From the author of the New York Times bestselling novel Girl in Pieces comes a new heartbreaking story about love and loss and learning how to continue when it feels like you’re surrounded by darkness.

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.

A book as fierce, tender, and rare as its aptly named heroine, Tiger. How to Make Friends with the Dark is a gorgeously nuanced meditation on grief and family, and the incredible love that can pull you through the darkest of times.”—Meg Leder, author of Letting Go of Gravity

“Kathleen Glasgow is the rare type of skilled storyteller that knows you have to hurt your characters before putting them back together. I loved every word of this lyrical and devastating novel.”—Kara Thomas, author of The Cheerleaders

“In this raw, powerful, and heartbreaking meditation on loss and grief, Glasgow writes with unflinching beauty. 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.”—Julie Buxbaum, New York Times bestselling author of Tell Me Three Things

Praise for Kathleen Glasgow’s Girl in Pieces

Girl, Interrupted meets Speak.”—Refinery29.com

“A dark yet powerful read.”—PasteMagazine.com

One of the most affecting novels we have read.”—Goop.com

Breathtaking and beautifully written.”—Bustle

A haunting, beautiful, and necessary book that will stay with you long after you’ve read the last page.”—Nicola Yoon, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Everything, Everything and The Sun Is Also a Star

Story Locale: Contemporary; a small town in New Mexico

Kathleen Glasgow’s debut, Girl in Pieces, was a New York Times bestseller and has continued to sell consistently since it was published. We held back the publication of the paperback for nearly two years because of the continued HC sales.

Kathleen is a gifted writer with a brilliant voice and received much critical acclaim for GIP.

A story about survival and healing, this a powerful tale of strength that, just like GIP, will speak to multiple generations of readers.

This story has the potential for an even wider audience than GIP. It’s more commercial than Kathleen’s first book—a less emotionally difficult book to read.

Includes a deep look at the definition of family, the foster care system, and the many ways people handle grief.

Kathleen Glasgow’s first novel was the New York Times bestselling novel Girl in Pieces. How to Make Friends with the Dark is her second novel. She lives and writes in Tucson, Arizona.
