Le Monstre chez Moi by Amy Giles
"J'ai absolument adoré détester le père de Hadley. Un personnage exécrable, le genre qui me fait perdre confiance en l'humanité.
L'histoire était parfaite. Je ne m'attendais pas du tout à la fin, je suis tombée des nues. Je le relirais avec plaisir!" Read more of this review »

This book is mighty powerful. As a huge fan of Girl in Pieces, I had no doubt How to Make Friends with the Dark would also be gorgeously written. What I loved most about this book was how it handled Tiger's journey as she learned to live with grief. ...more

“Life is either about moving forward or looking back. We’re moving forward again, but we’ll never forget what’s back there behind us.”
Amy Giles, That Night

“We live our lives like survivors, weaker in some places, but stronger in others. Scarred, but healing.”
Amy Giles, That Night

“Maybe I understand now why we stay here on our fragile sandbar, why we make ourselves vulnerable.
Because we're resilient. We rebuild. It's what we do.”
Amy Giles, That Night
