Piecing Me Together
New York Times Bestseller
I am learning to speak.
To give myself a way out. A way in.
An inspiring and powerful story of a girl who belives she must get out of her poor neighborhood if she's ever going to succeed. Jade's mother tells her to take advantage of every opportunity that comes her way: every day she rides the bus awat from her friends and to the private school where she feels like an outsider, but where she has plenty of opportunities. But Woman to Woman, a mentorship program she joins on the promise of a scholarship, makes her feel tired of being singled out as someone who needs support, someone people want to fix. Jade wants to speak, to create, to express her jos and sorrows, her pain and her hope. Maybe there are some things she could show other women about understanding the world and finding opportunities to be real, to make a difference.
Be (your) best.
