Split by Swati Avasthi

Split is about a sixteen-year old boy named Jace Witherspoon who has a less then perfect life. His father abuses him along with his mother; before his brother Christian ran away, he abused him too. One day, it got to be too much for him to handle so he fought back with his father. Then, his father kicked him out, and he had nowhere left to go except Christian’s house. Once there, he thought he could get a new start on life and everything would finally go right. He was totally wrong. His ex- girlfriend threats to reveal his secrets and he constantly worries about his mother who refuses to leave her husband no matter how much he hurts her.

Split is a great novel that kept me guessing until the end, and it is one of those books that I kept wondering about even after it was finished. It is a great novel and one that could be read over and over again. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good read. I had trouble putting down. It is found in the Collins Hill library with the call number of FIC AVA. If you are looking for an easy book to read I would recommend it to everyone. It is not an overly girly book or one meant just for guys. It is a great book for teens and adults too.
