Fractured


Release Date: October 27th 2020
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary

Synopsis:

Sometimes we have to let go of who we are to embrace who we can become.

Mason Vance is the guy everybody wants to be, and he knows it. He’s the best high school quarterback in New York, a shoo-in for a football scholarship at any school he chooses, and he’s expected to land in the NFL one day. That is, until a broken wrist leaves him fearing whether he’ll ever play again.

Desperate to save his damaged ego, Mason sets his sights on Lace. No cheerleader or homecoming queen like his usual type, she’s too wrapped in her own misery to fall for his pickup lines. Even though she tries to shut him out, she’s surprised to find he’s there for her when no one else is. Slowly, she lets him into the sad workings of her mind and less-than-perfect life, and Mason finds himself caring about Lace more than he’d ever thought possible. That’s why neither of them sees his huge mistake coming—one that instantly fractures everything between them.

Will Mason confront the ugliest side of himself, and in the process see who he’s capable of becoming, or will he fall back into the life he knew before Lace and his injury?

For contemporary young adult fiction fans, comes a bold debut that is raw, relatable, and real. Fractured is a moving tribute to the fragility of human nature and its ability to destroy even the most powerful connections.



3,5 STARS

This was a nice read, it was fast paced. The book revolves around Mason, who is the star player, the quarterback for his school's football team.Even though I find the story sweet there were some parts that it wasn't for me.
Mason wasn't too easy to like him.He has some parts that I like, but I didn't like his chat with his friends.
I loved Lace's character a lot and I find some of her concersations with him emotional and intense.
The ending was one of the best arts through the story!It was perfect.
