About this item
About the BookAfter a fatal car accident that reveals Emory's brother Joey's opioid addiction, Emory struggles to help him on his road to recovery and make herself heard in a town that insists on not listening.
Book SynopsisFrom the New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces comes a breathtaking story about a town, its tragedies, and the quiet beauty of everyday life. For all of Emory's life she's been told who she is. In town she's the rich one--the great-great-granddaughter of the mill's founder. At school she's hot Maddie Ward's younger sister. And at home, she's the good one, her stoner older brother Joey's babysitter. Everything was turned on its head, though, when she and Joey were in the car accident that killed Candy MontClaire. The car accident that revealed just how bad Joey's drug habit was. Four months later, Emmy's junior year is starting, Joey is home from rehab, and the entire town of Mill Haven is still reeling from the accident. Everyone's telling Emmy who she is, but so much has changed, how can she be the same person? Or was she ever that person at all? Mill Haven wants everyone to live one story, but Emmy's beginning to see that people are more than they appear. Her brother, who might not be cured, the popular guy who lives next door, and most of all, many ghostie addicts who haunt the edges of the town. People spend so much time telling her who she is--it might be time to decide for herself. Inspired by the American classic Our Town, You'd Be Home Now is Kathleen Glasgow's glorious modern story of a town and the secret lives people live there. And the story of a girl, figuring out life in all its pain and beauty and struggle and joy.
"As beautiful as it is raw, You'd Be Home Now is an unflinching tale of addiction. Vivid with fear and resplendent with truth, Kathleen Glasgow's stories will always break your heart, but so too will they give you the hope to rebuild it." --Amy Beashel, author of The Sky Is Mine "Raw, honest, and over-flowing with feelings, You'd Be Home Now does the real work of healing and acceptance unlike anything I've ever experienced on the page. Once again, Glasgow brings her readers through it with her special brand of care interspersed between layers of sparkling prose. Emory and her devotion to her brother, Joey, will stick with me for a very long time." --Erin Hahn, author of You'd Be Mine and More Than Maybe "A love story like you've never seen. In her gripping tale of an addict-adjacent teen and the fragile ecosystem she inhabits, Kathleen Glasgow expands our hearts and invites in a little more humanity." --Val Emmich, New York Times bestselling author of Dear Evan Hansen: The Novel and Maybe We're Electric "With heartbreaking honesty and breathtaking beauty, Kathleen Glasgow renders the invisible faces of addiction with rare humanity, giving a voice to the often-forgotten constellation of struggles reflected in the lives and love of those impacted by another's addiction." --Amber Smith, New York Times bestselling author of The Way I Used to Be "Through this compassionate sibling relationship, Kathleen Glasgow not only nails what it's like to love someone with an addiction but humanizes the struggle of a teenage drug addict. Emory and Joey's story as devoted sister and brother will tear you apart and put you back together again." --Hayley Krischer, author of Something Happened to Ali Greenleaf
"An evocative, soaring exploration of family, friendship, and the many lives that encompass a small town. With a cast of beautifully drawn characters, You'd Be Home Now is all about losing everything and finding yourself. A welcome affirmation that pain can make way for beauty and hope. Nobody fills a story with emotion quite like Kathleen Glasgow." --Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of The Girls Are All So Nice Here
