Little Pieces of Me : A Novel


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

It's Paige Meyer's birthday but she isn't in a celebratory mood; this is the second year since her father passed away. Her loving fiancé and best friends refuse to allow her to wallow this year away, too. While searching for a new job, Paige is notified that she has a match on a DNA testing website, stating that they have found her father, a man she has never met--and they are sure it is a match. This new development strains Paige's relationship with her mother; Paige's anger grows while Betsy Meyer refuses to speak on the topic, except to consistently insist that Mark Meyer--and no one else--was Paige's father. Paige reaches out to her "DNA Dad," Andy Abrams, for answers. Alternating time lines reveal Betsy's secrets and how keeping them has affected her relationship with her daughter. Still, with a colorful cast of friends, Paige discovers who she is and who she wants to be. This hurt- and love-filled novel will enthrall fans of women's fiction like Private Lies by Muna Shehadi (2020).

"Congratulations! We've added a new leaf to your family tree." When 43-year-old Paige Meyer receives an email from ancestry site, she's sure it's a mistake. She's still grieving the loss of her beloved father--she always felt like she'd "won the dad lottery," but now he's gone. Her mother is distant--Paige is sure it's because her surprise pregnancy with Paige ended her college education. With the death of her father, Paige has lost her kindred spirit. But the email says she has a paternal match--Andy Anderson, a well-known artist who attended the college and belonged to the same Jewish student group as her parents. Maybe that's where Paige got her artistic talent, and she has his eyes and smile. Now she knows why she's always felt like a foreigner in her own family. But uncovering the truth proves difficult. As Paige navigates her new reality, she's surprised to discover the secrets her mother and Andy have each kept for the other. VERDICT Hammer's second novel (after You and Me and Us) explores the true meaning of family in a timely, thought-provoking story of identity and self-discovery.--K.L. Romo, Duncanville, TX
