    Book Review: All the Broken Pieces by Cindi Madsen

    All the Broken Pieces By Cindi Madsen December 11, 2012 Ages 15 and up Entangled Publishing   JENNA’S REVIEW At its core, ALL THE BROKEN PIECES by Cindi Madsen is a mystery. The author gives us little glimpses, piece by piece, into solving the overall puzzle, while we join the main character in what is, on the surface, a contemporary romance. Whether you want it to be more of a mystery or more of a romance with lots of teenage angst will determine your overall enjoyment of the book.

For me, that is a very, very good thing. ALTERED kept me on the edge of my seat – with endless WTF?! moments constantly catching me off guard. I enjoyed it immensely! Warning: This review…
