Synopsis: Very Sales-Woodruff is done being a good girl. Done being the only responsible one in a family that’s unraveling. Done being the obliging girlfriend in a relationship that’s sinking. Done saying no to what she wants—like Dominic, her rebellious classmate.
With her mom’s drinking, her dad’s extended absences from home, and her younger sister, Ramona, running wild, the path Very has always seen for herself doesn’t seem to matter anymore. At the same time, Very’s grandmother, a poet known less for her work and more for her exploits with the likes of Andy Warhol and Arthur Miller, is slipping away.
If everything else can fall to pieces, why can’t she?
Thoughts: This was one of those books I was very 'meh' about. I didn't like the characters, the plot, or anything at all actually. I don't even know how I got through it. I found Very to be a very boring character, even when she goes a little rebellious. There was nothing special about Dominic, her "relationship" with him and I didn't get why they even liked each other.
Honestly, Very in Pieces was disappointing and I wish I hadn't pushed through to finish it because I never felt like it got better or that I enjoyed it more.
