Girl in Pieces

We rated this book:


This girl has a great deal going on and has experienced so much in her young lifetime that adults couldn’t even begin to imagine. The audience is young adults and adults. To cope with her pain, the main character cuts herself. While in a hospital she hears others talking and talking and she doesn’t want to talk to deal with her pain; she is repressing it. “I cut all my words out. My heart was too full of them.” There’s so much of this book I like. It is descriptive but yet subtle, and you almost don’t catch the full extent of its meaning at first. The imagery is beautiful. The author alternates between run-on sentences and short choppy sentences that place you inside the girl’s mind. The author’s diction is so unique and beautiful, like nothing I’ve ever read before. I recommend this book and give it five stars. After over four hundred pages, although the ending was good, I felt it ended too abruptly. I wanted more. I don’t know if this would make a good series, but I would enjoy a sequel.
