Independent Reading Girl In Pieces IRJE #2

For my independent reading book I am read a new book named Girl in Pieces By Kathleen Glasgow.  It’s about girl who is trying to cope and has been though the most painful things. In this quote she talks about how she is in the hospital and she genuinely wanted to say something but couldn’t.

I wished my eyes to tell her sorry because I had no words. (P.19)

It connected to me specifically because there’s some things you wish you could say but hope they just understand by the way that you’re looking at them. I think facial expressions especially what you’re saying with your eyes can sometimes mean a lot more than words. Sadly many people are scared to use the words, due to the vulnerability they feel when speaking. I think this quote tho it is small it sends an extremely powerful message.
