Daniel Clay Daniel Clay does wonderfully at re-telling of Harper lee's Classic "To Kill a Mockingbird". I really can’t stress enough that I would never have sat down to write Broken had I not read To Kill a Mockingbird or a newspaper article about how it had come to be written. Daniel Clay does wonderfully at re-telling of Harper lee’s Classic To Kill a Mockingbird. Set in England, it follows the story of eleven- year-old, Skunk Cunningham, whom we discover is in a coma in the first few pages of the book. Her father, Archie Cunningham (much like the beloved Atticus Finch) is raising Skunk and her brother, Jed, alone.
In his debut novel, Clay takes the teenage anxiety and social disharmony of Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird and transposes them to three families in a fictional Hampshire neighbourhood. His teenage narrator, Skunk, lies in a coma as she recounts the brutal events that unfold in Drummond Square. The equivalent of Lee's reclusive Boo Radley is Rick Buckley, who becomes housebound when he's beaten up. The local children give Rick the nickname "Broken" and spread rumours that he's a murderer.
When the body of a young woman is discovered deep beneath the icy waters of Lake Grant, a note left under a rock by the shore points to suicide. But within minutes, it becomes clear that this is no.
