Piecing Me Together Reviews

  • Kristina

    I love Renee's writing style and stories so much <3

    Simple and thought-provoking at the same time! Downright gorgeous!

    Absolutely recommend if you are interested in reading more diverse books.

    I loved this book about Jade, a teen girl growing up in a poor neighborhood in Oregon who attends a mostly-white private school. She is invited to an “at-risk” mentorship program called Women to Women, and Jade quickly figures out that just because her mentor is black doesn’t mean they can relate to each other. Jade’s voice is compelling and real, and the book is interspersed with gorgeous poetry (see Chapter 35, Things That are Black and Beautiful). The cover is also stunning – artwork done by ...more

  • Nina (Every Word A Doorway)

    Sometimes I just want to be comfortable in this skin, this body. Want to cock my head back and laugh loud and free, all my teeth showing, and not be told I'm too rowdy, too ghetto.


    It's a shame that one book release on a certain topic – such as The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas – can create such a buzz, whereas others focusing on similar, if not the same, topics are easily overlooked. Both of these books focus on race, injustice, and inequality, but go about addressing these themes in a very diff ...more

    "Sometimes it feels like I leave home a whole person, sent off with kisses from Mom, who is hanging her every hope on my future. By the time I get home I feel like my soul has been shattered into a million little pieces...And this makes me wonder if a black girl's life is only about being stitched together and coming undone, being stitched together and coming undone." (p. 85-86)

    This book is so stunning and complex, I can't believe more people aren't talking about it. Renée Watson is such an elegant writer. I'm only sorry that I didn't pick it up sooner.

  • Eeiko

    Solid book

    But I was left wanting more. Everything is so succinct. Characters and events are very relatable, but I have mixed feelings because everything played out a little too perfectly.

  • Latanya (CraftyScribbles)

    And this makes me wonder if a black girl's life is only about being stitched together and coming undone, being stitched together and coming undone. I wonder if there's ever a way for a girl like me to feel whole.

    What can I say? Renée Watson returns with another story of young black girlhood. After reading This Side of Home, I wanted more from this author. She delivered.

    Jade is a YA female protagonist that's needed. She offers, on page, the daily mirror almost every black girl reflects upon. Iss
