Spotlight on PIECES OF US by Margie Gelbwasser!

I'm always thrilled to spotlight a book by an author I know, especially one as super-cool as Margie Gelbwasser, but even more so when it's something so strikingly and hauntingly written as this:

 Summary from GoodReads:
Two families. Four teens.
A summer full of secrets.

Every summer, hidden away in a lakeside community in upstate New York, four teens leave behind their old identities…and escape from their everyday lives.

Yet back in Philadelphia during the school year, Alex cannot suppress his anger at his father (who killed himself), his mother (whom he blames for it), and the girls who give it up too easily. His younger brother, Kyle, is angry too—at his abusive brother, and at their mother who doesn’t seem to care. Meanwhile, in suburban New Jersey, Katie plays the role of Miss Perfect while trying to forget the nightmare that changed her life. But Julie, her younger sister, sees Katie only as everything she’s not. And their mother will never let Julie forget it.

Up at the lake, they can be anything, anyone. Free. But then Katie’s secret gets out, forcing each of them to face reality—before it tears them to pieces.

Thanks to Net Galley and Margie Gelbwasser, I was able to read an early copy of PIECES OF US. I guarantee this is a novel that will make you think. It goes to places that very few novels dare to go - tells a dark and painful story of four uniquely troubled teens. This story does not hold back--if you don't care for graphic and painful reading material, this one may not be for you. For those who are up for it, though, these gritty, well-drawn characters will take you on a memorable journey into their poor decisions and consequences that will haunt them--and you--for a long time after.

"Suspenseful, disturbing and emotionally fraught, a strong novel for a strong stomach.”  - Kirkus Reviews
