Pieces of Georgia – Jen Bryant

pieces of georgia

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.

This book is written in poetry, which makes it fun and quick to read.  I really liked the way that Georgia and her father’s relationship changes in the book.  It’s a beautiful story of a girl coming to know herself.  —  Jessica, Teen Librarian
