I would like to hereby announce the upcoming publication of Break by the absolutely amazing debut author Hannah Awesomesauce Moskowitz.
Jonah is on a mission to break every bone in his body. Everyone knows that broken bones grow back stronger than they were before, and Jonah wants to be stronger—needs to be stronger—because everything around him is falling apart. Breaking, and then healing, is Jonah’s only way to cope with the stresses of home, girls, and the world on his shoulders. This is the story of his self-destructive spiral, his rock-bottom moment, and how he finally learns to accept help and find true strength through recovery.
The book doesn’t “officially” come out until Tuesday, but it’s available now at Barnes and Noble, amazon, and other fine booksellers near you. And if it’s not, you should request they order it, and then you should buy it. It’s so good. I mean, let’s just start at the beginning, shall we:
The first feeling is exhilaration.
My arms hit the ground. The sound is like a mallet against a crab.
Pure fucking exhilaration.
How can you not want to read a book that starts like that?
