Reviews

All in Pieces is poignant and well crafted with characters that are equal parts heartbreaking and heartwarming. If you only read one book by Suzanne Young, let it be this one.--Faith Hochhalter, Children's Book Specialist, Changing Hands Bookstore
All In Pieces is heartbreaking in its authenticity, and unwavering in its hopefulness.

All in Pieces is raw and real, and such a beautiful story that I wish I had written it.--Trish Doller, author of Where the Stars Still Shine
Real, raw and a story that will touch your heart.--Katie McGarry, author of Walk the Edge and Pushing the Limits
"Authentic, engaging, and well-crafted, Suzanne Young's All In Pieces perfectly captures the resilience of unprotected teenagers and how friends can become the family we choose. This book is full of raw, messy, beautiful heart."

--Christa Desir, author of BLEED LIKE ME and OTHER BROKEN THINGS
High-school senior Savannah Sutton is now at an alternative school after she stuck a pencil through her exboyfriend's hand after he repeatedly insulted her developmentally disabled little brother. At 17, she's the de facto adult in her household--her mother left the family long ago when Evan's disability became evident, and her alcoholic father can't hold onto a job, let alone care for a disabled child. At her new school, she meets handsome Cameron, a wealthy senior who got kicked out of his private school for the destruction of school property. Unable to help themselves, they see how to help each other, and slowly a tender, loving relationship grows, as well as their senses of self-esteem. Savannah is a tough, wounded, and often abrasive young woman, but she adores her little brother, and when she loses care of him to a well-meaning but insensitive aunt, she is devastated. Young (The Program, 2013) is at her best when portraying Savannah's fierce love; the bitter realization that she cannot protect or provide for Evan is tremendously moving. -- Debbie Carton--Booklist "September 15, 2016"
"Young's characters are likable and believable in their flaws. The protagonist's authentic voice makes this title a fast read and hard to put down . . . For those who enjoy books by Simone Elkeles."
