Pieces of Why; K.L. Going

Pieces of WhyPieces of Why by K. L. Going
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The cover doesn't match the book: the model looks older than I felt Tia is (she's 12, but I get the sense she's younger than her years). As for the rest, it was surprising that Tia had never Googled or looked up her father and what he did, because if you're curious in this day and age, isn't that what you do? The resolution with her mother felt a little fast - people don't change that quickly, even if they mean to! Tia's life as a poor white living in what appears to be a mostly black community in NOLA did feel real and highlights a population that many may not remember exists.
