Summary Pieces of Us

Summary Pieces of Us characters ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ¸ Margie Gelbwasser Margie Gelbwasser ¸ 9 Download Tmare that changed her life But Julie her younger sister sees Katie only as everything she’s not And their mother will never let Julie forget itUp at the lake they can be anything anyone Free But then Katie’s secret gets out forcing each of them to face reality before it tears them to piece. Let s talk about a disturbing book Let s talk about a book that made me uncomfortable Let s talk about a book without likable characters Gelbwasser somehow makes you care about four teens who are all so broken and abusedabusive I d argue they all abuse and are abused eually Little by little they continue to fall apart and it looks like there s no redemption to be had at all I walked away pretty unsettled and I mean that in a good way That is successful storytelling This is a book that s very frank with sex and how it is a tool of power And there is a lot of power wielding here There are some pretty big writing issues for me including weak pacing passage of time problems distracting tense changes especially with Kyle though arguably he talks to himself in second person for a reason and it took a long time to hear four distinct voices in the characters But the story and the goal of the story were so successful and so painful and so powerful that the mechanics are worth overlooking Full review here
