Broken People, by Scott Hildreth continues to get reviews that come in, at the rate of a few a day. They are all (5) star, except 3. Total, there are 32 five star reviews, and 3 (4) star.

Yesterdays review by 1Booklover was great. 5 stars. She stated that she was afraid that she couldn’t even do the book justice in her review. She stated that it was a “Must read” for parents and teens alike.

A must read. That, of course, means that it is their recommendation that you “must” read it.

This book was written with the intent of any age (above 14)  being able to read it and have it effect them. It actually crawls within you, and flows through your veins like an infection. The characters are all real, raw, and full of life. The book is written from the perspective of the five characters, individually, in first person. The story unfolds, and the each character’s life is somehow tied to the other. In the end, they are all tied together.

This book is similar to Thirteen Reasons Why meets The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Be an adult, or be a teen…or anything in between, you will leave this book a different person. A richer person. It will, at minimum, leave you thinking about who you are, and what got you to this point in life. Additionally, it will have you second guessing what it is that you intend to do with the rest of your life.

If you are a parent of a teenagers, or have children in high school, you must read this book. You must. It will change the way you look at them. When you’re done, have them read it.

You will be forever grateful you did.

Scott Hildreth, author of Broken People

From time to time, a book comes along, and makes you stop. It makes you stop and second guess who you are, what you’re doing in life, with life, and for the ones you love. This is that book. Through colorfully painted characters, “Broken People” forces the reader to reflect on self. There will be a broken part of you in one (or all) of these characters, guaranteed. This is one powerful read. It will truly leave you sitting and wondering about life when you complete it.

A woman in Texas messaged me yesterday when she completed it. She said she was going to immediately read it AGAIN. She said, when asked, that this book was remarkable, and certainly a treasure. A masterpiece. Get a copy today, $3.99 at Amazon. If you read, you should be reading this book.

Broken People, by Scot Hildreth; a book that makes you value life, living, and being loved.

You owe it to yourself to read this book. You do. Everyone that reads this book agrees, it is one of the best books that they have ever read. Now that is a bold statement. Last nght, three people emailed me regarding the book. All three said it was the best book they had ever read. Ever.

None were suicidal. None had suicidal thoughts. None were necessarily “Broken”. They just picked it up over the weekend because it was a promo weekend, and it was free.

This book is deep. It has moments of hilarity. Moments of seriousness. Moments of ‘holy shit, what just happened?”. Moments that will make you reflect on childhood, and moments that will have you questioning just what type of parent you are.

If you’re between the ages of 15-75, read this book. It’s $3.99. The cost of a cup of Starbuck’s coffee.

And you’ll never be the same.

Broken People, the novel by Scott Hildreth is working…..

A lady in Alabama emailed me (I placed my email address in the introduction page of my book). She said on Fourth of July, her friend committed suicide. She read the book in one day, the 7th.
Her review is below. Wow.
“I will admit the book starts a tadbit slow. But, once the characters are developed and the dots start connecting, it is a page turner. I was eager to see where each character was going to go with the theme of the book. I can definately tell the writer put his heart and soul into this book, and that is refreshing. To not just put something out for a paycheck, but put something out that they are passionate about. It is rare to see that in a book. I am typically a romance novel reader, so I am used to a bit more description about the characters in the books, but that I feel does not detract from the meaning in the book and it’s purpose. I recently dealt with the suicide of a friend so this book resonated with me deeply. This is a very clean written book that would be a wonderful book to introduce into school curriculums at the pubescent age, it may save lives. That is if schools would stop making suicide a taboo thing and introduce it as a chapter in the development of children. Move with the times people. This book is a MUST read, not for its for art thou shakespearian intellect, but for it’s raw emotions and real people. Thanks Scott, STAY HUMAN. ”  – interestingrl review on Amazon.com
Also, someone sent me the following picture, from “Whisper”. I guess it’s a Tumblr like site.
Lastly, a cut and paste from the book. An Egyptian girl has just received a brand new BMW for her birthday. She depressed, suicidal, and disgusted with her parents.
Placing my phone back into my purse, I turned, looking at my parents. My father reached into his pocket and pulled out the keys, dangling them from his fingers, as if he were going to drop them in the driveway.
“Do you like?” he asked. He began, with my mother and sister, to walk in my direction.
“Here, take the keys. It is yours Britney,” he continued.
“It’s white. And it’s a BMW. I wanted a Mercedes, father.” I explained as I walked toward them.
“You do not appreciate the gift?” he asked.
“Father, I appreciate the gift, yes. Thank you.” I wiped my eyes and tried to smile.
As he handed me the keys, he held his arms out, opening them wide to give me a hug. Reluctantly, I gave him a hug. As I did, I began to softly cry. My father was so inconsiderate, and probably made me cry more than anyone else I know. Probably more than everyone else combined. He just didn’t understand. Being sixteen and being a girl was so impossible. Getting someone to love you is so impossible. Being happy is so impossible. Hugging him made me want to just die.
Stepping back, I took the keys from his hand, and dropped them into my purse. “Can we go now?” I pleaded.
“Do you wish to drive?” my father asked.
The night before, I had been up until 4:00 am, updating my Twitter, Facebook, posting photos on Instagram, Snap Chat, and Tumblr, and updating videos on Vine and YouTube. “No, father, I am tired, and just care to ride.” I stated, attempting to wipe my eyes free of any tears.
“Are you pleased?” he asked, smiling. He continued to squint through his retarded glasses.
Frustrated, ready to leave, and tired, I lied. “Yes, father, I am pleased.”
Overall, I was pleased about the gift. I stood and stared at it, disappointed at what it was. My sister, mother, and father started walking to the garage, all talking, looking at the car. I stood and stared at it, thinking to myself. How could they actually expect me to make any form of progress in finding someone to love me, if I were to be seen driving this car every day. It was almost as if it were some form of punishment. Like a scar on my face that would prevent someone from actually seeing me for who I am. They would see the car and just say “no” before they got a chance to actually see who I was. People could be so shallow. So inconsiderate. So fake. Fake people were so prevalent in my school. All I want out of life is for someone to love me truly for who I am. How could they expect that to ever happen if I was forced to drive the white BMW?
Some of the girls in school did drive cars that were similar to the white BMW, but they are prettier than I am. They are always pretty. They wear makeup. They don’t have as nice of a collection of clothes as I do, and they don’t have my sense of fashion, but they are pretty. I am pretty, but it takes time. I have to wear makeup, which my father prohibits, have my hair fixed, and be dressed properly. If I have enough time, I can be almost as pretty as the prettiest girls in my school, but not quite. I needed this car to be the thing that put me over the top of the other girls. Something that put me in a category all by myself. Something that defined who I was.
READ THIS BOOK. you will see what the few that have read it are talking about.
