I was surprised by how much I loved Pieces. The Breakaway ended well and I didn't feel like it needed a sequel. Pieces surprised me with how it continued Naomi's story in such a realistic way. I struggled with Naomi's passiveness. It took me a while to come to terms with that. When I did I was able to fall into the wonderful story of Naomi learning to be free in her heart as well as in her head.
