      Would recommend to those interested in violence crimes. A family dealing with violence ends up affecting the main character's life. This is a very powerful and emotional read.

      Personal Response I thought Shattered was overall, a great book. I thought that Darcy and Hakeem were meant to be together forever. I thought the author did a great job introducing all of the characters and also putting multiple characters into the storyline to make things more exciting. I also thought that it was very attention grabbing because the author had two best friends fight and breakup. I thought it was even better that he found a way to have them make up and become best friends again.C [...]

      Personal ResponseI think that Shattered is a very sad book. I think the saddest part is when Darcy loses her friend Tarah, after she finds out Tarah was lying to her about Brian cheating on her. I did like how it ended when Darcy and Jamie's father decides to stop drinking and lying to them about it. PlotShattered is about a girl named Darcy whose life is falling apart. She lost her best friend, Tarah, because she didn't tell her about Brian cheating on her. Darcy's home life is becoming miserab [...]

      I really enjoyed this book and everything that was in it. It really had an important lesson in it about love. All Darcy had to do was tell him everything that happen and she would feel ten times better. That was an important part of this book that could have taught some people. The perfect way to get the past of your mind is to talk to someone about it. I reccomand this book to 8th graders and older.
