Teaser Tuesday[31]: Break by Hannah Moskowitz

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


Feels like it’s been a slow week and yet so very long at the same time. I’ve been somewhat avoiding homework till the last minute (because I’m horrible—but, I mean, we all do that, right?), and reading quite a bit. Am tired. School is… tiring. I’m just getting used to it, though. To all the stuff I’m doing right now.
Well. Whatever.
Here’s what I’m reading:
Break by Hannah Moskowitz
Genre: YA Contemporary (I don’t think Romance is high in this book—is it?)
Publisher: Simon & Schuster (Simon Pulse)
Publish Date: August 25th, 2009

Goodreads Synopsis:

Jonah is on a mission to break every bone in his body. Everyone knows that broken bones grow back stronger than they were before. And Jonah wants to be stronger—needs to be stronger—because everything around him is falling apart. Breaking, and then healing, is Jonah’s only way to cope with the stresses of home, girls, and the world on his shoulders.
When Jonah's self-destructive spiral accelerates and he hits rock bottom, will he find true strength or surrender to his breaking point?


“’How’s everything going, Jonah?’
This question is enough to piss me off.” (Paperback, pg. 98)

“’How’d you break your arm, Jonah?’
‘Fell off my skateboard.’
‘And the black eye?’
‘Fell off my skateboard.’
‘Your jaw?’
I stare at her. ‘You want me to say it again?’” (Paperback, pg. 99)

Well, he sounds feisty and like he’s avoiding something, doesn’t he? So, what are you reading right now?
