Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 10 Up—Savannah is a good person trying to do right by her younger brother, Evan, who has an intellectual disability. When her misogynist, emotionally abusive boyfriend calls Evan a "retard," Savannah stabs him in the hand with a pencil. She is sent to an alternative high school her senior year for "anger management issues." Here she befriends recovering addict Travis and Retha, who also has anger management issues. These two are Savannah's only support system, as she lacks meaningful adult supervision. Her mother ran off a few years back, her father is an alcoholic who wants nothing to do with Evan or Savannah, and her aunt believes her to be dangerous since the stabbing incident. At her new high school, the teen keeps her head down and does the work, making sure she is home in time to care for her brother. She has no time for anyone else in her life, especially not rich boy Cameron. But when Savannah's life begins to slowly unravel, Cameron proves to be a friend before anything else. Young's characters are likable and believable in their flaws. The protagonist's authentic voice makes this title a fast read and hard to put down. VERDICT Budget permitting, this is a strong purchase for any teen collection. For those who enjoy books by Simone Elkeles.—Lisa Nabel, Tacoma Public Library, WA

Review

"All in Pieces is poignant and well crafted with characters that are equal parts heartbreaking and heartwarming. If you only read one book by Suzanne Young, let it be this one." (Faith Hochhalter, Children's Book Specialist, Changing Hands Bookstore )

"All In Pieces is heartbreaking in its authenticity, and unwavering in its hopefulness."

"All in Pieces is raw and real, and such a beautiful story that I wish I had written it." (Trish Doller, author of Where the Stars Still Shine )

"Real, raw and a story that will touch your heart." (Katie McGarry, author of Walk the Edge and Pushing the Limits )

"Authentic, engaging, and well crafted, Suzanne Young's All In Pieces perfectly captures the resilience of unprotected teenagers and how friends can become the family we choose. This book is full of raw, messy, beautiful heart."

  (Christa Desir, author of BLEED LIKE ME and OTHER BROKEN THINGS )

High school senior Savannah Sutton is now at an alternative school after she stuck a pencil through her exboyfriend’s hand after he repeatedly insulted her developmentally disabled little brother. At 17, she’s the de facto adult in her household—her mother left the family long ago when Evan’s disability became evident, and her alcoholic father can’t hold onto a job, let alone care for a disabled child. At her new school, she meets handsome Cameron, a wealthy senior who got kicked out of his private school for the destruction of school property. Unable to help themselves, they see how to help each other, and slowly a tender, loving relationship grows, as well as their senses of self esteem. Savannah is a tough, wounded, and often abrasive young woman, but she adores her little brother, and when she loses care of him to a well meaning but insensitive aunt, she is devastated. Young (The Program, 2013) is at her best when portraying Savannah’s fierce love; the bitter realization that she cannot protect or provide for Evan is tremendously moving. — Debbie Carton (Booklist September 15, 2016)

"Young’s characters are likable and believable in their flaws. The protagonist’s authentic voice makes this title a fast read and hard to put down . . . For those who enjoy books by Simone Elkeles."

"Young is at her best when portraying Savannah’s fierce love; the bitter realization that she cannot protect or provide for Evan is tremendously moving." (Booklist)

"Brave, honest, and complex characters . . . will inspire readers to see the beauty in broken things and give them the courage to pick up the pieces and put them together again." (Shaun David Hutchinson, author of We Are The Ants )
