That’s how long I’ve been gone. Since I left my best friend—the girl I loved—behind.
That's how long it takes to realize I am completely, utterly, screwed. Because now that I’m back, my childhood crush has turned into so much more.
Rylee has changed. We both have. And now I’m drawn to her in a completely different way. To her smile. Her touch. To reliving old memories and making new ones. To the happiness she’s always given me that I haven’t felt since I left.
But her friends are hell-bent on keeping us apart. My dad is one drink away from destroying both of our lives, and maybe I am, too. It’s only a matter of time before I have to leave again, and there’s nothing I can do to stop it. I never get a choice.
The one choice I can make? Stay away from Rylee. Because if I don’t, I’ll break her heart—and mine—all over again.

** I received an advanced readers copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!**
Pieces of You and Me was a super quick and easy book to read. I easily had it done in one afternoon sitting. Although I am no longer a young adult and haven't been for some time, I was still able to enjoy and appreciate it.
Reading this book took me back to my teenage years. I remember the feeling of liking someone that was just out of reach and how problems seemed so much bigger and more complicated than they actually were. Now I am a mother of two teenage girls and I see them as they try to navigate the dating field. This book reminded me of it all.
First of all, I will mention that this book is pretty squeaky clean, making it appropriate for even the youngest of YA fans. It deals a little with addiction and there is some swearing and kissing involved but no sex or graphic details to make it messy.
I am a sucker for friends to lover (or boyfriend/girlfriend in this case) stories so I was behind Rylee and Chase the whole time. I loved how they were the best of friends in middle school and got each other through the most awkward of times. When Chase returned in high school I was giving a silent cheer and I was flying through the pages in the hopes that they would find their way back to each other. I won't lie...Chase did get on my nerves from time to time and I wanted to shake some sense into him but I did like him.
In the end, Pieces of You and Me was a super cute young adult romance that I thoroughly enjoyed. I'm sure that fans of the genre will eat this up.
