Title: Pieces of Camden
Author: Yessi Smith
Genre: New Adult
From the outside Camden had everything a child could ask for but what hid behind his door was something else. The only thing Camden could count on was the support of his best friend Yani. She and her family offered a safe haven for the abused little boy and after one horrific night her family home became his.
After years of being safe and knowing the love and support of peek who care, Camden's past makes a appearance. Such a appearance that soon sends him off the deep end and the only thing he can think to do is leave. It's the only way to protect the ones he loves, Yani and her family.
But when years go by and Camden is riddled with addiction, he and Yank are reunited. However not everything is what it seems. Both are broken in their own ways. Each hold their own set of secrets but something seems to pull them back together. Can Camden fight his demons while being back with Yani? Or will his actions and the truth destroy everything?
Please know that this book does have lapses in time that take us readers on a journey through Camden and Yani's childhood. It is also written in both of the main characters point of view, so get the opportunity to see into what each are thinking. The supporting characters are fantastic and how they welcome and embrace Camden is heartfelt. There are many topics that may be hard for some readers but the story wouldn't be what it is if Yessi tackle such hard subjects. So if you can get over them this is definitely a book to pick up.
