Pieces by Chris Lynch OPTIONAL

Lynch, Chris Pieces, 176 pgs, Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 2013. $16.99. Language: PG13 (19 Swears 0 Fs) Mature Content: PG13; Violence PG13.  

When Eric’s older brother dies suddenly, and his family donates his organs, Eric wants to “connect” with the pieces of his brother.  He arranges to meet 3 of the recipients, and in the following days he learns about his brother, himself, and what it means to work through your grief. 

An interesting character study involving a topic rarely written about.  Lots of innuendo, so I wouldn’t recommend this to younger than High School.   HS OPTIONAL Lisa Librarian
