*REVIEW* "Broken" by Sandra Love

Reviewer: Angie
Rating: 4 Stars
Broken is told to us through the eyes of three main characters. The beginning of the story introduces us to Cordelia and her awful life. She is bullied every day, first by students at school and then by her father. She has no friends and wishes for the suffering to end. Then, one amazing day, Cameron and Kaleigh enter her life. They know secrets that could change Cordelia’s life for the better, IF she can survive what lies those secrets.
The premise of the story is a good one and in the beginning I felt like I was really starting to get the feel for who Cordelia was, and all the pain that was her life. As the other characters are introduced, I felt like the story went too fast. I wanted to get to know the other characters better, and wanted to continue to see Cordelia grow. If you like a quick read, this would be a good read, but I tend to like stories that draw me in.

Cordelia Rose has a horrible life. She gets bullied by students at school, beaten by her father, practically abandoned by her mother, and wants to end her life and the suffering. But when some strange things start to happen, she questions whether or not she has a purpose in this life. Then she meets a brother and sister that mean more to her than she even realizes. They are her protectors, and her kindred spirits. Just like her, they are bruised and broken, though for different reasons. When she finally discovers the truth of her existence, her mind is jumbled with everything she has to take in; not to mention the battle she has to fight, inside and out.
