When i first picked up Braking Point, I figured it would be so boring and be another book about a kid being bullied. This book was soo amazing, it really let you understand the mindset of someone who is bullied/peer pressured. Paul did anything to keep Charlie as a friend. While i was reading i kept thinking why doesnt he just forget about charlie, but as it was ending i realized that all he wanted was a friend. Braking Point is a exellent read and i promise you won't be disapointed.

I had to pick between this book and three others to read for school and I'm glad I chose this over Lord Of The Flies. When I started reading, it was very good. It grabbed me and had detailed, entertaining text. I flew through the book about four fifths of the way before it kind of just changed. The plot seemed to get lost and the writing and dialogue was no longer descriptive and enticing. It was as if the author put all he had into the beginning of the book, but never really planned how he was going to end it, so he improvised and made an ending up on the fly. Some parts would seem like major foreshadowing and then turn out to be nothing, which really made me angry. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend this to any of my friends for an out-of-school read, but I liked it enough to finish it and am convinced that I enjoyed it much more than I would have enjoyed Lord Of The Flies, which I was going to choose initially. All in all, it's kind of half and half depending on what kind of book you like. Most kids my age would probably not notice how poor the writing got at the end if they liked the beginning enough, but I was able to pick up on Alex Flinn's apparent loss of interest or desire to finish the book strongly. It was not particularly impactful and therefore won't stick with me like other novels have in the past.

    All the same

    I have not read the book but i have read other books by alex flinn and read what her other books are about. Now I don't know if it is just me or not , but doesn't it seem like all of her books are alike in some way. The poor person at a rich school, that reminds me of Lindy from Beastly and Beastly: Lindy's Diary. Now, do not get me wrong I love the author and I would love to read all of her books. I want to read this book. Sounds good.
