This book is a must read for anyone especially the early teens. All kids between 12-16 should read this book. This will show them that there is no quick fix to life. Be happy with who you are and you will make it through life just fine. This is a great and inspiring story that all kids should know.

If I was could sum up this book in one word, it would be WOW (capitalized for effect). This is an incredibly powerful story chock full of emotion and drama.

Spencer is a high school senior who feels insignificant and powerless. He comes from a dysfunctional family, including a verbally and occasionally physically abusive mother, and he is being bullied at school with no one to turn to for help. Spencer feels he is alone in the world with his pain, and his greatest fear is of turning into his much-hated father. Spencer realizes he needs to take action to turn his life around, but he is looking for a quick fix with immediate results, no matter the consequences.

Spencer's character was nothing short of amazing. The way the author was able to portray Spencer's feelings of self-loathing, fear, and loneliness on the pages of this book made the story absolutely heart wrenching to read. We were able to get inside his head and were able to see his rationalizations for his actions, and even though he knew the consequences of the steroids and could see them being played out with a negative impact on his health and his friendships, he still thought what he was doing was okay because it would help him get noticed, be liked by other people, and ultimately be somebody.

I loved that we were able to get to know Spencer pre-steroids and then were able to journey with him over the timeframe of the story, watching the consequences of his decisions play out and how those consequences, plus other external forces (family and friends), change his outlook on life as he eventually realizes that he may not be as alone in the world as he thought.

The best kind of book is one that leaves you thinking about it long after you've read the last word. Fix by Force is that kind of book. Ultimately, I am going to recommend this book to everyone I know, as it is the kind of story that every parent and teen should read.

Format: Paperback
My journey with the main character, Spencer through this novel was an intense one. The emotions played out are riveting. Spencer is a young man lost, depression rules him. Losing faith in himself and hope which is completely understandable seeing as Spencer feels he can't turn to anyone or he will be bullied more. Which all of us can relate too. Teenage years are the hardest but to feel like the loser, is even harder. To hurt, almost desperate for someone to hold you, see you. Even when Spencer is bullied and the teacher comes to him and asks him, so desperate to fit in Spencer lies to cover for the perpetrator. This novel took me through so many feelings I couldn't put it down. Reading it through the night.

As a parent I was horrified at the bullying, my heart went out to Spencer. He was drowning in a world of pain, like we too often see. This book took me back to me in high school to a realization that I too was guilty of some bullying. But knowing that I did it too feel better about myself because I too like Spencer went home to a mother who didn't care or respect me. Often the bullied turn to things that are not going to "fix" a problem but make it worse. In Spencer's case it was steroids.

Spencer turned to steroids to "fix" himself. I enjoyed reading this book, made me wake up and think about all the things that teenagers have to endure. But Jason's novel also made me reflect on all the trials in life that we can overcome, how to think about the good things with in ourselves. Fix by Force when leading up to and into Spencer's drug use, gives you first hand how someone having a substance abuse problem reacts, how they feel. I would recommend this novel to young adults. I know parents might be a little cautious of the drug use, but Jason writes in a way to help.

Format: Paperback
At first glance Fix by Force is a classic bully-story filled with self-esteem issues, family life problems, and overwhelming emotion. But Jason Warne crafts the story in a way that really pulls you in, and before long you realize that you are Spencer. You are fighting against the temptation that is steroids, and you are trying to overcome labels and bullies. It's that truth that makes this fictional story so powerful. Maybe it's not steroids, maybe it's not bullies, but there is something that we each struggle with, and that makes Fix by Force an entirely applicable book that never stops grabbing at its readers' emotions.

I wouldn't call this Christian fiction, as God is mostly absent from the story. (At least, He's not directly mentioned.) On the one hand I'm a little disappointed by that, but on the other hand I see strong Christian values without them being spelled out, and that gives more hope to this novel landing in the hands of people who don't want to be preached at. (There's also a very few instances of profanity, but I was really happy with how clean this book is considering the topic.)

Fix by Force is short but powerful. The writing is great, and the added twists and turns in the novel make it all the more enjoyable. It's not an easy read because the topic is not easy, but I dare you to walk away from the book without being changed. I highly recommend it.

(I received a complimentary copy of Fix by Force from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.)
