    Breakaway: A Novel By Kat Spears


    Oh god, I m so bored I just don t care about Jason and his friends problems And Raine is one hell of a one dimensional character I think I m just going to let this book go.Let it goooooo

    Aj the Ravenous Reader
    The title matches the quality of the book very much because it is a rather radical break from the usual YA contemporary There s something about the way Kat Spears relates her stories and her characters Hers is an unadulterated, unfiltered way of showing the truth and I admire it.Breakaway much like Sway is an encompassing story about a teenage boy grieving in his own unusual way over the death of his younger sister, while maintaining some semblance to a home, taking care of his mom, keeping watc [...]

    Holy emotions My heart hurts.After the death of his younger sister, Jason comes to realize that his crew of soccer friends him, Mario, Jordie, and Chick are growing apart and there s nothing he can do about it Jordie is interested in impressing his high class friends, Mario has fallen in with a druggie crowd, and Jason is having a tough time controlling his anger The only person that even cares about saving them is Chick, a small sickly boy that the other 3 have let tagalong with them for years [...]

    You re still mad at me, I said She eyed me coolly letting the silence hang between us as she considered my question I was thinking about her lower lip again when she spoke Don t flatter yourself I have better things to do than sit around being mad at you What kind of things I asked What she asked, her brow wrinkling in confusion You said you had better things to do , I said to remind her What kinds of things Are you trying to be funny she asked I don t really have to try, I said with mock humili [...]

    That s how it ends Certainly I m missing a chapter Okay good thing I wasn t all that crazy about the rest of the book What a completely unresolved and depressing conclusion I can t figure out exactly what the author was going for, with that Ah, well Honestly, I thought I d like Breakaway a lot I was looking forward to reading a male point of view, knowing Jason would be a bit of an anti hero if Kat Spears first book is anything to go by She does write a boy s voice believably, but that doesn t [...]

    I really, really, really recommend this book.Jaz is trying to process his grief after losing his younger sister while his mother falls into a deep depression, and his father is mostly out of the picture To top it off, he feels his three best friends growing apart as they grow up Mario is falling in with the wrong crowd Jordie is distancing himself from his poorer friends in favor of his fellow country clubber girlfriend and Chick is his same old quiet and troubled self It s so refreshing to read [...]

    I really liked this one A bit of a grief book and a lot of a coming of age story Great guy point of view and male friendships so rare in YA Unresolved ending, but I don t mind thatLonger review to come.Thanks to the publisher for providing an advance copy for review Read of my reviews on YA Romantics or follow me on Bloglovin

    After I read an ARC ofSway last year and heard the author speak at the VLA conference, I knew I d want to check out anything she published in the future I saw this on Netgalley and had to request a copy.I loved this book There was a lot going on during the novel, and all of it was bookended by two tragedies In a way, what I loved most about this novel is how normal most of the plot was It wasn t jammed packed with action and adventure, but it rang true to a typical high school experience I think [...]

    I Like to think I discovered Kat Spears, when a lonely ARC of Sway landed on my desk I devoured it, and then told everyone that they needed to put down whatever else they were reading and read Sway So when I heard about Breakaway, I thought there s no way this author can produce two books of that quality in two years , but I was wrong Breakaway is an excellent follow up novel, and Kat Spears has once again shown herself as being a peer dare I say rival to much better known authors such as John G [...]

    Later rerated to 3 Stars I m rerating a lot of the books I read in the past to fit my current taste Most of the time it s downrating books that I thought I really liked at the time but there are a few exceptions And it d be too much to try to reflect these changes on my blog, so the ratings will remain as the original ones on Xingsings.4 Stars, Completed September 13, 2015This book was raw, harsh, and honest.Breakaway is a story about four teenage boys anticipating the best senior year together [...]

    Breakaway by Kat Spears is contemporary young adult fiction for an empathetic and perceptive reader In the wake of his younger sister s death, Jason Marshall is sad, angry and lost As his single mother sinks into depression, Jaz should be able to rely on his best mates, but Mario is too busy getting high, Jordan is distracted by his new girlfriend, and Chick has his own problems Written in the first person, Jason doesn t really have insight into much of what motivates him, nor Spears other chara [...]

    Jazmen This Girl Reads A lot
    Here s the thing about Kat Spears that you need to understand to appreciate her books, she s an obvious realist She s not into happy endings, or easy love Her books are not that simple So if you want happy endings, or a romance to swoon over keep going, because you won t get that here.Spears tells the kind of stories that are heartbreaking in a real way These teens deal with some real life problems, and Breakaway was no different Although I found Sway to be superior, Breakaway was still enjoyabl [...]

    You know how artists, authors, musicians, etc suffer from the dreaded sopho slump Well, Kat Spears looked Sopho S right in the face and gave it the finger She s got the effed up, devil may care male POV down pat and it makes you realize that there s no age or EQ limit that the asshole with a soft side persona cannot break And while the storyline was a tad too predictable, and the events leading up to the end did not come off as a surprise, the book was so heartfelt and Jaz s voice so well writte [...]

    A harsh and expressive book about friendship Both confronting and endearing Breakaway is about four boys who are friends, but as their final year of high school progresses they realise they don t really know why they are close or what they have in common Let s start with Jason, or Jaz as he is know by his friends He is our main character and he narrates the novel At the start he is mourning the death of his sister Jaz reads like a typical 17 year old boy He is slightly dislikable, yet honest, ha [...]

    I knew going into this story that it was going to be quite different from what I normally read Kat Spears writes depressing, difficult to read stories that are extremely realistic, yet tough to read at times I had attempted to read Sway last year after falling in love with the cover and unique synopsis, but I had such a difficult time with the MC and all of the drug use that I ended up putting it down I m honestly not too sure why, but I have a difficult time reading books with a lot of drug use [...]

    Once again, Kat Spears manages to achieve what few other writers have she has broken my heart on than one occasion, and made me cry while reading her book.I have been very fortunate to have had the pleasure to receive ARCs of both of Spears books, Sway and Breakaway A Novel Her second book is just as complex, original, truthful, and gritty as her debut, if not so Jaz and his friends reveal the intricacies and variability of relationships as they traverse through the landmine filled world of ad [...]

    I read and am reviewing an ARC of this title digital copy I will struggle to match this book to readers in my high school library Some of the girls will want romance Some of the guys will want action It s unfortunate that it doesn t really attract an audience because the writing is great This is not a spoiler, just a notice There is no climactic, feel good moment The ending doesn t tie up loose ends I was left thinking okay and then what but not in a frantic I need to know now manner that I ge [...]

    DNF 9% Never had me since the start but completely lost me at the part where Jason says In case you don t know, talking yourself out of having sex when there s a mostly naked girl lying in your arms is virtually impossible Okay, I don t even know what to say about that Just no No for that quote and no for this book in general.Extremely late but thanks to St Martin s Press and NetGalley for granting me access to an eARC.

    Cynthia (Bingeing On Books)
    I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.This is kind of a hard review to write because I didn t actually feel any emotion for the main character until the last ten percent of the book Up until that point, I was apathetic about it than anything.The book opens with the funeral of Jason s sister With the book being told from a male POV, I can almost forgive the fact that he didn t really show that much grief When people brought it up, he would either ignore it or pass i [...]

    Kat Spears, please keep writing books, because the first 2 you have put out I have loved Like Sway, Breakaway kept me glued start to finish This author can write male protagonists I agree with another reviewer here that says she is as talented as John Green Can t wait to read her next one

    Even though I gave this book a slightly low rating, I still really enjoyed it It has some fluff but it also deals with tough concepts which makes the fluff less fluffy It was a moving novel and overall I really liked it.The book moved smoothly I loved how it dealt with coming of age topics like death and losing friendships Nothing was sugarcoated and even though that was a part I enjoyed, on some level I didn t really like it When I went into this book I didn t really think it would be so deep, [...]

    This story tell about a young boy, Jason, whose sister, Sylvia, just passed away and is now counting on his three best friends, Jordie, Mario, and Chick, to help him through this tough time Connecting with a girl was not one of his top priorities, especially not with Raine, the mystery girl with pink hair and an extravigant wardrobe As Jason s friends all start drifting away, he finds himself feeling closer and closer to Raine and finding that ever since Sylvia died, his life turned upside down, [...]

    Through the majority of this book, I was all set to give it four starsuntil I got to the end It really had no clear conclusion and this made me rethink everything I had just read and enjoyed I had to ask myself, what was this book really about There s Jason and the fact that his sister has just died and his three best friends who are supposed to help him get through this But, that doesn t really happen There s Jason s absent fatherbut, is he really There s Raine, the girl that shouldn t fall for [...]

    Stacey Conrad
    Kat Spears has become a go to author for me I love her characters flawed but redeemable boys, believable girls, and realistic adults Looking at the cover of this book, one might be led to believe it s really about soccer, but soccer is just a background, a link between the four guys in this story, the only one they have that keeps them together after a while Jaz, or Jason, is reeling after the death of his younger sister Everyone is grieving, his mother, her friends and the rest of the high sch [...]

    What an honest look at grief changing friendships It s quite a challenge to tackle a friendship foursome without it feeling like some part of the square is ignored or undeveloped but Spears did a really great job here Through the eyes of Jason, we know just how he thinks of each of his best friends and how much he depends on them I have to say The marketing copy and the cover art are misleading This book is very dark, and full of heartbreak the cover makes it look like a fluffy YA While there is [...]

    Let me preface by saying that I am reviewing an advance proof sent to me by the publisher That being said, on with the actual review.I was pleasantly surprised by this book Based on the synopsis, I didn t have high hopes, I assumed this would be a YA book cut from the YA cookie cutter mold It wasn t This book was really about a young a man on the cusp of creating an adult life Yikes, that sounds a bit cliche The secondary characters are a bit one dimensional, but that s fine, this isn t about th [...]

    Somehow I couldn t remember requesting this book at Netgalley when I got an email with the approval I saw it was about a soccer playing teenage boy, and I hesitated if I should start at all Needless to say, looking at my star rating I am very, very glad I did anyway Breakaway is a great coming of age story The main character being male is, I noticed, quite refreshing seeing some teenage troubles concerning life and dealing with death, parents who might or might not do a good job parenting, throu [...]

    BREAKAWAY is an updated OUTSIDERS story with a compelling, self protective narrator named Jaz who is grieving his sister s death and watching his relationships with his three best friends change as he pursues a tentative romance with a wealthy girl There is a lot going on in this novel, and there are many poignant moments, especially between Jaz and his three closest friends and Jaz and his love interest, Raine Spears effectively sets up the novel s climax, and the title is apt, both because Jaz [...]

    DISCLAIMER I received a review copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I will try to refrain from giving spoilers, but I will just state the facts that have already been stated in the description.My Honest Opinions Thoughts I lost two younger siblings I was able to relate to the first portion of Jason s story I really liked the storyline, the characters It did take me a while to get into reading this book, but I still loved it I did not have that glued to the book feeling, but I did [...]

    3.5 stars.Kat Spears stole my heart with Sway and her talent for crafting a book around a sassy, damaged, misunderstood teenage boy This book moved me unexpectedly, and the end is stellar, however parts in the middle dragged and were missing the biting wit she had me longing for.Breakaway has little to do with soccer and a lot to do with loss Jaz is hit by a freight train of death, change and rites of passage senior year, plans, becoming a man, deciding whether to have sex all at the same time o [...]
