doesn’t have to think about the fact that her closest friend Ellis is never coming back. Or that her mother just doesn’t have anything inside to give to her daughter anymore. When Charlie has to leave a treatment center because her insurance has run out, she’s out on her own. There she has to fend for herself in Tucson, Arizona.

There in the bright landscape she has to start what seems like the impossible. She has to try and put who she is back together once more. Can Charlie do what it takes to try and provide a life for herself? Or will all the weight that she is carrying and all of her demons end up taking her down instead? Read this book to find out!

In this story, the main character is a young girl named Tiger. She’s just sixteen years old and is like any other girl her age. When it comes to her life, she’s always been close with her mother. She’s been her entire world for some time now. But things are starting to change slowly as she continues to grow up.

Sixteen is a time where you try to define yourself as a person. But now that Tiger is sixteen she’s finding that her mother has a ton of control over her. When it comes to her mother handling just about everything in her life, Tiger’s finding it to be suffocating in nature.

Just when she thinks that she cannot handle it anymore, something happens unexpectedly that changes everything.

It’s a huge turn for life to take, and Tiger doesn’t know what to do at first. She’s just left to pick up the pieces and try to figure out how she’s going to live life without her mother there. She’s grieving for the loss of her mother, but she also has to start making her own way in the world while figuring out who she is.

Tiger does her best and finds that there are people out there that she can rely on. She makes her own type of family with people who are related to her and people who are not. They’re the ones that are going to be with her, and Tiger finds out that she has a lot more love around her than she imagined. They’re part of the journey moving forward along with her.

For the first time in her life, Tiger’s making friends when it comes to the dark. Will she make it through this tough time with the help of her family and their support? Read this book to find out!
