So this book is a fast and easy read, but the subject matter is pretty intense. This kid is breaking BONES on purpose! Geezus. The book isn't put together in the best possible way -- it just seems like the author is trying to have too much drama going on at once, and doesn't lay it out in the best way. There's a brother who is fatally allergic to practically everything, and somehow he's still operating as a regular, sports playing kid, in a home with a new baby who won't stop crying, and Jonah, the bone-breaker, feels responsible for him! I don't get why the parents aren't way more involved with keeping this kid safe ... Also, WTF is wrong with this crying baby?! We never frickin' find out, and you'd think that would also be something of a bit more concern from the parents. It all feels dramatic and unrealistic, honestly, though that doesn't keep it from being a compelling read.
