Pieces of Me: Who Do I Want to Be?
"This title refers to the 'pieces' that adoptees must identify, gather, and put together properly in order to make themselves whole. It is a compendium of poems, essays, drawings, quotations, and photos created by adoptees, from 12 to 60+, intended to 'offer practical insight and hope' to other adoptees. Each contributor is introduced in a brief biographical sketch that provides readers with background information that helps place each work in context… Although many contributors are adults, they focus on their experiences as teens. The raw emotions exposed here make this a rather painful, but extremely powerful read. — School Library Journal
