* I received an ebook in exchange for an honest review. *  From the very first page Author Kira Adams takes the book and reels you in - The book opens when Peyton is at her lowest point, following her attempted suicide.  No one saw it coming but yet there it is. No one but her family knows what happened and Peyton isn't ready to share, but there was that guy that she saw....yep that is how fast you are hooked and unwilling to put the book down. I started this in the early morning and finished it the next day, I could not force myself to stop reading, there was just no good stopping point.  The plot flowed so smoothly and seamlessly and the characters became your friends after the first few chapters. The author did an amazing job with the characters. I loved Jace and Peyton, I thought that I liked Colton and Noah and I knew that I just didn't like Jax at all. It felt like I was a part of the story and that I was back in the halls of the high school with them. Author Kira Adams has perfected the voice.mind of a teenage girl and all of the drama and angst that comes along with them.  She was able to make the reader relive their high school years whether they wanted to or not. She had the requisite "bully", the best friends and the love life that others enjoyed speculating about.  She even had the weight issues, the sister issues and then Peyton found her niche.  She found out that she could sing and make it as a singer and that changed everything, especially her outlook on life.   Author Kira Adams takes a story and gives you the good, the bad and the ugly and the reader loves it - she talks about those situations that other authors try to avoid and it works - she is great at it! I love the realness of her stories and situations and I love the fact that nothing is off limits.  She takes a hard topic and relates it in a way that the reader can understand and appreciate.  I look at some things from a whole new perspective now that I have read this author's books - I love her style of writing and her topics and I am looking forward to reading much more by her in the future!  She is an amazing author and I am so glad that I found her!  Make sure you add this and all of her other books to your TBR list - you won't be sorry!  Enjoy this one and her others, they are a can't miss! ***Review has been done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official.***

 Holy cow, y'all. Kira Adams has blown me away with Pieces of Me. I loved everything about this book. It's so real. There was an almost instantaneous connection between Peyton and myself. She struggles with so much, and I identified with her. I saw myself in Peyton. It was so easy to cheer her on and follow her story because of this.    There are sprinklings of romance all over this book. The way that it finally comes together in the end left me with a ridiculous grin on my face. Like I said, I was totally team Peyton. My heart ached with hers, but I loved the way that Kira told her story. The romance is perfect and it's so fitting for this story. It was sweet at times and hard at times. Just like real life.    I've been a fan of Kira Adams for awhile, but Pieces of Me took that to a whole new level. I'm so glad that she decided to tell the story of Peyton. And I cannot wait to follow Peyton's story with the rest of this series!  **I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review with no compensation.

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Kira Adams.) This was an interesting story about one girl’s battle with low self-esteem, and peer pressure. Peyton was an interesting character, and she really did grow so much over the course of the book. I felt quite sorry for her at the beginning of the book because of the way she was bullied at school, but as the book progressed she did let her own ideas about how people saw her, hold her back from doing what she wanted to do. Peyton always seemed like quite a lonely person, but it was questionable at the end whether this was by default, or by choice. The storyline in this was quite varied, and seemed to cover quite a long period of time. We started with Peyton’s struggles following her attempted suicide, but then moved on to Peyton’s love life, and her future career in the music business. I did feel like it was a little difficult to really put a finger on what the strongest storyline was at points, but the story was entertaining none the less. There was some romance, although it was a big change for Peyton to go from being fat and unpopular to having guys fighting over her! Again she let her own ideas about her body influence her romantic relationships though, which was a bit of a shame. The ending was okay, and I was glad that Peyton finally seemed to be getting a happy ending. It will be interesting to see what happens to Peyton in the next book in the series. Overall; interesting story about peer pressure, and self-awareness, 7 out of 10.
