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 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.

“Renders the invisible faces of addiction with rare humanity.” —Amber Smith, New York Times bestselling author of The Way I Used to Be

An evocative, soaring exploration of family, friendship, and the many lives that encompass a small town.” —Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of The Girls Are All So Nice Here


First off, I found this book SO relevant and important. I had not read any of Glasgow’s books prior to this title, but had heard great things so I was really excited to be a part of this tour.

Not only did Kathleen cover the tough topics but she created characters in this story that immediately grabbed my attention and kept me interested. Appearances are just that, and in this story through those expectations, Emmy is so relatable and real, showing that sometimes we as people hide our pain, and we all just want to feel seen.
