Piecing Me Together Reviews

  • Xan West

    This book was seriously amazing. It destroyed me in the best way. Gorgeous writing, wonderful and complex characterization, a beautiful arc. I now will read this author's entire backlist because it's just brilliant, in more ways than I have words for.

    This novel is told from the POV of Jade, a fat Black poor teen artist growing up in Portland. It's very much about class, art, and finding ways to speak up for yourself and be true to who you are. It's also about police violence targeting Black fol

    I'm going to write a book review about this masterpiece.

    This book is about a girl named Jade who lives in Portland, Oregon and she goes to a white school. Basically she is the only black girl in the whole school. One day, she gets called out to join The Women to Women project and at first she doesn't like it, until she meets Maxine, a women who is also black and has had similar experiences to Jade. When she joins Women To Women she meets other girls who are black and learns a lot about herself.

    **I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.**

    When I am in giveaway mode I try to move down the list as quickly as possible. I really only glance at the cover to gauge how interested I am in it and skim over the title to make sure it isn’t part of a series (always have to start with book one). I don’t dig into the synopsis because I like to be surprised when they show up in the mail. This book was a huge surprise for me because lately I have been trying to avoid YA books. It’s

    A powerful story about class, about how you find yourself, how you lose yourself, and what it means to be a black girl in America. Watson's story is full of heart, as much as it's full of moments that are heart-wrenching. Loved how this book explored friendship and intersectional relationships, as well as the microaggressions that can occur within them. This is a smart, savvy look at race; more than just looking at race relations, this delves into race challenges within the black community.

    I read this book based on two people's recommendations that it was game-changing and eye-opening. On one hand, I do like that this book brings up issues that I haven't seen before in any other books about a young, black teenager, such as reconciling privilege and advocating for racism as a bystander and voicing injustices. There were threads and motifs that were woven throughout this book gorgeously, and I also thought that Jade's evolution from someone unsure of herself to someone who is vocal ...more

    And this makes me wonder if a black girl's life is only about being stitched together and coming undone, being stitched together and coming undone. I wonder if there's ever a way for a girl like me to feel whole.

    What can I say? Renée Watson returns with another story of young black girlhood. After reading This Side of Home, I wanted more from this author. She delivered.

    Jade is a YA female protagonist that's needed. She offers, on page, the daily mirror almost every black girl reflects upon. Iss

    I love Renee's writing style and stories so much <3

    Simple and thought-provoking at the same time! Downright gorgeous!

    Absolutely recommend if you are interested in reading more diverse books.

  • Book Riot Community

    I loved this book about Jade, a teen girl growing up in a poor neighborhood in Oregon who attends a mostly-white private school. She is invited to an “at-risk” mentorship program called Women to Women, and Jade quickly figures out that just because her mentor is black doesn’t mean they can relate to each other. Jade’s voice is compelling and real, and the book is interspersed with gorgeous poetry (see Chapter 35, Things That are Black and Beautiful). The cover is also stunning – artwork done by ...more
