Three Reasons To Love CRACKED


1. Two distinct teen male points of view. How much more awesome (and crafty) can this author get? I mean, the writing is fantastic.

2. One is a bully and the other is his victim. And guess what? I rooted for both! My heart ripped to shreds hearing their stories before and after they ended up as roommates in the same psych ward.

3. K.M. Walton sewed my heart back together, stitch by stitch. She didn't force feed me a life lesson or give too tidy of an ending. What she did was give me realistic HOPE and as a reader that's all I really needed.

First line: I have wished that Bull Mastrick would die almost every single day.


YOU MUST (*must*) READ THIS BOOK!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! ^_^

Any book that can stitch our hearts together has accomplished what a great story should. Sounds like a fabulous read ...

Your #2 is a great pitch for the book. How many bully characters are like that? Sounds like a good one.

Reason #4: I remember this book when it was just an opening chapter on the Teen Fire forum, and I was hooked then.

Reason #5: The launch party is in my local area and I get to attend! Yay!

I can't wait to read this book. Looks like I'm going to break my New Years resolution of NOT buying any new books before finishing my TBR pile. :D

Okay, I'll start my resolution after I buy it.
