Their relationship was complex and convincing. But it is definitely full on! But disturbing, as well. For a debut author, Moskowitz displays extraordinary adeptness at communicating the social and psychological friction within relationships, particularly the alienation that can result when that tension becomes too much. You just can’t believe your reading the stuff this kid is doing, hell, what he’s even thinking. His baby brother never stops crying, for undiscovered medical reasons; his parents are embroiled in a taut, passive-aggressive, not-in-front-of-the-kids marriage; and his not-much-younger brother suffers from deadly allergies to milk, and pretty much everything else on the planet.

To put it bluntly, I just fucking love her goddamn books, man. Despite this, I still found Break to be highly engaging and also very, very interesting. The strongest aspect of the novel is Jonah’s relationship with Jesse, which was complex, realistic, and filled with both love and dysfunction. Lists with This Book. May 09, Tabitha Olson rated it liked it Shelves: I would definitely recommend it to older teens – the large amount of profanity and violence of the subject matter is likely too mature for a younger audience.

Another thing I liked was the relationship between Noah rotre his brother.


Start this book when you have time because it is very hard to put down. Deares 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!

Jan 31, Anna Bananas!

The ending is really abrupt, so maybe that’s where my issue lies. The skateboarding ‘accident’ to him throwing himself into a 14 foot deep pool that had been drained to smashing 8 of his toes with a hammer I had to know more about Jesse’s allergies. It had a great premise, overall the writing was exceptional as well as the characters, but the ending was a little lackluster.

There’s this part where Jonah is in the psychiatrist’s office. No one else knows what he’s planning. Jun 17, Ava rated it really liked it. The “voice” in this book is exceptional.

Or that they could be so blind to the fact that their other son was regularly doing himself serious damage. Break is about Jonah going on hsnnah bone-breaking spree and his best friend, Naomi, is there to capture it all on video.

I know there’s supposed to be this whole mental anguish vs. Well, Jonah has to have the highest pain tolerance I’ve seen. Less convincing were the parents. Did I miss something? Hannah Moskowitz wrote her first story, about a kitten named Lilly on the run from cat hunters, for a contest when she was seven years old. The psychiatric ward bit didn’t really do much for me either.

I just cannot find the words to say how much this story touched me. I bought this book and Invicible Summer at the same by Hannah but I wanted to read this one first. Who breaks bones for fun? Some of the biggest subplots get resolved with no pomp or circumstance whatsoever. I’d go insane, I truly would.


She lives in Maryland with several cats, none of whom are violent.

Jonah’s voice is oswa fresh and real, and the writing is sharp. I don’t even know where to begin because all I want to say is you need to read it. After that, several instances didn’t make sense to me. Hqnnah the other hand, Jonah’s psychiatrist immediately sees the flaw in his thinking, and Jonah’s narration reminds us that anyone who doesn’t understand this perfect logic is a small-minded Western thinker.

There’s a baby who cries incessantly and his mindlessly religious parents are quick to lash out verbally at one a BREAK is a story about a family, each of is broken in very different ways.

Everyone knows that broken bones grow back stronger than they were before. The night before, he explained his interest in Confucianism more specifically, how it relates to the family unit to his friends, who seemed to all agree with him.

Parts of it make me laugh. Some may be offended by the excessively obscene languagebut I think it amazingly fits the story so well that it wouldn’t be the same without it.

The characterization here is brdak done, capturing the stress, fear and worry of being a teen as well as the dysfunction of mental illness.
