Excellent YA thriller 17 novembre 2013
Par Kelli of I'd So Rather Be Reading - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
Wow, this book was good! I started Broken thinking it was going to go in a predictable direction, and Lyons blew my expectations out of the water. Broken is contemporary YA, but it's also a thriller, and a great one at that! My heart was racing for the last 45 minutes or so of the story....not such a good idea for reading right before bed, because I was very revved up by the time I finished reading (and of course I had to finish before I could go to sleep!).

Scarlet has been sick for her whole life. As a fellow "sick kid," I really identified with her. I don't have a heart condition, but my illness does require me to stay home much of the time, like Scarlet. Scarlet wants nothing more than a normal high school experience, and she finally convinces her parents to let her attend high school for a week on a trial basis.

Broken spans one week in time, but it's an action-packed week, and with the revelations throughout the story, it's the most life-changing week Scarlet has ever had. I'm not usually a fan of books that take place over very short time periods, but the short time span really worked for Broken. Plus, there was an epilogue----love those----so there was plenty of closure and an added layer of depth to the story.

It's hard to write this review without giving away the huge surprise at the end of Broken. Suffice it to say, I was shocked beyond belief. Lyons' pacing was perfect, and had me on the edge of my seat for much of the story. The characters were well-developed, interesting, and varied from the typical high school students. I loved that Scarlet's flashbacks served such an important role in the conflict resolution. It was easy for me to mentally brush them off, thinking, oh, that's just another dream...but at the end, when everything came together, the crazy dreams made perfect sense.

I'm new to C.J. Lyons but I'm very impressed with her work. I'll definitely be reading her work again. I highly recommend Broken for fans of contemporary YA and fans of thrillers.

Unique story with twist and turns and surprise ending. 12 novembre 2013

After reading C.J. Lyons', "Broken", I knew I had to write a review recommending the book as a must read. It has taken me three days to gather my thoughts on Lyons' story of a 15 year old young woman who has been home schooled due to a life threatening medical condition. Scarlet is entering public school for the first time as a high school sophomore. In a very short time Scarlet experiences life changing situations for everyone around her. C.J. Lyons's shows in Broken how Scarlet's willingness to take personal risks and make sacrifices are character building.

The reader is introduced to Scarlet Killian as a young woman dealing with a genetic heart condition, Long QT Syndrome, causing her heart to have an abnormal heart rhythm, her heart pumps so fast there is a 20% chance Scarlet could die at any moment. Scarlet pulls her Automated External Defibrillator in a wheeled case, just in case her heart goes too fast or stops and needs a shock. The AED nicknamed "Phil" gives Scarlet unwanted attention from students of Smithfield High School.

The storyline walks the reader through the challenges Scarlet meets and how she resolves them. Scarlet's one desire is to be able to attend high school as a normal student. Her dad and step-mom think Scarlet's heart is not strong enough to deal with the day to day pressures. Dad is on the road four days a week leaving Scarlet's step-mother, the Smithfield School nurse, responsible for Scarlet's heath.

We learn Scarlet's persistence has talked her dad and step-mom into letting her try to attend public schools, and they have agreed to a one week trial. Scarlet has one week to prove she can deal with the pressures of the academic life. Lyons' "Broken" takes the time to introduce her readers to the key players in Scarlet's life. Along with dad and step-mom, we meet the school bully who targets Scarlet almost immediately, then the four members of the Peer Mentoring Support group whose lives add to the twists and turns of the plot, and finally we meet Scarlet's lab partner.

The story could stand on its own just dealing with how a 15 year old woman deals with a life threatening heart issue and the changes to her life. C.J. Lyons places her readers in the classroom with Scarlet and the readers feel the problem of every other student looking at her. The readers feel Scarlet's embarrassment when her step-mom, the school nurse, seems to follow her around the school ready to protect her. As day to day life situations happen, the reader is frustrated that we can't give Scarlet advice on what to say or do. Scarlet struggles to understand each member of her support group, and it is heartwarming to see the Scarlet's growth and realization that there is always someone else who has bigger problems. It is difficult to help anyone deal with the feeling of being all alone even in a large group. Scarlet gets tired of explaining the what, why and how of her medical issue.

"Broken" addresses several social issues and explores health issues, the surprise ending. will give you chills up and down your spine.

A Dirty Little Secret 19 novembre 2013

Broken begins slowly, drawing in the reader like a fisherman landing an angry smallmouth bass on a cloudy January day at the lake. You know it's there, waiting to break the surface, but you must play it just so or he'll break the line. The wait is well worth it however and CJ Lyons again never disappoints. So sit back, get comfortable and stick with it. You 'll have a trophy on the wall waiting at the conclusion!

Memorable, charming 6 novembre 2013
Par Ionia Martin - Publié sur

I fell in love with this book before the first chapter was even complete. Really--yes, this is unusual for me to say so as I like to make my decisions when I am finished with the novel, but in this case, there was simply no doubt in my mind that what I had before me was a truly great book. Now that I have finished the book, I can definitely say that I was right. It is a great book.

Scarlet was a character that I could get close to right away for many reasons. Her internal voice was so honest right from the start that I found it easy to feel compassion for her situation. She wanted so much to be normal and to live life to the fullest that I found myself wishing the best for her and excited about each page that went by.

The thriller aspect of this book comes a bit later than I expected, but I thought the buildup of the rest of the story was perfect. I always feel when the author rushes straight into the dramatic aspects of a novel before I have the chance to get to know the main character that the book ends up lacking a crucial connection. I was already invested in the characters of this book before the major angles began, so I cared what happened to them.

I have shied away from novels that had teenaged main characters for the most part since I got bored with the repeat story lines. This one, I am very happy to say is different. More so than the usual high-school drama of boy and girl meet...fight...make up, this book has a main character with genuine concerns and a real problem.

This book has some romance, danger and excitement in it as well as being compelling, well-paced and interesting. If you enjoy books where you are never sure exactly what is going to happen next and the characters seem realistic and like someone you could reach out and touch, this is a great book to choose.

This review is based on a digital ARC from Netgalley and the the publisher.

Great book. Knowing it was written by a pediatric doctor added to the reality. I really enjoyed it! CJ Lyons rocks.
