 Pieces Of Georgia is the story of Georgia McCoy whose mother has died. Georgia is feeling disconnected from her father. She makes a new friend, Tiffany who is very involved with sports. Georgia and Tiffany don't have much in common because Georgia would rather sketch in her art book rather than play sports. Georgia's dad doesn't see her artistic side as he works most of the day and rarely returns home before Georgia is in bed. Georgia discovers that Tiffany is using pep-you-up pills from a drugstore to be able to play all her sports and manage at school. On Georgia's thirteenth birthday she receives an anonymous gift of a museum membership. Who sent it? How will Georgia cope without her mom? Can Georgia help Tiffany?

I could connect to this book because I am artistic like Georgia. Georgia was a good character because she cared about her friend. Georgia tells this story through her diary which gives the reader better insight into who she is as her diary is where she is able to freely express her thoughts and feelings.

I would recommend this book to those who love novels that aren't just happy but explore deeper issues. This book would be good for anyone who has lost a parent or another relative. I also recommend it to anyone who feels disconnected to one of his or her parents. This is my best read the year.
