All the Broken Pieces by Ann E. Burg

“Hey! Watch it Frogface.”

“Because of you, my brother is dead.”

The words echo in Matt Pin’s mind everywhere he goes. Some people openly stare and sneer at him; others won’t even look at him. To many people, he is an unwelcome reminder of the Vietnam War. Airlifted out of war torn Saigon, Matt has been given a second chance in life, a chance to try to live a normal childhood safely in the United States.

However, as the son of Vietnamese woman and American soldier he never knew, Matt isn’t sure where he belongs. He often thinks of his mother and younger brother, as well as a terrible secret that he was forced to leave behind. Would his new family still want him if they knew the truth?

Turning to baseball and music, Matt struggles to find peace and acceptance in this vivid and compelling verse novel.
