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.

I bought this a while back and when I read it I couldn't stop. It was both entertaining and well written. I would recommend this to anyone. I don't cry over just anything yet I found myself tearing up at the end. I won't go into details because it is better to just have a fresh mind going in. I felt as though this book could work for a variety of people and have recommended it to family and friends. I will be reading this book several more times in my life. Such an excellent book. I am looking forward to more to come from this author.
I first saw the movie and realized it was a book. I immediately ordered it. It far reached my expectations as Mr. Clay lets us get inside the characters heads. There are some very unsettling parts in the book but a very gripping, sad, funny and emotional read.
This is a funny, sad but true glimpse of British suburban life in the 21st Century. The narrator, Skunk is an instantly likeable 11 year old girl who tells the tale of her neighbours in the cul de sac she lives in. There is violence, underage sex, drugs and mental health issues all in her everyday life around her. However the story retains some very amusing snapshots of life in Hampshire, UK. Easy to read and entertaining.
Fast, spiraling, full of highs and lows, terrible violence and great love all at once. All told through the eyes of a young girl...
Love this book and the way it's written. I was pretty much hooked just from reading the sample text here, and it did not disappoint.
The novel Broken definitely gets "5 stars" and the condition of the book that was shipped to me gets "4 stars" having met my expectations.
A great book. It starts off a little too like To Kill a Mockingbird, but soon grows legs of its own and makes time run away with you. Really enjoyed this read, even if it was a horrific story.
This is an amazing novel. I stayed up all night reading it; just brilliant! The characters are so well written, the setting. I want to read everything Daniel Clay writes.
