“Hammer’s second novel (after You and Me and Us) explores the true meaning of family in a timely, thought-provoking story of identity and self-discovery.” — Library Journal (starred review)

In LITTLE PIECES OF ME, Paige Meyer gets an email from a DNA testing website announcing that her father is a man she never met. She’s convinced there must be a mistake, but as she digs deeper into her mother’s past and her own feelings of being the odd child out growing up, Paige begins to question everything she thought she knew. Could this be why Paige never felt like she fit in her family, and why her mother always seemed to keep her at an arm’s length? And what does it mean for Paige’s memories of her father, a man she idolized and whose death she is still grieving?
