The epitome of a coming to age story, this book is about four very diverse teenagers. Their stories are filled with turmoil, despair and a love triangle that will all be revealed with nothing left out. Two sisters and two brothers come together every summer in upstate New York in their Russian grandparents' homes, a place they think they can forget about everything and everyone, where they can finally be themselves. That is until a secret will unfold and tear apart their relationships.
“Pieces of Us” by Margie Gelbwasser is a mentally disturbing and iconic eye opening experience. A realistic story for the day and age we live in is finally being told. All the secrets we keep growing up are unleashed in dramatic ways you would never guess would occur. The different views by each character are fascinating, especially the view point of Kyle who sees things unlike the other teenagers in the book. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, but you have to have a strong stomach to finish it.
