Piecing Me Together by Renée Watson: Book Review

Good Hello, friends! I wanted to take a moment to remind you that you matter, you are valued, and loved. Not everyone knows the struggle you go through, but I don’t need to know to know that you matter. Now onto the review..

Today’s review is on Piecing Me Together that I finished back in February. Now, I did want to mention that I read three books in a row with some similarities that affected my enjoyment of this book.

My lame synopsis: Jade gets a mentor through a women of colour program at her school. Her mom works two jobs and loves her very much (Goodreads).

My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

By the time I finished Piecing Me Together, it felt like a very generic young adult book. It was a good story, but a little forgettable. I feel the writing is just okay; there was a lot of over identifying who was speaking which got a little annoying.

There was some great teachable moments and themes. For example, talking about race, women of colour, and how they are viewed in society. It was also nice to see more books with parent(s) who are more involved in the main characters live instead of absent.

As always, thanks for reading!
