ADD TO GOODREADS
Katie Summers is a fifteen-year-old girl with a bad attitude, which has been brought on mostly by her parents' divorce.
Katie blames her mother for divorcing her father and has decided to become as much of a problem child as possible in order to punish her mother. But when Katie meets a little girl named Emily, things start to turn around for the better. Emily teaches not just Katie, but us all about how precious life is.
Author Allen S. Long lives in his hometown of Graham, Texas, where he writes constantly. He received his diploma in creative writing in 2007 from Stratford Career Institute, and has been writing ever since. He's convinced he was always a writer, he just didn't know it. He enjoys nothing more than creating worlds and characters to entertain all the readers around the world, and sincerely hopes that you enjoy reading his stories every bit as much as he enjoyed writing them.
Broken is a sweet, simple and super easy to read book. It tells the story of Katie, a typical 15-year-old girl who is suffering because of her parents' divorce and who choose to act all rebel to deal with all the things she cannot manage. But that's not all, the story includes sub-stories: a sweet little kid called Emily, a teacher with an absent father, a depressed teenage boy and a sister who also has things to learn for herself.
The book is really easy to read given the language that it is simple and clean. The author writes a story that sounds like everyday life and it's easy to feel related to it. There is no major drama and we can see where the story is going. We can read about what each character needs to solve and how each one helps the other somehow.
I enjoyed because it was a story that left me feeling good and light, it was something that didn't leave me waiting for more or stress out by cliffhangers.
If you are looking for a read just for relaxing and remember some life lessons we all know but tend to forget, this one is a good choice.
