Product Details

Praise

“Skillfully tackles topics of race, class, and violence in a moving testament to family and friendship, love and loss, and the power of forgiveness.”—Publishers Weekly

“A tender, accomplished story about the coming-of-age of a girl whose good intentions are challenged by uncertainties and her efforts to do what is right, even when that’s frightening and painful.”—Booklist

“An engrossing and accessible first-person narrative, Pieces of Why deftly challenges stereotypes while addressing the critical need for young people to connect to adults they can trust to help them make meaning of the complex world around them…Readers who like realistic fiction will appreciate the story’s authenticity, as will those looking for literature reflecting the daily challenges of their own lives.”—VOYA

“[A] compelling and sensitive exploration of self-determination and coming of age.”—BCCB
