BOOK REVIEW: What's Broken Between Us by Alexis Bass


BLURB:

Alexis Bass’s heartbreakingly beautiful second novel is a tale of love, loss, and learning to forgive.

Look to the left, look to the right. We’re all going to die. But someone has to do it first. So who’s it going to be? 

Tragedy struck Amanda Tart’s town a year and a half ago when a sophomore girl was killed in a car accident on graduation night.

Amanda’s brother, Jonathan, was behind the wheel and too drunk to drive. He’s spent the past year in prison and has cut off all ties. But now Jonathan is coming home. Just as Amanda’s trying to figure out what that means for her family and herself, she’s paired up for a school project with Henry Crane—a former crush, and brother of Jonathan’s ex-girlfriend, who survived the crash with horrible injuries.

Everyone is still incredibly damaged by the events of that night. Can Amanda and Henry finally begin to heal what’s broken and find some peace?

REVIEW BY: Arianna, age 13 years, 1 month

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This book was really bold and had me hooked right away! I think this portrayed reality exceptionally well. 

My favorite character was Henry because he was sincere and he loved his family. Where other male characters in this book were blunt and bold. 

My favorite part is the ending because you can tell everyone is content and ready to deal with the cards dealt. They accept what has happened and try to move on. 

I recommend this book to anyone who likes romance, broken lives and drama. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 13 and up.
