Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter

Pieces of Her

Title: Pieces of Her
Author: Karin Slaughter
Published: 2018

A shooting at a mall food-court turns into a life-changing event for Andrea Oliver when her mother, Laura, responds to the attacker in a wholly unexpected manner.  Andrea can't believe what she has witnessed and suddenly wonders if she knows her mother at all.  Andrea, a very inept 30-year old woman, is immediately thrust into a situation where she must adapt quickly and handle things by herself in order to stay alive.  One of my favorite things about this book was Andrea's transformation.  This character transforms from someone, who at 30 is still not able to kind of manage her own life at an almost unbelievable level; into a very strong, independent character by the end of the book.  Karin Slaughter is one of my favorite authors.  I definitely recommend this stand-alone novel for fans.  Looking for other Karin Slaughter novels? Try her Will Trent series, highly recommended!
