Olivia wakes up from a coma with no memories and tubes in her arms, with only her parents sparse recollection of a terrible car crash as an explanation for what happened. With two distinct voices arguing in her head, and confusing dreams that blur the lines between who she was before the accident - Olivia realises she must work out the truth without the help of her parents, who only seem to keep secrets from her. When she meets Spencer, a mysterious loner at school, she becomes drawn to him and begins a romance I swooned over page after page.
All The Broken Pieces had me gripped from the first pages, dying to know what happened to her in the past and how it was going to play out. From the very beginning, there is a strong sense of unease in the writing, echoing Olivia's current state of mind and as the reader, we're left not knowing who to trust. This was one of my favourite aspects of the book as it is hard to achieve as a writer, but Madsen managed it flawlessly. I will definitely be reading more of Cindi Madsen's work, as I would strongly recommend her and this book to all.
