About this deal

There were only two of them, so without the other parent, Tiger became the property of state, and not only does she grive her mother, but her life also completely changed. Are you a teacher, librarian or bookseller, and keen to have one of our authors appear at an event, or just want to know more about our books? Just like in Kathleen Glasgow's other novel Girl in Pieces, it starts slow and then goes sideways fast. As a summary if we want to take control of lives and fill the blank pages by designating our own fate, we have to learn making peace with the darkness ! But the scariest thing in life is loosing your inner light , turn it off forever and surrender to the dark!

Glasgow's Schreibstil ist sehr intensiv und lässt ebenso intensiv mitfühlen und Augen feucht werden. Though she is given a grace period of one night in her home, she is then taken to a series of foster homes. Cred că pur și simplu m-a prins într-o pasă în care nu eram dispusă deloc să mă implic într-o dramă. Am citit despre un copil al cărui tată i-a rupt spatele, o fetiță abandonată de mama drogată, alta care a trebuit să conducă de la 11 ani pentru a-și aduce tatăl de la bar etc.Mom's been on the couch since yesterday morning, cocooned in a black-and-red wool blanket, sleeping off a headache. Overall, I thought it was fine, even really good at times, but because of the writing, I just really couldn't get into it. Tiger's mother has always been her whole world, but now she's sixteen her mother's control over everything in her life is suffocating. We see Grace literally turns into a tiger and shows her claws against the bullies, starts to make new friends by discovering outside world and finally understands she is not alone on this world.

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. How there are people who aren’t the best, and shouldn’t be looking after children, and the people who really care. There were several times when Tiger just didn't address certain things that seemed like pretty pressing issues, which honestly contributed to my general dislike of her. Sometimes things were said that didn't feel like something any living, breathing human being would say, instead of a book character. Almost nothing happens for the first 150 - 200 pages and then EVERYTHING happens in the last 200 pages.The story follows Tiger (who’s real name is Grace) who for all intents and purposes is your average teenage girl. There is no romance in this young adult contemporary, so be aware of that (some readers will be happy about it I guess)! The writing was fantastic, the characters were insightful and brimming with depth, and the theme was topical and on point. Paedyn Gray witnessed the king kill her father five years ago, and she’s been thieving and sleeping rough ever since, all while faking Psychic abilities. I had such a hard time figuring out who the speaker was sometimes, because dialogue would continue into the next paragraph, but the new speaker rule was followed, even though the speaker was often the same.
