Broken was actually a random book off the shelves that I'd never planned to read. Those always surprise me the most. It was just an unexpected surprise. It started off rather slow, but gradually picked up in pace. There were also a few plot twists that I really didn't see coming. I thought Broken was interesting, with all of the diseases and cures, and even the diagnostics. At first I had no clue why it was called a thriller, but I'm pretty sure I do now. Amazing and highly recommended.

Has a great plot twist! It started off slow but as I read on it turned into a book I just couldn't put down. It's an amazing read and I definitely recommend it to anyone who likes a bit of mystery and teenage fiction.
