Towards the end of the book, I feel as if the editing was rushed. Also, there was A LOT packed into the book. There were a lot of twists and turns in Breaking Free and though they were all appropriately placed, I would have loved to seen a sequel to the book. There was a part of the end of this book that I think would have made a great beginning for a second book. And then of course, explain what ended up happening to all the characters.
Overall, I really did enjoy the book and would recommend it. It's a book that makes you think and evaluate your life. There are sensitive subjects in the book, therefore if you are younger, I would steer clear of this. Everyone else needs to read this book though!!

Mal and JC capture you in the beginning and don't let go till you read the end and then you just want to start it all over again. Couldn't get enough of it. Loved the story, how it went about the real problems some deal with all the time. I loved Mal's will to keep going even if she had doubts, not everybody can do this and not everybody wants to. Do to SM Koz I want to say for a first book I read from you it was quite the impact it left on me. Hope to read more soon because this was really a five star read and certainly more.
The main character's name is Mal who is 16 turns 17 during the course of the book, and she has become a cutter after her forever best friend died in a car accident she feels responsible for. She has a Father that works a lot who is rarely at home which leaves her with Step-Mother (Sheila) who only cares about money, and how she appears to society. Instead of really trying to be the love and support Mal needs Sheila verbally tears her down, and sends her off to a month long Wilderness Therapy where you meet JC, Mia, Neeky, Bling, and Councilors Chris, and Jason; However, everyone gets more then they bargained for on this trip. When Mal gets back she feels very alone, confused, depressed, and feels like the only one that even remotely cares for her is her Nanny Marta, who she finally begins to open up to. That's when you really start to see how deeply Mal is hurting and crying out for help but just doesn't know how to do it.
Needless to say without giving to much away this book is FULL of ups, downs, twists, and turns that will keep you wanting to read just one more chapter, or in the case of this book find out about just one more day. I would HIGHLY recommend this book to any parent, or young person that is going through tough times. You don't have to be a cutter in order to learn something from Mal's journey.
