So, I saw the cover of this book and read the blurb and I was so excited because it looks and sounds like a great story. Add to that the high rating, and I was thinking I had myself an undiscovered gem. Given the $8 price tag on this ebook, the fact that it reads like the work of a novice really irritated me.

Okay, so Broken Silence is the story of Brigitta, a teen who has suffered the sexual abuse of her uncle since she was 6. As a result of these horrific moments in her life, she's turned to c

I have had this book on my to read list for a long time ( 2+ years) this was dull. Cold. Boring and immature writing. I couldn't feel anything for Brigitta because she was so one dimensional. I gave up at about 23%.

3 1/2 stars, why the prologue was great, but what her uncle did to her was awful, but then I felt, it kept repeating over and over. I guess I wanted revenge, yes, I can be evil.. :o) It still was a good book, will read another book from this author.

I consumed this novel in a matter of 2 hours.

A raw picture of a life torn apart by nightmares and the extreme isolation of silence in the face of pain. Sometimes, it's Silence that holds us back from healing.

I definitely recommend this book to others.
