BLOG TOUR: My POV of ALL THE BROKEN PIECES by Cindi Madsen

Published December 11th 2012 by Entangled Teen
All the Broken Pieces

What if your life wasn’t your own?

Liv comes out of a coma with no memory of her past and two distinct, warring voices inside her head. Nothing, not even her reflection, seems familiar. As she stumbles through her junior year, the voices get louder, insisting she please the popular group while simultaneously despising them. But when Liv starts hanging around with Spencer, whose own mysterious past also has him on the fringe, life feels complete for the first time in, well, as long as she can remember.

Liv knows the details of the car accident that put her in the coma, but as the voices invade her dreams, and her dreams start feeling like memories, she and Spencer seek out answers. Yet the deeper they dig, the less things make sense. Can Liv rebuild the pieces of her broken past, when it means questioning not just who she is, but what she is?

My POV 
You would think hearing two different voices in your head automatically makes you insane but what if it’s not just your imagination or a hallucination. What if it’s the clues you need to find out who you truly are?

Liv has woken up from a coma to a world that’s mostly fresh and new. From not knowing her own name to becoming a public high school student again this is not an easy journey.  She struggles with the insecurities of her looks (because of the scars) to agoraphobia but she finds the strength and determination to get back into the world and become a social butterfly.
That is where she meets Spencer. A recluse it seems until Liv wiggles her way into his guilt-ridden life. It was a very bumpy start for these two. A I-can’t-help-but-accidently-running-into-your-jerky-face kind of start. He’s always so rude to her but she soon finds out he has secrets of his own and his rudeness is the way to keep people at a distance.
Their friendship begrudgingly turns into a high school romance. It’s the small things that Spencer does for her that make their relationship so sweet. But there are still skeletons in the closet for both of them until the very end.
As for the characters themselves, Olivia’s “Liv” innocents maker her so likable. I found myself feeling like I need to protector her at time because she just didn’t know about simple little things. She has to relearn almost everything. Spencer is someone you feel like you want to avoid at first. But once you get pass his wall you see that he’s fun and caring.
Throughout this whole book I was scared to get to the bottom of the whole mystery. It was kind of a dreadful feeling and I was biting on my lip the whole time worrying. I like the end but for some reason I want to know how Jace and/or Courtney moved on. I’m wondering if there would ever be a novella clearing the air about some characters and situations. I’m crossing my fingers. For a good mystery romance pick this one up guys. It will keep you on your toes!

"Who were you talking to?" Mom asked.
"His name's Spencer." Live Looked out the window and watched him ride his bike away. "He's..." annoying, fustrating, cute, occasionally nice..."In my math class."

"The past is done, and we can't change it. All we can do is try to be better. What really matters is who you are now."

"It's like I've got all the pieces, but none of them fit together. The more I try to make them, the more broken I feel."
