Piecing Me Together Reviews

  • Amanda NEVER MANDY

    **I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.**

    When I am in giveaway mode I try to move down the list as quickly as possible. I really only glance at the cover to gauge how interested I am in it and skim over the title to make sure it isn’t part of a series (always have to start with book one). I don’t dig into the synopsis because I like to be surprised when they show up in the mail. This book was a huge surprise for me because lately I have been trying to avoid YA books. It’s

    This was a really LIFEY type of book. And you can argue that "lifey" isn't a word all you want but I'm just going to keep using it because I'm as eloquent as a refried bean. (How do I even REVIEW. It's a mystery to us all.)

    Anyway! I did think this was a rather slow book and it didn't have so much a plot as it was a just the tale of a black teen girl named Jade who's also an artist and also just tryign to find her place in the world and be proud of who she is. It's about her LIFE. Everything fro

    I don't know what's worse. Being mistreated because of the colour of your skin, your size, or having to prove that it really happened.

    4.5*

    Probably one of the best YA books I’ve read in a very long time

  • Dahlia

    I love Renee Watson's contemp YAs; I just think she always nails not just the voice but the experience she's going for. Both THIS SIDE OF HOME and PIECING ME TOGETHER are about Black girls in Portland struggling to be heard in different situations, yes, but they're also about said girls discovering the power of their activism, and how important their voices are and can be, and how to find the people in this world who will help amplify you versus those who will shut you down, and that's an especi ...more

  • Emily May

    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.


    Piecing Me Together is such an important and moving book. It released during Black History Month, and was perhaps overshadowed by the buzz surrounding the amazing The Hate U Give that followed up a month later. Both books look at what it means to be a black teen in modern America, but t ...more

  • Janani

    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.

  • Ava

    OH MY GOD THIS WAS MAGNIFICENT.

    I highly, highly, highly recommend this book about a poor Black girl artist growing up in Portland. Wow.

    Please, please read this. There isn't enough hype for this masterpiece, despite the fact that the majority of my friends rated this 5 stars. Why aren't people talking about this? (Or where have I been to miss it? Seriously, I wish I picked this up months ago.)

    Just read it.

    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
