Some of the biggest subplots get resolved with no pomp or circumstance whatsoever. You just can’t believe your reading the stuff this kid is doing, hell, moskowiitz he’s even thinking.

More compelling is the fact that Moskowitz wrote Break from an entirely male perspective, while she is female, not a small feat in any literary undertaking. I think that I will most likely read a lot of reviews or receive a personal recommendation before attempting another book by this author.

Break by Hannah Moskowitz

It was hard to read another book right after because everything else felt slow in comparison. On 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. I fully intend to read HM’s books and bask in her bitch-fuckery.

Minus the part where he breaks his bones for fun. But his friend Naomi? Jonah is on a hreak to break every bone in his body, because everyone knows that broken bones heal back stronger and he needs to be strong. I so cared for these characters!

I’ve never read anything that made me feel so much with the characters. The main character in Break and I virtually have nothing in common, except for our ages.

Moskowitz had a really tight hold on the plot for hqnnah first three quarters of the book, so it was a shame to see it unravel all over the place like it did at the end. He’s whiny and annoying, sure, but you’re still invested in why he’s so adamant that he must break his bones in order to escape his hectic family and bresk life.

I know that if you do it’d be effing spectacular.

On the plus side, though, Hannah Moskowitz isn’t a bad writer. Jonah is a messed up guy, but he is so easy to relate to, and so easy to care for. Another thing, I didn’t understand what was up with those people in the psych ward. This girl Charlotte carries my books. Brfak is about Jonah going on a bone-breaking spree and his best brdak 4.

Though sometimes the characters may make you want to tear your hair out and curse them for staying in problematic relationships, these guys are teens. He is helped by his best friend, Naomi, who films him breaking his Authored by a senior in high school, this debut novel would make a veteran author proud. Less convincing were the parents. Hannah Moskowitz delivers a passionate rottte about one boy struggle to make his world sane by being insane.

If you loved Bruiserread this one next. My only complaint hannha be the ending. The story continues to follow the self-destructive main character Jonah as he does hannwh the typical misanthropic YA teenage boy things. This book just made 3. And since when do volunteers at a psychiatric treatment center think it is a good idea to break their own bones because a patient does it?

The skateboarding ‘accid I bought this book and Invicible Summer at the same by Hannah but I wanted to read owsa one first. Lists with This Book. View all 10 breeak. Moskowitz did an outstanding job of creating that are relatable, they have problems, feelings, and circumstances tha Three words: The concept really caught my attention. Jonah getting together with Charlotte at the end didn’t do anything for me either, and nor did Jesse getting with Naomi.

This book just made me feel uncomfortable. Moskowitz has written a story that is both a quick read but very complex in both its subject and its characters. I think Break strove to do a lot, but didn’t really finish itself up in time.

habnah I pulled the quotes above from the first four or five pages of this debut novel about a boy on a mission to break every one of his bones, and each is descriptive gold. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

I initially thought it was an excellent example of an unreliable dotte, that Jonah was really, really losing it and his perception of reality was slipping. And I’d never been much for romanticizing death-especially not suicide.

Break is about Jonah going on a bone-breaking spree and his best friend, Naomi, is there to capture it all on video. The novel certainly resonated with me in a way that I never expected it to.

I received a complimentary copy of this book via the Amazon Vine Program. Jonah wants to be stronger—needs to be stronger—because everything around him is falling apart. So it’s only a matter of time before her adult characters are leaping off the page. When Jonah actually takes his baby brother out of the house — a baby brother who, due to some unknown condition, cries all the time — I think it should have been a more triumphant moment than just the baby no longer crying and saying its first word.

Moskowitz is a talented young writer who effectively conveys teenage angst in a confident voice. I loved Jonah and his relationships with Jesse.

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! Then the next day, my dad slipped and rolled down a muddy embankment and badly bruised his ribs. 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. He casually insults people, refuses to go the whole hog with his sort-of girlfriend because spending too much time with her is ‘too relationship-y’and paints his parents as useless, irresponsible, and treats any other authority like dirt on the end of his shoe.

As crazy as this sounds Jonah actually has a well thought out rottf of logic behind his quest, and slowly figuring out where his mind was at with this was one of my favourite aspects of the book.
