Our teenage years and the inexplicable crazy decisions we make during our glory days are explored in a new way. The Infinite Pieces of Us by Rebekah Crane is a YA coming-of-age novel that warmed my heart and transported me right back to my younger years. Esther is holding onto a secret that her family has moved her halfway across the country to avoid. Esther, an avid math whiz, meets Color, Jesus, Beth and Moss and the friends band together and share their most personal secrets and stories. The group tries to navigate life at a time of discovering their identities, while contending with certain disapproval from their parents. Your heart will feel, ache and break for each of these characters as they try to define their place in the world and discover who they are.
I got an advance readers copy of this novel through Amazon First Reads and I am thrilled that I selected this novel as my October pick. This book transported me right back to the time when I was in high school unsure of who I was or what life was going to look like. I read this entire novel in one sitting over the course of a few hours and could not put it down. Esther's life completely captivated me and although this novel is branded YA, it is a brilliant read for audiences both young and old. Crane's writing flows so flawlessly and the world she has created will stay in your heart for awhile.
