Review:

I’m not even going to try to properly review “Girl in Pieces” aside from saying that it is a difficult read about such topics as mental illness, cutting, horrific abuse, and homelessness.  It’s all presented in a type of journal format and leaves the reader feeling unsettled – as it should.  This novel would make a good jumping point for conversations between parents and teenagers.

This unbiased review is based upon a complimentary copy provided by the publisher.
