Esther made mistakes, but never in math. She sinned, and now her entire family wants to move to avoid them and to forget. But Esther can never forget, and she doesn’t believe she will ever be able to until she meets Color, Beth, Moss and Jesús. With her new friends, she now knows that forgetting is impossible but she can move forward, even if that means leaving everything that she thought she knew about herself behind.

Let me ask you a question. Did any of you have an English teacher in High School who ruined you by making you read the book ‘Orbiting Jupiter’? Because I did, and it was hell. But for those of you who share my pain, let me tell you something that should hopefully lift your spirits. This is not the same book. Although, in the beginning, I was sorely tempted to just shut down this book and never try to read any more of it, because I was convinced I was reliving my High School nightmares, I persevered and soon learnt that this was not the case.

I did think that the end, at around 90%, the ending was rushed, as the characters suddenly had so much to fulfil. I also struggle to believe that Tom, the stepfather, was as indifferent as he seemed. It would have been great if the characters were more invested in the ending. It appeared to me that the author was trying to show how quickly life moves but there is a difference between pace and being rushed.  

Overall, I really enjoyed this coming of age novel that explores quite a few things that teenagers today are experiencing more and more. If you want a good novel with many complex and thought-provoking twists and ‘math problems’ then I wholeheartedly recommend ‘the Infinite pieces of Us’.
