    One thought on “Break

    1. Clair on said:

      The premise for Break both horrified and fascinated me when I decided to finally check out Hannah Moskowitz s works Maybe I could set aside March as Moskowitz Month Hmm I d heard a lot of good things about Teeth, but I thought I d plunge into the deep end with Break any pun about Teeth being unintentional, believe me , and you know the funny thing The day after I bought it, I tripped over and broke one of my toes Then the next day, my dad slipped and rolled down a muddy embankment and badly brui [...]

      Holy ballsweat It s like a werewolf broke into my house and smashed the shit out of everything and then bought me dinner because GODDAMN, this book so owns my face now Fucking property of Hannah Moskowitz on my goddamn forehead.In a past review I decided Jay Bell s middle name was Fuck yeah, bitch and so I will bestow such an honor on Ms Moskowitz and from now on her middle name is I came here to fuck bitches.Artist s rendition So yeah, shit starts getting real because Jonah, the main character, [...]

      Did you know that when you break your bones, they grow back stronger Well that s what Jonah figures he d do Get stronger Since his life and the people in it is so messed up he figures that he ll be strong enough for all of themBasically BREAK is probably the strangest book I ve read thus far, but it s concept is crazy fascinating And then when the book is all said and done it hits something so deep that it makes you wonder if it s an issue that really happening This is a thought provoking book I [...]

    4. shady on said:

      It s definitely very strange to finish an author s latest book and then proceed to their debut straight after The six year gap is definitely clear in the writing, yes, but even despite that, Hannah Moskowitz never fails to impress me To put it bluntly, I just fucking love her goddamn books, man.

    5. Jennifer Sommersby on said:

      What were you doing during your junior year in high school Chasing boys Cheering on the home team Worrying about the perfect prom dress or if you were even going to make it to prom Fighting with your parents because of their crazy restrictive curfews I don t know what Hannah Moskowitz did to keep it real during eleventh grade And considering she s only nineteen, those days were, well, like, yesterday I know one thing she did do, though She got herself a little publishing deal with one of the big [...]

    6. Ava on said:

      If this book isn t proof that teenagers are fucking amazing, I don t know what is Hannah wrote this when she was in high school I am so impressed w her and w this book Wow It ll BREAK heh you, but it s worth it.

    7. Megan on said:

      Re posted from theturnedbrain The first thing that struck me about Break was how nice it was to read a YA book that didn t revolve around or devote a huge chunk of itself to romance Jonah already has a girlfriend, well, kind of , and while he likes her a whole heap he doesn t obsess over her or doubt her feelings or worry overmuch about the relationship or any of that standard YA jazz Break is a book hugely concerned with relationships, just not the teenagers in love kind.This a book about famil [...]

    8. Christina Wilder on said:

      I ll preface this review by saying that when I started reading as a young adult, the books that stood out were the ones that were well written Period It didn t matter if they were romance, horror, YA, kid lit, etc If the characters got in my head and made me care for them, the book had me in its clutches I m not fond of the philosophy that young people need to have watered down prose and plots Children and teenagers are smart and savvy, so talking down to them only makes you a square Break does [...]

    9. Corinne on said:

      This book knocked my socks off I don t even know where to begin because all I want to say is you need to read it.Jonah is on a mission to break every bone in his body, because everyone knows that broken bones heal back stronger and he needs to be strong Everything else in his life is absolute chaos He has one brother who is allergic to everything, a baby brother who doesn t stop crying literally , parents who seem to be hanging on by a string, and friends who have no idea why he is doing what he [...]

    10. Jaksen on said:

      Read this shortly after it came out as I met the author on a writer s site I promptly went out and got it.Intense and amazing I was most worried about the little brother though, and felt my focus shift to him and not the MC I kind of knew what was up with Jonah, who constantly breaks his bones so they ll re heal stronger, but the baby brother I kept reading hoping the baby would simply stay alive from one page to the next A quick read, a good read, from a truly unique writer.

    11. Kristi on said:

      Three words intense, fast paced, awesome What an incredible debut Moskowitz is an extremely talented writer Break was full of fantastically portrayed three dimensional characters and an insane central idea A goal to break every bone in your body How does that not pique your curiosity Well, it did mine and this lead to me completely devouring the entire novel in one setting Moskowitz did an outstanding job of creating that are relatable, they have problems, feelings, and circumstances that are ar [...]

    12. Alexa on said:

      3.5 starsAn interesting and unique read Easy and quick to get through.Jonah eventually figures out his reason for breaking his bones, but my reaction to it was probably similar to the psycologist s It was a strange reason and didn t entirely make sense to me Although, I can kind of see why Jonah would think it made sense Another thing, I didn t understand what was up with those people in the psych ward Why did they think that what Jonah did was so great It was creepy This book just made me feel [...]

      4.5 stars Blog Break a bone, grow a better body The worse you re hurt, the stronger you get WOW This was the first book I ve read of Hannah Moskowitz s and it did NOT disappoint Break was an easy read and it also rather rudely enjoyed toying with my feelings The minute I read the premise, my eyebrows shot up Who breaks bones for fun Well, ladies and gentlemen, let me present to you seventeen year old Jonah McNab.Break is about Jonah going on a bone breaking spree and his best friend, Naomi, is t [...]

    14. Tabitha Olson on said:

      When I first picked this book up, I was hooked Jonah s voice is so fresh and real, and the writing is sharp His relationship with his brother, Jesse, is heartfelt and strong In fact, all of the younger characters in this book are very real.The first two thirds of the story really pulled me in I was dying to find out why the baby brother, Will, cried so much I had to know about Jesse s allergies And, this question was burning a hole in the back of my mind what is Jonah going to do to make things [...]

    15. Alex Bennett on said:

      Even though I read and fell in love with two of Hannah Moskowitz s other books, I held off reading her debut, Break until very recently I honestly was just worried that I wouldn t love it as much as Invincible Summer and Gone, Gone, Gone, which are both by Hannah and are both absolute favorites of mine But I am happy to report that Break lived up to Moskowitz s other novels, and exceeded my expectations.All of Hannah Moskowitz s books focus heavily on family, especially sibling relationships I f [...]

    16. Jessica (Step Into Fiction) on said:

      I bought this book and Invicible Summer at the same by Hannah but I wanted to read this one first The concept really caught my attention As someone whose broken a few too many bones in her lifetimeI know the pain that comes with it I could never ever imagine doing it to myself on purpose, so I was intrigued view spoiler I m glad Jonas didn t get through breaking all the bones he was planning on breaking I don t know if I could ve lived through reading that lol The skateboarding accident to him t [...]

    17. Dichotomy Girl on said:

      This book is really really hard to rate On the one hand, it was well written I started it about 20 minutes until bedtime, and stayed up late to finish it On the other hand, I found that all of the characters pissed me off, for different, but spoiler y reasons view spoiler So Yeah, Jonah is messed up He s under a lot of stress for a teenage boy, and does a drastic thing to try and make himself stronger, to try to fix his family especially his brother Jesse But his friend Naomi She is the one who [...]

    18. Megan on said:

      The main character in Break and I virtually have nothing in common, except for our ages I m a seventeen year old writing girl who doesn t swear and is absolutely too terrified to get in any likely bone breaking situationsd Jonah is a boy with a complicated mess of a home life, the pressures of his world on his shoulders, and a habit of intentionally breaking bones Nevertheless, I found him tremendously sympathetic and compelling This book really explores the burden of the responsibility he feels [...]

    19. Tasha on said:

      Authored by a senior in high school, this debut novel would make a veteran author proud Jonah worries about a lot He worries about his parents, worries about the fact his baby brother cries all the time, but most of all he worries about his younger brother, Jessie, who is severe and life threatening allergies After being hurt in a car accident, Jonah has started trying to break every bone in his body to make himself stronger He is helped by his best friend, Naomi, who films him breaking his bone [...]

    20. Tom Franklin on said:

      BREAK is a story about a family, each of is broken in very different ways It s a difficult book to read on many levels and a brilliant book given that Hannah Moskowitz was still in high school when she wrote it.The narrator, the oldest son, Jonah, feels responsible for protecting his younger, highly allergic, brother from all of the environmental and food elements that can kill him There s a baby who cries incessantly and his mindlessly religious parents are quick to lash out verbally at one ano [...]

      Dammit, where do I even start with this story I loved it I don t have that much to say about it, but that doesn t mean I loved it any less I just cannot find the words to say how much this story touched me It s one of those slow building, soul crushingly beautiful contemporary stories about brotherhood, family, pain and yes, love It stole my heart Broke me down I loved Jonah and his relationships with Jesse I adored Jesse I loved Jonah s mission twisted and sickening as it was The writing was go [...]

    22. Julie on said:

      Moskowitz is a talented young writer who effectively conveys teenage angst in a confident voice Jonah purposely breaks his bones as a coping mechanism to his brother Jesse s severe food allergies Believing that his bones will heal stronger is his way of controlling the stress of his family, which includes a constantly ill Jesse, a screaming infant brother and feuding parents But when the people who care about him find out his injuries are self inflicted, Jonah has to face the repercussions of hi [...]

    23. evilqueen21 on said:

      It frightens me to think that if by some chance I had not received an arc of Invincible Summer, I would ve never discovered Hannah s awesomeness I loved IS and can now say Break is equally made of awesome I know Hannah has said she s never really considered writing a sequal to any of her books correction only recently the exception of possibly a retelling of IS from a diff pov but seriously Break begs to be countinued with my prefrence of Jesse s pov So I have to put this out there Dearest Hanna [...]

    24. Claire on said:

      Hannah Moskowitz is a a teenage Chuck Palahniuk Her debut novel, BREAK, is clever, intense, and highly emotional Absolutely one of the most original novels I ve ever read.

    25. Rachael on said:

      Some teens play sports Other drink and party But Jonah breaks bones his own Sure, it hurts, but broken bones always grow back stronger, and that s what s important Jonah s on a mission to break every bone in his body, because he wants to be stronger It s not because of his younger brother, who s severely allergic to practically every food and thus frequents the ER too many times It s not because of his parents, who can barely handle their own affairs, let along anyone else s it s not because of [...]

      Her sneakers make bubble gum smacks against the pavement on her way to me I choke out a sweaty, clogged piece of laughter She waits while I pant, my head against my skinned knee Colors explode in the back of my head The pain s almost electric I expand and burst in a thousand little balloons Break by Hannah MoskowitzI am not a comtemporary YA kind of girl I didn t read it when I was of the age to be considered YA, and I don t often read it now I ve always found the resolutions dissatisfying, the [...]

    27. U.L. Harper on said:

      Here s the thing with Break First off it s a great read The language is wonderful and the timing is great I think this is young adult novel That thought is neither here nor there but I thought I d state it anyway The pacing is almost spot on as well Aside from that the author seems to be wise beyond her years Hannah Moskowitz does a great job adding interesting information to the story at times when you don t expect it Refreshing This is a clever read as well Our protagonist, is clearly defined [...]

    28. Kristin on said:

      Why yes, this book IS just as aweosme as it sounds Thank you for asking.Jonah is one of the most complicated MCs I ve read in a long time in a good way It would have been so easy to make him a vehicle for the plot, a boy who s into self mutilation for no reason other than to drive the story forward But Hannah has the incredible ability to make the reader fully understand Jonah s actions which is no small feat when you re reading about a boy diving into an empty swimming pool.I especially loved t [...]
