    One thought on “Broken Point

    1. Kris Richards

      I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.First off, this book is pitched for MG readers, but I do feel that those who enjoy YA and traditional writing on that later would appreciate this book There are scenes and characters that strike chords with adults and show us just how wrong we adults can be at times.While the MCs are young the difficulties they suffer are situations that a person of any age could find some comparison and understanding to I liked the fact we have a [...]

    2. Brandy M Miller

      This work was a refreshing read It s aimed toward tweens, but I think it would probably be enjoyable for just about any age The characters are very distinctive and each has a definitive voice I could relate to two children who are both gifted and hurting at the same time, and I think the author does a great job of helping readers to really experience life through the eyes of the children.

    3. Book Reader

      I don t usually write reviews but I am not sure how this book got so many good reviews This is not a very good book at all It is an interesting concept of two children who are displaced from their home by an overbearing and compulsive mother and have to find a way to adjust However, the writing is so poor that it is difficult for the reader to even know what is going on I think the plot is supposed to have twists and turns but because of the low quality of writing, it comes across as confusing a [...]

    7. Amy Adams

      I so wanted to love this book I thought the idea of the story was fantastic, and I found myself sympathizing with the characters However, I was progressively frustrated, upset, and angered by the following 1 The writing is bulky, cumbersome, and laborious You have to read the same thing written three different ways The characters go back and forth but do not seem to get anywhere, as they produce the same arguments over and over See what I did there 2 There s not a natural flow to the conversatio [...]

      I found this book to be very smart and imaginative much like the characters it contains Steuart and Sam move away from home with their mother and they are not happy about the change Both kids are very precocious and unique in their own manner Through Steuart we are able to reimagine what childhood is like and explore the quirky world in their minds together Everyone of Steuart s dreams and stories are deeply imaginative and one can see how diverse his universe is His sister Sam finds interest in [...]

    10. Abby

      I won this book from the giveaways It is a very interesting book with very endearing characters Sam and Steuart both seem mature for their age Their adoptive mother is some sort of control freak And not a nice one This book has many unexpected twists and turns that make it even better In a way I can relate to Sam and Steuart because I have moved so many times too, and know what it is like This helped me understand what they were going through.

      I won this through a First Reads giveaway I just finished reading this book, and I have to say, I am angry and disappointed by the ending However, I did like the main idea of the story It was unique and interesting The story revolves around two very interesting children Steuart, who loves anagrams, and Sam, who is obsessed with colors They are both the adoptive children of Olivia DuBoise, one of the most horrible women ever to call herself a mother Soon after moving to a new town, Olivia takes t [...]

    13. Jo

      The story idea was good, and the writing was nice, but I was unable to find this novel interesting The characters were very inconsistent and one dimensional I couldn t finish the book I gave up around 150 pages, over halfway, because it still hadn t interested me I m a hard to please reader, though, and I think the authors do have potential for good novels in the future.

    14. Maggie

      The plot was so confusing I had to consistently go back and reread It was just a very tedious read Won from Giveaway
