Beautifully written, extraordinarily powerful, One Two wins the 2017
Millennium Book Award
One second, seventeen-year-old Corinne has everything. Her life. Family. Friends. Boyfriend. But in that one second, she loses it all. Now she’s left with harrowing nightmares. Hallucinations. And panic attacks that seem to come out of nowhere. She tries everything to take the pain away, but there’s only one option she sees as a true way out. Sent to live in a psychiatric institution, she doesn’t want to talk. It’s pointless. They can’t help her. But slowly Corinne opens up and wants to remember what it’s like to be happy, so she begins reliving her past life to her doctor. She knows she can’t live in the past, but she sees no future and is faced with the hardest decision of her life.
Powerful and compelling, Pieces Of Me is the enthralling new novel from author Carrigan Richards, an unforgettable telling that delves into the adolescent mind to explore issues of loss, grief, depression and the remnants of a shattered life. A life marred by secret trauma and the raging broil of emotions that linger long after the event. Insightfully observed and captured in flowing thematic prose, Richards ably manifests the world into which her young protagonist is thrust, disarmingly rendering the isolation of time and place, whilst a palpable sense of emotion resonates throughout her pages. Penned with a deft touch, her ear for dialogue is impeccable and imbues her characters with an aura of authenticity that truly sets her tale apart.
Beautifully written, poignant and thought provoking, Pieces Of Me is not only entertaining, but provides a haunting glimpse of trauma in the adolescent mind. Sure to win much applause for author Carrigan Richards, it is recommended without reservation.
