It's a bird...it's a plane...it's...a new book! Breaking Free is both a sequel to my first ever book Breaking Point, as well as a standalone book that can be read perfectly well by itself. It's the poignant story of a boy, Avrumie Faber, who has come back from a period of rebellion where he turned his back on Torah Judaism and now...now what? It's a story of self-discovery, of testing limits and finding what works. It's the story of a family that must come together and redefine itself. It's the story of determination, courage, and strength in the face of real challenge.
I wrote Breaking Free to address a specific, very relevant issue that many struggle with--both parents and teens who have undergone the trials and tribulations experienced by "Avrumie Faber". I have attempted to portray a clear, realistic picture of the "Okay, I want to get out of rebellion and get a life. How do I do it?" syndrome which is one that has been under-addressed. We've heard a lot about kids-at-risk; what do we do to help them get over their "risk"?
See it for yourself. While Breaking Point was more emotion-filled and character-dense, Breaking Free has a captivating plot while still preserving the behind-the-scenes emotions and thought processes that make my characters more three-dimensional and down-to-earth.
