ABOUT Falling to Pieces
Suffering the bitter tongues of her alcoholic mother and cruel boyfriend, Jade struggles just to look at herself in the mirror. She hates her life, her insecurities, her ineptitudes, but most of all . . . Jade hates herself. She wants nothing more than to disappear, and everyone seems happy to let her. Until Kiernan Parks moves back into town.
Jade’s been crushing on him ever since kindergarten, when his family moved away. But now he’s back, and looking better than ever.
Hiding is a way of life for Jade, but Kiernan insists on uncovering the real girl he’s sees trapped inside her. On drawing her out of her shell, and showing her that she is someone worthy of love.
Together, they fight back the darkness she’s living in. But when they finally step into the light, will the secret Kiernan’s been trying to keep buried destroy Jade, once and for all?
For some people, happy endings are a fairytale.
In a word, WOW!
Starting out, I was bogged down by all of Jade's internalization and negativity, but the further I read, the more compelling Jade's story became. I couldn't put it down. I found myself grabbing my phone (I had the Kindle version) and reading wherever I could find time. I don't like to give spoilers, so I won't, but the emotion Jamie's words evoked was palpable. I truly felt the self-loathing, the anger, the hurt, the hope, the new love, anguish, and so much more. Jamie writes as though she has experienced this herself, which makes my heart hurt for her if she has, makes it hurt the way it hurts for Jade. I cannot wait to read to continuation of Jade's story in Pieces of My Heart, book #3 in the Pieces Series, but not until I read Angel, book #2.
A bit about Jamie . . .
I am a full time author of YA literature, which I absolutely love! When I'm not writing or spending time with my family, I can usually be found with my nose in a book. I currently reside in Ravena, NY with my wonderful husband and three crazy kids . . . plus the cat, the bird and the rabbit.
