And now it's Tiger, alone. Here is how you learn to make friends with the dark.
Over the two weeks after her mother's death, Tiger must wrestle with guilt over the last words she said to her; manage funeral details as she struggles with grief; and move to a foster home, which makes the absence of her mother feel deeper than ever. Two weeks is nothing after a death, but at the same time, it's long enough for Tiger to start finding her way forward again. From the New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces comes a novel about love and loss and learning how to continue when it feels like you're surrounded by darkness.
