I was hoping for a lot more interacting between them since there was so much for them to work through side-by-side, but instead view spoiler [ both boys were turned around by girls.

Despite not talking to you more than once or probably! Psychiatric hospitals also wouldn’t allow kissing and other romantic touch. I think I was just let down by all the things I heard.

I give this book 5 stars out of 5. I was so completely emotionally invested in these characters that I cried at least four times – and I hardly ever crackec moved to tears by books maybe only around 10 in the whole history of my reading life post childhood. I thought I would loathe him because he is a bully. And then after what is perceived as Bull’s suicide attempt the two end up as roommates in the psych ward of the hospital. Walton takes a deeper look at the horrendous effects bullying has on both parties.

Bull and Victor’s relationship with each other at the end was also confusing; they k.mwalton grown closer but at the same time drifted apart, and didn’t seem to have strengthened as much as I thought they would. And while Walton has conjured a compelling supporting cast of characters, it’s Cracked’s two vulnerable yet tenacious protagonists that will win your heart.


Cracked by K.M. Walton

Bullying is an important issue, and, while I’m glad more autho It wasn’t written terribly, but the plot and characters felt more like an after school special than real people.

That’s what has happened to Victor. A total contemporary nerd. Then they’re committed for five days and after four days they’re magically cured? Also, Victor is terribly harassed by Bull. They never show him any love or anything. k.walton

It’s a simple as that. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. The young adult reader will probably enjoy it. I love this book because it shows that everyone has their own problems in life, and that there’s always a backstory as to why people act a certain way. I didn’t really understand Victor’s relationship with Nikole.

Those few days spent at the hospital are healing to both boys as they see that maybe they do have some self worth, a new concept for them both. Jul 29, Hannah rated it it was ok Shelves: When the boys wake up from their hospital treatment, they find themselves in the same room.

There is one place Bull is happy though, the graveyard, where he brings books that he buys brand new to read in peace and silence and also hides away the cash he saves from work. Cracked is very fast paced. I always wonder what makes a parent be nasty to their children or why someone becomes a bully at school.

I was glad that the k.m.waltin ended up in a happy place and were able to recover from their issues, but it seemed unlikely to have everything suddenly become sunshine and rainbows. I was hoping to see more of what happens within the school environment as that is where we hear about the problems occurring the most.

Victor, on the other hand, is the bullied and allows himself to be picked on because that’s crzcked way he’s grown up. The characters seemed to be the strongest point of the book.

The book became a lot more romance based as the story went on, and while this isn’t a bad thing it seemed to come out of nowhere, and all of a sudden the romance was becoming a lot bigger. And as we are shown the life he has we see a boy who also is an accident and lives in a place with no bedroom for him with a mother who has no clue what the word mother means and a grandfather who regularly smacks him around. After reading the synopsis of this book, I thought it was I was really looking forward to reading this book.
