Pieces of Love by PJ Sharon

Release Date: June 21, 2014, Page Count: 289, Age Recommendation: 13+ Sixteen year-old Alexis Hartman wants nothing more than to play her guitar and get high, hoping to escape the pain of losing her sister. But when her second arrest for pot possession leads to her mother’s breakdown, Lexi is sent to stay with her grandmother for the summer. While embarking on a Mediterranean cruise hardly sounds like punishment, being forced to face her demons and falling for a guy she may never see again gives Lexi a chance to discover what it means to love someone—even when you have to let them go.

Great Read! Really makes you think about the choices in life. Alexis had lost her dad and sister way to early in life. Her mom was suffering from a mental breakdown and Alexis thought everything was her fault. When she got into trouble for the second time she was shipped off to spend the summer with her grandmother, Maddie. 

 Maddie is full of life and living out her days in California. Lexi as only been with her grandmother for a few hours before she finds herself in trouble again!!! Maddie decides to take Lexi with her on a cruise...not just any cruise....a three week Mediterranean cruise! Man did I miss out when I got in trouble at age 16! The reader gets to travel along with Maddie and Lexi on their trip and it sounds amazing! Of course there is some romance involved when Lexi meets Ethan, the only other young person on the cruise. 

Will Ethan be able to help Lexi see the best in herself?! Will they become a couple or go their separate ways?! I give this one 4 stars!
