You'd Be Home Now Synopsis

From the New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces and How to Make Friends with the Dark comes a breathtaking contemporary YA about addiction, family and finding your voice. The quiet one, the obedient one, the reliable one. Emmy has spent her life being told exactly who she is.

Not strong-willed like her beautiful sister Maddie and not in rehab like her wild brother Joey. But when a tragic accident changes life in her small town forever, can Emmy keep up the act?

You'd Be Home Now Press Reviews

'Impossibly moving.' -- Vanity Fair

'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

'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, author of Dear Evan Hansen

Praise for Kathleen Glasgow:
