Sinopsis: Raw, riveting and real, Broken into Pieces is a rollercoaster ride into the shattered lives of a teenager and his family. Following the toxic cocktail of youthful invincibility, a hot sports car and booze combined with a freak ice storm, Ron’s car accident forever alters his future. This book is a fictionalized account of Ron Evans’ true story. Ron’s mother, Janice Evans, tells the story of this family’s hellish journey through denial and despair as she finds herself unable to deal with her son’s irreversible spinal cord injury, brain injury and, following his release from hospital, his downward spiral into drug addiction. As she searches for answers she realizes that she must accept the fact that the son she once knew and loved will never come home again. Her struggle leads her and Ron to acceptance and finally to hope. When asked if he had any objection to the publication of his story, Ron pointed to his wheelchair. “Take a good look at me. If by telling my story, one kid is saved from making the same stupid mistakes I did then it will be worth it.”
