Today I am a host for the Blog tour of The Broken One by Crhistine H. Bailey. This Blog Tour is coordinated by Xpresso Book Tours.
DATE PUBLISHED: 14th March 2016
Sixteen-year-old Farris is picking up the pieces after the untimely death of her best friend. But even one year later, she can’t seem to find “normal” again—not until Lane Evans pops back into her life and pushes her to face reality. When he offers her the chance to find the truth, Farris fears what will surface. Is it too much too soon or just what she needs to move forward?
The main plot of the book is Farris coming to terms with her friends death a year earlier. As life moves on and her father finds a romantic interest and maybe even Farris she must come to terms with her friends passing. The plot was a little slow for my liking but overall was satisfying. I thought this may have been a murder mystery but it was more of a self discovery and growth type book. The character of Farris was what held the book for me. It was evident in the writing that she was hurting and seeking the truth about her friends death. Overall, it was an enjoyable book that left things open but it was Farris’ character that really drove the book.
