Pieces of Love by PJ Sharon Review

Title: Pieces of Love
Author: PJ Sharon
Genre: Young Adult
Pages: 235
Price: $2.99
Thoughts: A realistic YA novel.

Book Synopsis:

Sixteen year-old Alexis Hartman wants nothing more than to smoke pot and play guitar. Getting high and escaping into her music seems the perfect solution when her world is shattered by her sister's death. But when she’s arrested for possession a second time, life couldn’t get any more complicated. Her mother's breakdown is the final straw that forces Lexi to spend the summer on the West Coast with her grandmother, Maddie. When Lexi steps over the line one too many times, she's certain her life is over and that she’s destined for juvenile detention—until Maddie decides that desperate measures are called for. A three week Mediterranean cruise—for seniors.

Eighteen year-old Ethan Kaswell, the poster child for good sons, is stranded on the cruise when his father, a famous heart surgeon, is called away. With his own life perfectly mapped out, Ethan finds Lexi’s unpredictability irresistible. Although he’s smart enough to see that there is no future in falling for a “vacation crush,” Lexi’s edgy dark side draws him like an anchor to the bottom of the sea. As the two embark on the journey of a lifetime, will Lexi finally learn to love someone—even when she has to let them go?


PJ Sharon has realism down pat. It's actually one of the things I love most about her books. Sharon writes young adult and coming of age novels that teens can truly relate to. Pieces of Love features a girl who uses drugs and her own music as a form of escape, something many teenagers can relate to. However, when she meets a great guy, she may be able to let the pain go and replace it with love. This is a great book that you'll have a hard time putting down.
