    One thought on “The Summer of Broken Things”

    1. There is something about books set in the summer that are really appealing to me right now! The themes of family and friendship are very intriguing in this one. I am also curious as to what will make this book “a haunting novel.”

    2. You can find more of my reviews at Forever 17 Books.The Summer of Broken Things is just that, a story about two girls whose worlds seem to collide and fall apart while on summer vacation together, and the ways it changed them.Avery’s father must travel to Spain for the summer and insists that not only she come with him, but that they bring along a girl she once knew as a young child, Kayla. Both girls couldn’t be more different from each other and Avery feels a little resentment that Kayla i [...]

    3. 35297600Haddix, Margaret Peterson. The Summer of Broken Things.April 10th 2018 by Simon Schuster Books for Young Readers E ARC from Edelweiss Above the TreelineAvery is a well-to-do 14-year-old who loves to play soccer. Her father must spend the summer in Spain for work, and her mother is staying to run her decorating business. Something is wrong with this situation, but Avery isn't quite sure what it is. Kayla is two years older and lives in a small town not too far from Avery's posh town. Her [...]

    4. THE SUMMER OF BROKEN THINGS tells the story of a summer that really changes both of the main characters. Avery Armisted is fourteen, rich, pretty, athletic and just a little bit spoiled. When her parents tell her that she is going with her father to Spain for the summer instead of to soccer camp with her friends, she is angry and disappointed. She is even more angry when her father tells her that they are bringing along Kayla Butts who is two years older and who was a friend when both girls were [...]

    5. Ugggghhhhh MPH, you are so much better than this! Both characters are such cliches, it hurt to read. The Spoiled Teen was incredibly unlikeable and the Country Teen was just cringeworthy.I love twists, but the main twist was so not that big of a deal? The second twist was great and perfectly written and awesome. THAT is why I read MPH. My personal rant:This book made it seem like nursing home residents in the country are all kindly people with stories and advice to share, whereas Europe has pro- [...]

    6. Fourteen-year-olds Avery and Kayla were childhood best friends. The key verb is “were.” Now they can’t stand each other, and they’re as different as a crescent moon night and a summer solstice day. Avery is rich, pretty, popular and worldly. Kayla is quiet, awkward and the butt of ugly jokes. Literally. Her last name is Butts, and she’s called “butt-girl” at school. Things take a strange turn when these two former friends are forced to travel to Spain together. Their parents are hi [...]

    7. I recieved this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I was pleasantly surprised by this book! I thought it would be cheesy, and just your basic "taking a trip and Finding yourself" book, which it was, but it was also so much more. It had twists that I wasn't expecting, and the author really captured the teenage angst with Avery. I remembered myself talking to my parents like she does, thinking they were so stupid, when really it was me being stupid. It was me being a spo [...]

    8. This is not your usual action-packed Margaret Peterson Haddix thriller. It is a much more introspective, slower paced book, looking at family secrets and relationships. It does still have the trademark Haddix plot twists and reveals. And it made me want to go to Madrid. Recommended for grades 8 & up.eARC provided by publisher via Edelweiss

    9. Closer to 3.5. I loved the storyline but I felt Avery was somewhat unredeemable even given the excuse she is only 14. This is a new realm for this author and I️, as always, love her writing!

    10. I was interested in Haddix's foray into YA, but the pace was a little too slow and introspective for me.*Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for providing an e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
