The Broken Places

by Susan Perabo

What happens when we are asked to look at the people we know in different ways? Not an easy book to read by any means, but one that gives you an ultimate feeling of satisfaction. The ending is suitably downbeat, in keeping with the tone of the novel.

He wished the words back then, for a moment, wished himself back ten days, ten minutes, ten years, wished himself over his father's shoulder, barrelling down the hallway to bed. But then Ian looked at him square, suddenly and briefly hopeful, and he knew there was no going back.
'You can't tell anyone,' Ian whispered. 'Not your mom, not anyone. You got to swear to me, Paul. You'll never tell.'
Paul nodded. 'I swear.'
