How to Make Friends with the Dark

The story of an awful, universe-gone-mad-mistake, and one girl’s emotional battle for clarity and forgiveness.

Tiger Tolliver and her mom have always been a team, but recently Tiger has started to wonder if their well-oiled machine is really so well-oiled after all. Because, come to think of it, her mom needs to control everything. The songs on the radio. The truth about the dad she’s never met. Whether or not she goes to school dances. She can never just be on her own.

And this doesn’t even cover the rest of the sixteen million nerve-wracking, day-killing OTHER things she’s got going on. Lupe Hidalgo at school for instance, who’s only mission in life seems to be making hers a living hell.

But then something terrible happens. And Tiger realises that being on her own isn’t something she really wants. Not at all. And so begins her quest. To find her dad. To find herself. And a whole heap of others along the way.

Kathleen Glasgow lives in Tucson, Arizona. She wrote the majority of this book during arts fellowships and in all it took her eight years to complete. It is a powerful and personal novel which addresses the important theme of teen depression and making a life for yourself.
