Stephanie fights reality every day. The voices inside, the ones declaring her worth, deem her broken, used and dirty. She is an object. A toy. Something to be tossed aside when bored. Who will believe her if she whispers the truth about her wrecking ball of a family? Eventually, her secret explodes and the person who means the most to her knows just how shattered she is and why she's so afraid. But rescue is closer than she realizes. Hidden in plain sight, her horror hasn’t been ignored by everyone. Racing against the truth of what she faces, forces are joining together and developing a plan to free her from the hell in her own backyard. And while she’s at her lowest point, she’s hit with the beauty of love at any cost - redemption in the face of ruin. Will it be enough?

Every time someone would ask me, “What is your saddest book you’ve ever read,” I would automatically answer, A Child Called It. I read this book when I was a freshman in high school and this book has forever stayed in my heart. Now, after reading Every Shattered Thing, I know I would mention both books whenever I am asked this question. Every Shattered Thing is extremely sad. And if you know by now, I am a sucker for sad stories.

Every Shattered Thing is not only a sad story but an eye opening. It is so disgusting to know that people with power can simply look the other way whenever one is need. You would expect these role models to help out their students but unfortunately, some are afraid to get involve, not knowing this can save many lives.

Stephanie is a high school student who is trapped in a life that no one would dare imagine. Her own father, a sick bastard, has not only has he beaten her since she was twelve, but has put her up for prostitution. This man is sick! OMG I hate him!

Poor Stephanie, with the very little people in her world to help her out, she tried hard to gain hope. But in her situation, this is very hard to hold on to. What got me all worked up is that many of her teachers used to see the bruises, but they would look away, afraid to get involve. I just couldn’t deal with this. I was frustrated to know that this happens in real life. How can someone so little deal with this alone? Knowing and hoping that someone with power would help them.

Every Shattered Thing deals with abuse and sexual assault, so please, this is a tough subject but it is not suitable for young audience. Nonetheless, this was an outstanding read. Elora has written this book in Stephanie’s point of view, so her pain becomes yours. You will be left shattered after finishing this book. And it is sad to know that you will have to wait for the next book to know the outcome of Stephanie’s happiness.

About Elora:

Elora Ramirez lives in Austin, Texas with her chef-husband. At the age of four, she taught herself how to read and write, cutting her teeth on books like Dr. Seuss and writing anywhere she could find the space--including her Fisher Price kitchen set, the pages of picture books and Highlights Magazine. Since then, she's grown to love the way words feel as they swell within her bones. Writing holy and broken is her calling, and pushing back the darkness and pursuing beauty through story is her purpose. She embraces the power of story and teaches women from all parts of the world how to embrace theirs. She has a knack of calling things out , the truth and the detail, the subversive threads that make a life a story. She loves hip-hop, wishes she lived by the beach and cannot write without copious amounts of coffee, chocolate, music, and her husband's lavender liqueur.
