Book Review - Broken Dreams

Book Review

Broken Dreams

by Cassidy K. O'Connor

5 out of 5 Stars

Note:  This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.

Twins Isabelle and Ian are in their senior year of high school when their lives are changed forever.  Ian has his life mapped out and is ready to play soccer in college while Isabelle is ready for her audition for Julliard.  A cruel twist of fate and those plans are dashed forever.  Since Ian can no longer live out his dreams, Isabelle decides to take it upon herself to live those dreams for him.  Those dreams that only the twins had discussed, so of course it comes as a surprise to everyone in her life.

In the way only life can, it throws its twists and turns at Isabelle.  She changed her dreams, she changed her love just to make other's dreams come true.  But, was it too much for her?  Through everything Conner, Ian's best friend, is there for Isabelle and stands by her side.  Can each hurdle that Isabelle has to cross be too much for Connor to handle, or will he manage to stay by her side and bear the burden with her?

This is an amazing story of love and loss, of dreams and fate.  I found myself crying throughout the book, but in a good way.  So many times we read books these days that have no point or have no story line.  Cassidy O'Connor found a fresh story to tell with such passion and such emotion.  It was a well paced story that never leaves you wondering where the story is going or what the point is.  Granted, depending on circumstances in one's life, this story may hit harder than for others.  But, it was an incredible story and one that I will definitely suggest to others - and go back and read again.  Well done O'Connor!  I can't wait to read others from you!
