Waiting on...Break by Hannah Moskowitz

Waiting on Wednesday: Break by Hannah Moskowitz

The first feeling is exhilaration.
The second feeling is pain.
The feeling that never comes is regret.

Jonah is on a mission to break every bone in his body. Everyone knows that broken bones grow back stronger than they were before. And Jonah wants to be stronger—needs to be stronger—because everything around him is falling apart. Breaking, and then healing, is Jonah's only way to cope with the stresses of home, girls, and the world on his shoulders. This is the story of his self-destructive spiral, his rock-bottom moment, and how he finally learns to accept help and find true strength through recovery.

My Thoughts: First off, can I mention that Hannah is about 18 or 19 now? I'm not entirely sure about the exact age, but definitely around how old I am. I just think that's insane but it's great.

Moving on...the book sounds great, doesn't it? I love reading "tough issue" type books and this one is definitely unique. I've read books where people cut themselves, but to actually go and break your bones? That's something completely new and I have to say, I'm really excited. I think it sounds like a really thought-provoking, interesting novel and I can't wait to check it out. Congrats to Hannah on her first release! I hope she does really well.

Out: August 25, 2009
