"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

5 Star Pieces of Love is a spectacular, intriguing read. Sixteen year- old Alexis Hartman, in her attempt to escape her emptiness over the death of her sister, wants nothing more than to smoke pot and play guitar. Her mother has a breakdown after Alexis is arrested for possession. After attempts to rehabilitate Alexis fail, she is sent to her grandmother Maddie Hartman, in California for the summer. The astute and strict grandmother takes Alexis on the cruise she had booked previously. Alexis meets and is attracted to eighteen year-old Ethan Kaswell. who is traveling to meet his famous heart surgeon father in Italy. Ethan, who has his future planned and shows incredible depth and maturity, is attracted to Alexis’ unpredictability,.
Alexis’ youthful sarcasm and rebellious attitude is authentic. It fit her character perfectly. I connected with Alexis and could feel her pain. She strikes me as a real and strong heroine, who is going through a process of painful, but wonderful growth and self-discovery. Her grandmother Maddie was terrific, I loved her reprimands and lectures. Alexis’ relationship with her grandmother and the young Ethan kept me on the edge of my seat.
The author took me on adventures with the characters as they made visits to the towns and villages of Greece, Italy and Dubrovnik. Her images were descriptive and well-done. I could see and appreciate the architectural work, the art and the people of the places she took me to. I have fun on the cruise along with the characters. I am sure the author experienced all these places.
A wonderful page-turner.
Alexis was a pothead in the beginning. A girl getting high to forget her sadness and guilt. She didn't care what it did to others. It wasn't until her mom broke down that she began to get a sliver of caring and even than it was just because she was leaving to go to Maddie's and couldn't get high. Than she gets to Maddie's and gets high with Seth and forgets about Maddie altogether not caring how she would feel because she wanted to party. Now that led to her being on a senior's cruise and even at the beginning she acted snotty and treated people horribly. Than Ethan came into play and she began to thaw somewhat. She still acted meanly at times but Ethan began to change her. She began to see what her actions were doing. Maddie helped as well by explaining things about regrets and consequences.
Eventually Ethan and Alexis begin to have feelings well for Ethan it was love at first sight because really that is the only way to explain why he put up with the way Alexis treated him for so long. As they got closer they learned about each other and fell harder. unfortunately Alexis cared more about getting high and this started to weigh on her and him. She began to see things in a new light slowly but didn't want to admit it until Maddie fell ill. This changed everything and her.
Her and Ethan got to know each other more and see who they were to each other. A story of finding oneself and seeing how to get past the guilt and sadness and fears so you can live. Finding love and support in someone who only wants your happiness. A pleasant read for the beach and anytime.
I started this book thinking it would just be a time filler while I waited on another book to release. Boy was I wrong. Pieces of Love turned out to be my favorite book that I've read so far this year, and I'm a book addict who reads way too much. The characters are created well and feel real. You can't help but love them. The amount of detail used is perfect, as they travel the world and visit exotic places you feel like you are right there with them.
