Breaking the Silence

Breaking the Silence - Katie Allen There was a lot of potential here and had the characters been better developed, it could've been great. The silliness and flaky personality of the heroine didn't fit with the more serious nature of certain aspects of the storyline. I really liked Will, but I felt like his story was handled poorly. Why give him a tragic past if it's not going to be explored or treated with care? It was like an afterthought. It was just fluff with some drama for dramas sake.

Overall, I was left unsatisfied and found the characters lacking. I'm giving it a three, but it's more like 2.5 stars. Mostly b/c the writing was well done but the characters weren't fleshed out enough for me to care about them or even feel like they were more than cardboard cutouts.
