Disclaimer: I received a review copy of this book in exchange for a review with my honest opinion. This, however, does not change my views on the book in any way, shape, or form. 

Blurb:
When Jason Marshall's younger sister passes away, he knows he can count on his three best friends and soccer teammates―Mario, Jordie, and Chick―to be there for him. With a grief-crippled mother and a father who's not in the picture, he needs them more than ever. But when Mario starts hanging out with a rough group of friends and Jordie finally lands the girl of his dreams, Jason is left to fend for himself while maintaining a strained relationship with troubled and quiet Chick. Then Jason meets Raine, a girl he thinks is out of his league but who sees him for everything he wants to be, and he finds himself pulled between building a healthy and stable relationship with a girl he might be falling in love with, grieving for his sister, and trying to hold onto the friendships he has always relied on. 
A witty and emotionally moving tale of friendship, first love, and loss, Breakaway is Kat Spears at her finest.

Some Notes:
☁ The writing: I absolutely loved the depth of the writing and I also felt that it was a very unique style. 

☁ Sad factor: This book has both a sad beginning and sad ending, but I did feel that this made the book stand out and gave it its voice. 

☁ Redundant: I felt that this book used the same phrases over and over again. I disliked this and felt a lack of creativity in this book.

☁ The Characters: I did not like the characters in this book, and although that did not make the book better, it did make the book different from others. 

Summary:

I would not recommend this to many people. I do think that this book is very different from others, and I respect the author for that.
