All the Broken Pieces


All the Broken Pieces is a novel in verse about Matt Pin, a boy from Vietnam who was airlifted out of the country during the war.  Although he is now living in a loving, adoptive home in the United States, he is haunted by the secrets and memories he left in his home country.  As he struggles with life and school in the U.S., he is finally forced to confront his past.  
All the Broken Pieces provides a realistic view of the Vietnam War and how it profoundly affected lives in the 1970s - those who did not serve, those who served and came back differently, both mentally and physically, and those who carried hatred and blame for the most unpopular war in U.S. history.    This book is currently nominated for the young adult Golden Sower Award.
