Book Description

“You’re a good kid, Henry.”

Everyone knew that he was a good guy; geeky, responsible, hard-working. Henry has had a lot to deal with in the past. Now, as he should be focusing on his schooling and preparing himself for the future, he is hindered by abuse, the challenge of raising his baby brother while dealing with his mother’s deep depressions, and the return of a ghost from the past Henry has tried his best to forget.

But it seems that Henry can’t avoid the nastiness of life. As hard as he tries, it’s one more disaster after another as his life spirals out of control.

Can Henry escape the darkness, or is he doomed to be consumed by it?


-- I was caught up in the twists and turns of the plot from the beginning of Deviation and was still surprised at the end.

-- This book could actually happen. That is what makes it so scary! I am really looking forward to the next book in the series. I am thoroughly intrigued and want to see what happens next.

-- “Deviation” will play on your emotions and feed your doubts as you follow Henry though his many troubles and trials.

About the Author

For as long as P.D. Workman can remember, the blank page has held an incredible allure. After a number of false starts, she finally wrote her first complete novel at the age of twelve. It was full of fantastic ideas. It was the spring board for many stories over the next few years. P.D. Workman is a devout wife and a mother of one, born and raised in Alberta, Canada. She is a homeschooler and an Executive Assistant. She has a passion for art and nature, creative cooking for special diets, and running. She loves to read, to listen to audio books, and to share books out loud with her family. She is a technology geek with a love for all kinds of gadgets and tools to make her writing and work easier and more fun. In person, she is far less well-spoken than on the written page and tends to be shy and reserved with all but those closest to her.

5.0 out of 5 stars So good yet so sad too... October 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first in the Breaking the Pattern series by P.D. Workman.

This book was so good and also very sad. The main character, Henry, has taken care of his little baby brother, Bobby, since he was born. He also tries to take care of his trouble mother and put up with her boyfriend, Clint who is mean to Henry. I highly disliked him...

Henry gets into trouble without even trying and is for the most part a very good young man.

He runs into the only man that was ever a father to him and wants to have him as a part of his life. He even takes Bobby when he goes to visit him. But Frank starts acting strange around Bobby when he is holding him and tells Henry to take him home. Henry is confused by his sudden change in how he acts towards him too.

He finds out that Frank has been arrested for being around him and Bobby and that he is a pedophile. The police come to Henry's house to question him and his mother tells them that he had bothered Henry when he was just a little kid. But Henry does not remember any of that and thinks his mother is lying. But is she? Was he molested by the one person that he trusted so much?

Girls start getting killed, mostly prostitutes. Sandy, a prostitute that you'll meet and get to know more in book 2 has befriended Henry and helped him in many ways. He gets hooked on drugs and ends up in jail. Could he have been the murder? A sweet young boy who was such a good brother to baby Bobby? Did the mental system let him down by putting him on the wrong kind of meds?

Henry's favorite thing to do was take pictures. Every time he got any extra money he bought more photography items to help him. He took pictures of women that he thought were beautiful without them knowing it.

This is a book that I can't stop thinking about. It was easy to get into this new story by PD Workman, Henry is a fun character and one you come to love. I'm not sure quite how to categorize this story, it's part mystery, part psychological thriller, part YA lit, part life story, etc... The novel is told through Henry's eyes and admittedly about half-way through I was very confused as Henry's life continued on a downward spiral (there were times when I thought, how much farther down can this kid possibly GO?), I couldn't figure out what was going on, and there were times I was just so thrown off kilter that I about gave up, but yet, I HAD to keep reading! I HAD too! lol! I wanted to figure out what in the world was happening with Henry in his mind and in his real life and what was really going on. Now, I'm on pins and needles hoping that Ms. Workman will release the next book soon because I feel like I have to know what happens to Henry and his baby brother Bobby. This book will leave you thinking about your own life, your own thoughts and what really goes on each and every day. Really unique story and an interesting point of view. This story also gives insight on how quickly and easily it can be for a "good" kid to get on the wrong path and how hard it can/would be to get back on the right path. Truly a thought-provoking book!
