Blog 3- A Million Little Pieces

                                      I enjoyed the turn out of A Million Little Pieces by James Frey even though it was a surprise. I like how James has become! He pulls himself out of the darkness even though the girl in his past tries to contact him. By burning the pictures she sent, James shows that he is distancing his old, bleak life from his new, sober one. I was also surprised that right after he left the clinic, he ordered Jack Daniels and proceeded to pour it out! This surprised me because I thought he would instantly revert back to his old ways. Also I was taken aback by the deaths of Lily and Leonard! My prediction of Lily and James actually going through with their plan to live in Chicago was sadly wrong. Overall this book left me satisfied and it is rewarding to the reader that James remains sober today!
