I am truly getting old. While reading ‘Pieces Of You And Me’ by Erin Fletcher, I kept shaking my head with the two protagonists – Chase and Rylee. While other people may think their story is the height of romance, all I can see is the beginnings of codependency and a real toxic relationship. These two people bring out the worst in each other – he makes her lie to her friends, she makes him drink. Where has my sense of romance gone to? But I have to hand it to Fletcher – this is not a white-washed story. She presents situations teenagers have to deal with in real life, warts and all, how they cope with parent’s divorce, and alcoholism. I think the problem is just me lately – I have gotten just a bit cynical. Maybe I need to be in a better mood and re read this.
