ALL THE BROKEN PIECES
A NOVEL IN VERSE BY:
Ann E. Burg
This story is about a boy named Matt Pin that has been air lifted out of Vietnam. He is now haunted by bombs, by the family, and the terrible secret he left behind. Matt’s dad loves baseball and Matt has a wicked arm and tries out for the baseball team and becomes the pitcher. Matt eventually goes and meets veteran soldiers and one of them even becomes his baseball coach.
Overall the book was good. I thought she added a nice ending and it was my favorite part of the book. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes books in verse and even if you haven’t read one before. I would recommend trying it out.
