‘Pieces’ is an emotionally deep story, dealing with very difficult subject matter. At one point I found the issues upsetting and hard to read but the characters really got to me and I had to find out how their story ended.
Carmen has been looking after her brother Mattie since he was a baby, as their mother was a neglectful junkie/alcoholic. The teenager showed such strength and determination and her desire to keep them together was astounding. After meeting Ollie at school she has something of her own, something beautiful. She has a very difficult journey ahead but so many good people want to help. There is so much about this book that I want to recommend, I’d be here all day extolling it’s virtues. A well deserved 5 stars!
I was given this ARC by Ylva Publishing in return for an honest review.
