You’d Be Home Now by Kathleen Glasgow Audiobook Summary
From 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 Montclair. The car accident 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.
You’d Be Home Now by Kathleen Glasgow Audiobook Review
Review by Elyse Walters [Goodreads.com]
Audiobook….read by Kathleen Glasgow, and Julia Knippen
….12 hours and 11 minutes
This contemporary young adult novel is as engaging as it is heartbreaking…..
Images, and thoughts are endless as we contemplate how a car accident that killed a high school student opens up other serious issues: substance abuse being the forefront zinger that sets off a string of yet other breakdowns, and subplots ….revealing many cracks encompassing a family, a brother and sister, the high school curriculum, (students organized a walk-out in their English class over assigned reading by ‘White Men’ only), teachers, the neighbours, and friendships, in a small town community….
a type of ‘modern-day’ re-telling of ‘Our Town’, by Thornton Wilder.
Strewn with agonies, emotional intensity, intelligence, and intimacy —portrayed through the characters—
Kathleen Glasgow explores the ways in which we hide from ourselves—formulate false assumptions, project judgments onto others—breakdown as individuals, as family, and as community….
and how love, tragedy, and the need for honest connection may be the only things that bring us back out.
Deeply compassionate … deeply moving … utterly authentic.
Kathleen’s work speaks with an understanding of the unconscionable —
One of the best young adult writers of this generation.
