All the Broken Pieces (YA) (4.5/5)

All the Broken Pieces (YA) (4.5/5)

A verse novel, this book tells the story of Matt Pin, a teenager whose childhood was in Vietnam during the Vietnam War. He faces prejudice in school, hurt feelings of his mom sending him away, and guilt about leaving his younger brother behind. Matt begins to participate in a Vietnam Vets support group and his caring adoptive parents, baseball coach and music instructor help him sort out his feelings about things. A good read.
