5 Second Review: "The World Breaks Everyone" by Lauren Clark


Book: The World Breaks Everyone

Author: Lauren Clark

My Rating: ★★1/2

Synopsis: Every day, I wake up certain of only three things: I am responsible for my mother's death. My father has vanished. Someone wants me dead. I'm on the run. It's me against the world. I cannot let it break me. When sixteen-year-old Olivia Jacobs and her celebrity chef father are brutally attacked after his French Quarter restaurant opening, the shell-shocked Olivia finds herself on the run on the streets of New Orleans. Who wants her dead? And why?

Disclaimer: I was provided a free copy by the author for an honest review.

      What really hurt this book was there were a lot of errors and inconsistencies with plot and especially characters. Gosh there were so many issues with the actual characters themselves and the characterization. It's like this book wasn't edited properly because a lot of things were clearly overlooked. As far as plot, it was basic, highly predictable, and not at all plausible. The whole scenario surrounding the character Olivia being on the run doesn't make any sense. Kate's whole plot and background could have been removed honestly as it added nothing. Overall I feel like the story has potential, but there need to be some real edits and reworking done to the plot and characters.
