Another Piece of my Heart by Jane Green
After a really rocky start – bad grammar, faulty time line, characters that change personality with the page numbers – Another Piece of My Heart finally finds a real story line by about page 100. A teenager who is selfish and troubled loses her grasp on her family’s love because of her parent’s divorce, her mother’s alcoholism and her father’s remarriage. Emily’s alcohol abuse, drug use, promiscuity and, finally, teen pregnancy nearly cause a permanent breach in the family.
I’m not going to tell you that at page 101 it suddenly becomes great literature – it doesn’t – but it is an acceptable chick lit book good for a few mindless days of reading. You will likely figure out the ending (by page 120) but if you are looking for an emotional love story about a marriage with teens and drama, you will like Another Piece of My Heart.
