How far would you go to fit in?

Paul is new to Gate, a school whose rich students make life miserable for anyone not like them. And Paul is definitely not like them. Then, something incredible happens. Charlie Good, a star student and athlete, invites Paul to join his elite inner circle. All Charlie wants is a few things in return--small things that Paul does willingly. Until one day Charlie wants something big--really big.

Now Paul has to decide how far he'll go to be one of the gang.

The electrifying follow-up to Alex Flinn's critically acclaimed debut novel, Breathing Underwater, Breaking Point is a tale of school violence that explores why and how a good kid can go 'bad'.

Breaking Point
I liked reading breaking point. I think that Alex Flynn paints an amazing story with her words. I liked the characters. And I still remember the plot. I think that she writes about something that a lot of people think about.

I read this book because I had read Beastly by the same author. That was a great book and thats why I picked up this book.

This was an okay book. I personally did not really the plot of it and was un able to picture the book in my head and put a "movie" to the book. Because with other books I am able to through the whole book. But, with this book I was able to do it at certain times when the story was reaching a climax but, then other parts were just okay. If you understand what I mean.


But, it was a good book and I would recommend it to people who like Young Adult books.

Paul goes to a rich private prep school, the only reason he's there is because his mother works in the office.
His mother and father have gotten a divorce and he never sees his father anymore, and his mother seems to be trying to hard to continue to have a close relationship with him. At school he's a misfit, until Charlie Good, a rich popular kid seems to take an interest in him. But what is Charlie's interest in him? Charlie makes Paul feel like he fits, but Charlie wants Paul to do some small things for him, is he building up to bigger things.

This was a good book and a quick read, but there's just nothing special about it. Charlie and Paul come off as believable characters, it's just hard to believe the events that happen to Paul and he never goes and tells anyone. His relationship with his father also stretches the bonds of believability.

Breaking Point was absolutly amazing for many reasons. First of all the whole like next generation of anarchy was what really caught my attention but when I got into it I discovered it was trying to talk about something else. It talks about like how you cant always trust everyone, who youre real friends are, and like it really shows you the side of school that most people try to ignore. I mean, I was drawn in the entire time just trying to keep up with it. I was so captivated. And the end really pulls at you. A very good book I definatly suggest it. There was one quotes still cant get out of my head and I am constantly repeteting to myself: " IM A BAT< WANNA SEE ME FLY?". If you read the book you'll know exactly what Im talking about.
