Gabi, a Girl in Pieces

Cover: 'Gabi, a Girl in Pieces'

Staff Review: "Gabi, a Girl in Pieces" by Isabel Quintero


Entering her senior year of high school, Gabi, a Mexican-American girl, tries to make sense of her teenaged world. Gabi's life is not short of drama: her best friend Cindy is pregnant, her other best friend Sebastian just got kicked out of his parents house after coming out, her dad is addicted to meth, and Gabi feels shamed for being a girl by her over-bearing Mexican mother. The book is told through Gabi's journal entries and is hilarious and heart-breaking at the same time. Recommended for any teens looking for a funny, intelligent, finding-your-place type of book.

Audience: teens | Genre: fiction, award-winning, morris award winner
