A Must Read
“Do you remember your high school years? The smart girl that fades into the background? The jock who’s everyone’s friend? The beautiful and spoiled mean girl? In Falling, the first book in her Bits and Pieces series, Shirley Miranda weaves together a group of high school students to create a captivating tale of friendship, growth and discovery that’s hard to put down. I am definitely looking forward to future books in this series. ” – oeliza

A Promise of a Best Friend
“Peer into the life of a high school junior. As Shirley Miranda’s first novel she does a superb job in enticing the reader. Readers will be able to find “bits and pieces” of themselves in the characters, and will identify and relate to a nostalgic awkwardness of blossoming teen relationships. You don’t have to be in high school to get hooked on this book, because you will be pulled into the lives of Liz and her new friends.

The author draws from her career as a teacher and the observations she’s made over the years. Miranda intertwines that insight with Liz’s story and the subtleties of high school life to create a novel that is definitely infectious and will leave you wanting to read more about Liz and Patrick. ” – A.B.D.

Gripping and Brilliant
“This book is amazing. Definitely satisfies the reader who are looking for a real good read.

If anything, I’d like to say Shirley Miranda is brilliant and would definitely love to catch more of her stories!” – A.Es
