Georgia McCoy is an aspiring artist, striving to follow in the footsteps of her mother, who died six years ago of pneumonia. Although Georgia is very good at art she struggles in the other subjects at school, and her shy personality gives her an outcast status among the other kids at school.
When the high school counselor gives Georgia a blank journal, and encourages her to write in it every day, she has no idea what to fill it with. But then an anonymous person sends her a gift membership to the local Brandywine Art Museum. Through studying the works of art there Georgia comes to learn more about art, and gradually, more about herself as well.
“Pieces of Georgia” has a writing style that makes it truly unique. The lines of text in the book are broken into a lyrical, prose poetry style that well suits the voice of its shy and lonely character. Bryant also does an excellent job of capturing human characteristics and emotions. I really enjoyed reading “Pieces of Georgia” and I would recommend it as a meaningful and powerful book for your own reading enjoyment.
