Like her mother, Georgia McCoy is an artist, but her dad looks away whenever he sees her with a sketchbook. Sometimes it's hard to remember what it was like when her mother was still alive . . . when they were a family . . . when they were happy. But then a few days after her 13th birthday, Georgia receives an unexpected gift--a strange, formal letter, all typed up and signed anonymous--granting her free admission to the Brandywine River Museum for a whole year. And things begin to change. An accessible novel in poems, Pieces of Georgia offers an endearing protagonist--an aspiring artist, a grieving daughter, a struggling student, a genuine friend--and the poignant story of a broken family coming together. From the Hardcover edition.

I thought this was a nice light read about a young teen girl that has a lot on her plate and how she copes and matures.

Excellent piece of writing. The novel is written in non-rhyming poetry, but it reads like a short story. Very touching, deals with long-term grief in a very realistic but positive manner.

I have days like that...when I want to pull up the covers / and make the world go away, / pretend no one will notice if I stay home.
