Lennon Lennon from Maine Lennon from Maine with serious issues Lennon from Maine with serious issues who sews unravel meI expected to like this book when I started, but All Our Broken Pieces snuck up on me. I absolutely adored this story, I really connected to everything that was contained within the pages. There was heartbreak, and some very real hard truths, but there was also hope, acceptance and the sweetness of developing love. The book focuses on a girl battling her OCD and a boy fearful of what people see when they look at him, both struggling in different ways but with them isolated. When you break it down like that, the story could have had the potential to be dark and depressing but instead I found the book to be uplifting, cute and humorous, with some heart wrenching moments as well- just what I wanted without knowing it. Can I just butt in to my regularly scheduled review to tell you how much I love Lennon and Kyler together? They are just so adorable with their snarky text messages, ridiculous banter, dark humor and general random trivia, but more than that they are exactly what the other needed and the interactions between them just made me want to melt. Kyler is a closet romantic with the most wonderful of random tidbits and song lyrics that made me love him even more each time he wrote them.
Fact (definitely): Kyler Benton is a Breath Stealer. He's that beautiful. I know because I saw him.I don't know what kind of magic L.D. used, but I got lost in this story. All Our Broken Pieces is a pretty hefty book at over 400 pages, but I blew through it in a single afternoon. I found the flow of the plot to be easy to navigate and the characters to be engaging and I didn't want to put the book down. I cheered on Lennon and Kyler, loving all their broken pieces, and I found this to be an adorable story full of strength and challenges while at the same time sweet and light. I realize that I am rambling random love sentiments, but I just want to hug the book to my chest and force everyone to read it too. This is the perfect read for anyone who enjoys YA contemporary romances with real situations and mental health issues.
