Review of The Breakaway
I absolutely loved this book! The author tackles some serious and very relevant issues. Abby has struggled with body positivity and self worth all her life and this was handled in a positive manner with her personal growth and emerging confidence. Mother/daughter issues are also a big component of the book that I really enjoyed. Abortion and all the complications and emotions with that are dealt with in a sensitive manner. I always love good dialogue and this book definitely has that. The cycling aspect is fun and the secondary characters are great. Overall I loved this book. The author covered a lot of ground but it didn’t feel rushed. This is definitely one of my favourite books of the year.
