    This was a difficult story to read, yet also difficult to put down. It's the first book in a series, but does not end in a cliffhanger.

    This story is a tragedy based on reality. It's not just about mental illness. It's about poverty, opportunity, family, friendship, and moral values. Teenage years are often filled with confusion and strife. A good family and friend support system is essential for strong character development. Without it, one might be susceptible to repeating mistakes, making poor decisions, or doing very bad things. I've seen it. Such is the case for the main character in this horribly sad and sometimes chilling story.

    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. Sandy was shocked to find out that he had taken so many pictures of her and she didn't appreciate it either. She told him to not take pictures of her, and there is a big reason for that too.

    My heart broke for Henry through so much in this book and I was hoping that eventually things would work out for him and Bobby. If you want to know if they did you will have to read this book and the next two to find out the whole story. It will touch your heart and make you mad in many ways. I think the system had a part in the things that happened to Henry but that does not make everything okay.

    A heartwarming, sad, intense story that will keep you turning pages until the end. I loved it and gave it a 5 star rating... P.D. Workman has a wonderful gift and some of her books could very well help us all to see things about the mental health care system and the foster care system are not always what we think they are.

    I am confused as to the author's intent with this book, and what i mean by that is that the ending was no surprise. Was it supposed to be?? It's apparent all throughout the book what Henry is, what's he's been doing, so the ending was anticlimactic. I though the author did a brilliant job with Looking over your shoulder, but this one was a miss for me. I just skated on the periphery of Henry's world, rather than being drawn into it. He was a lukewarm character to me, a sketch.

    Intriguing book

    Book about a young, geeky boy and his troubled life. He keeps getting accused of murder but there is never enough evidence to convict him. Is he a good boy or is there a killer inside that geeky boy?

    A tragic life

    This is a great example of how a good kid's life can go to hell because of a lack of a proper environment and parental guidance.

    I feel bad rating it so low when I only got 3% into the book, but this was the 4th free book I started during my lunch hour and dropped. I think I actually started reading another of this author's books online and found the subject matter more to my taste. This author's writing style is very plain and clunky, with little tension or atmosphere. I may try again later, but probably not.

    Not my normal cup of tea, but a good read none the less.

    Not my normal cup of tea, but a good read none the less. A good coming of age story. Some people go through hell.
