Audience/Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Fiction.
Publication: May 18th 2017.
After a notorious school shooting leaves her a shadow of the girl she once was, seventeen-year-old Lizzie Beringer moves to Nantucket Island. There, Lizzie vows to hide her identity as the shooter’s sister. All her efforts to fly under the radar, however, are complicated by her P.T.S.D. and the attention she receives from two competing boys. While fending off the not-so-subtle advances of popular athlete Michael Wickersham, she must also deal with her growing feelings for her shy lab partner Gage Pike. Gage may act like he’s all wrong for her, but the pull between them is undeniable. Under the threat of discovery and the possibility of testifying in a televised trial, Lizzie fights tokeep her secrets and start her life over. One Broken Day is a brilliantly imagined story exploring the ways we are all broken and at the same time, offered redemption in the most unexpected of places.

Reviewed by Kelly.

What would you do if you witnessed a school shooting and the shooter was your own brother? I don’t know what I would do or how I would feel. Lizzie, also now known as Lainey, saw her own brother kill 4 people at school. This book tugs at my heart! The book starts when she moves to Nantucket far away from her Hollywood life with her father as a film director and now lives with her mother after the divorce between her parents. They change their name and buy the house with a trust fund, aka cash, to be able to try and live a normal life. Or as normal as it can be for what Lainey witnessed with her now PTSD!

The events leading up to that day and surrounding it are given to us in pieces during the book. We only see the full picture at the end. The book is written in both Lainey and Gage’s Point of View. Gage is Lainey’s boyfriend, well eventually they get that way. But Gage only knows something happened to her in the past, he doesn’t know who she really is. Lainey tries to tell him but she just can't do it!

The story is really a sad one but Lainey, eventually with the help of her counselor and Gage, is able to move forward. But it is a hard road. The book just makes you think and feel!
