On a cool autumn night, Annaliese Rose Gordon stumbled out of the woods and into a high school party. She was screaming. Drenched in blood. Then she vanished.
A year later, Annaliese is found wandering down a road hundreds of miles away. She doesn't know who she is. She doesn't know how she got there. She only knows one thing: She is not the real Annaliese Rose Gordon.
Now Annaliese is haunted by strange visions and broken memories. Memories of a reckless, desperate wish . . . a bloody razor . . . and the faces of other girls who disappeared. Piece by piece, Annaliese's fractured memories come together to reveal a violent, endless cycle that she will never escape—unless she can unlock the twisted secrets of her past.
This is one of the best suspense books I have read in quite a while! I read the summary of the story on the back cover and I couldn’t wait to start reading this story. By the 2nd chapter I was instantly hooked on the story and it felt like I couldn’t get enough of the characters and the plot. Before I knew it 3 ½ hours had passed from when I started the book and I was on chapter “Popping.” Another Little Piece is an edge of your seat read that I think anyone; man or woman, would enjoy and love to read! I really like “Annaliese” I felt like she was sure of herself, but at the same time she wasn’t sure of anyone else around her; especially her friends. I felt a little bad for “Annaliese’s” friends, because they were uncertain whether to believe her about her identity or not. By the end of Another Little Piece I was really surprised at the twist; I kept thinking I knew what would or was going to happen and then I would keep reading and I would be proven wrong each time.
I love the way Ms. Quinn wrote and put this book together; she made it hard to put the book down from the very beginning. I loved the main character and I especially loved the name she used for that character; “Annaliese” is different and a very pretty name, I like that she used to different name than what a lot of authors use for names. I enjoyed the way each chapter had a poem before it continued with the main part, but I found it a little confusing with the way some of the parts of the book were put together (i.e. Silence is Golden/Two Names/Make It Right.) Those were parts of one chapter and I found it to be that way through the entire novel, I felt that there shouldn’t have been that many sub-sections within the chapters. I’m glad the chapters were short and I found that it was rather easy to get through a lot of chapters fairly fast.
Since this is a novel geared more towards teens I think that will help keep them more interested and willing to get through the entire book. I would love to see an entire series based around the “Annaliese” character; I think it would be great to see everything that has happened prior to this story and even a few books on what she does after this one. I highly recommend this novel to men and women, mainly women from ages 15-50! Although this is Ms. Quinn’s first novel I think she is and will continue to be an amazing author and one to watch. I think any other books she writes will be just as good if not better than this one. I give Another Little Piece and Kate Karyus Quinn a “10.”
