    Description

    Brian 

    You’ll make it out of here, Brian. I swear. 

    I had everything — school quarterback, popular with girls, and my dad was proud of me. I told myself it didn’t matter no one knew the real me.

    And then I nearly died. Landon saved my life. He’s the bravest guy I know. He came out a few years ago, proud and fierce, and he ran into gunfire to help others. Me, I’m a mess. Can’t even stand to be in a room with the curtains open. But here’s the thing about losing it all: You get a chance to start over and be someone new. 

    Only how can I move on when the two shooters who attacked our school were never caught? And why do I feel like I’m still in the crosshairs?  

    Landon 

    Will you kiss me? 

    When I came across Brian Marshall, the hottest guy in school, dying on the cafeteria floor, I did what anyone would do. I tried to save him. His request surprised me, but I figured he needed comfort, so I kissed him on the forehead. 

    When he survived and came back to school, he was broken in body and mind. He still needed me, and soon we were unlikely besties. But what I saw at school that day woke me up. I want to demand action on gun control, lead protests, raise my fist. I’ll tear the world down if I have to. And if I can get the man of my dreams and save the world at the same time? I’ll take it. Only I didn’t understand that the horror at Jefferson Waller High wasn’t over.

    A heartbreaking hurt/comfort romantic suspense!

    This book was heartfelt, moving and carried a bigger message.

    This is a contemporary young adult, romantic suspense with hurt/comfort, opposites attract and is high on the angst.

    This definitely wasn't an easy listen.
    This book will break your heart ansd put it back together. I felt a whirlwind of emotions while listening to this.
    The setting of the story was inspired by Parkland and the students that have protested against gun violence.

    The characters were real, relatable and well fleshed out and the writing was engaging and gripping.

    Tristan Josiah performed a flawless and raw audio delivery.

    wonderful

    Boy Shattered by Eli Easton is a wonderfully told story that had me emotional, and had me glued to the story.  I loved the connection that formed between Brian and Landon, the beauty that emerges from a tragedy.  I definitely had a lot of feelings listening to the audiobook.  Between the spectacular writing of Eli Easton and the Wonderful narration by Tristan Josiah, I felt like I could be part of the scenes, feeling the emotions - the fear, the anger, the sorrow, the peace and the love.

    Absolutely Amazing

    I loved this book, read it several times. And was so happy seeing it in audio.
    The narrator was new to me but I was very impressed over the absolutely amazing job he did brining Brian and Landon to life in audio.

    Very enjoyable and highly recommendable, a must listen!

    Excellent

    I couldn't stop listening to this book. The trauma Brian faces after being shot in school is so true to life that its almost hard to listen to but thats also what makes it so great. Landon saved his life but his trauma plays out in rage and wanting to petition for more gun control, for making changing that will have lasting change. Meanwhile Brian is scared to go back to school seeks out shooters when he is in public and has trouble sleeping due to the nightmares. But in the midst of all the chaos Brian also learns that life is short and sometimes you have to choose to hide or stand up. Although this book is full of hard stuff and reading about mass shooting is no easy task it is so well done that I couldn't stop reading. Yes it is horrific but like the news I couldn't turn it off. Excellent reading. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Prepare yourself for an Amazing book!

    Truthfully this book will definitely pull at your heart string's multiple times! In this book you look at two students who have survived a school shooting, and the struggles of coming out between an accepting family and a non accepting family.

    Touching and Timely

    Alert for trauma survivors. Enter with faith, and holding a trusted hand.

    The tragic opening chapters knocked me down, so I paused and listened to 4 other books before feeling emotionally capable of resuming this one. I knew it had to get better since I have listened to every other one of this author's books and trusted that it would get better, and it did. Eli Easton brings empathy and compassion to all her shattered characters.

    LGBTQ twist on current affairs that affect everyone. Provocative.

    Finally! A Narrative w/ Relevancy for 2020.

    At first, I thought I would struggle with the story line but it was so much more than I was expecting. It was not just about another tragic school shooting, it was about the rage, violence and insanity that has gripped a large number of Americans over the last 4 years. It called out the "MAGA's Mania" and went right into a critical connection that exists between them and hatred of "others". The sweet love story was tastefully and sympathically presented. I loved the growth of the connection between the two teenagers and the way the mystery was solved. This is the first review I've written & would give it 10 stars if I could. My gratitude to the author, for her sensitive and thoughtful story...I'm looking forward to more of Eli Easton's writing but she has a huge challenge to top this story.

    Heart-achingly beautiful

    Beautifully written and narrated story of a horrific experience of gun violence and it's aftermath. I admit I was nervous to read this tale as I have teenaged sons myself, but I'm glad that I did. The story brought me to tears multiple times - the author and narrator really brought all the feels. The characters were well developed and memorable. I think this story will stay with me a long time.

    The narrator and his chocolaty voice sound super cool and thus make the main characters sound like people you just gotta make friends with. I don’t know what it is about the narrator’s voice, but it has an addicting quality to it, so the book was riveting from the very first syllable. It was so intoxicating I feared the author’s storytelling would prove unworthy. But I had no reason to worry. The book’s vocabulary and dialog turned out to be super-cool as well. And that makes the characters all the more lovable. Then quickly, while you’re still basking in the narrator’s charm, tragedy breaks out, and the book tightens its grip on you. Later, while enjoying the budding high school romance, a whodunnit develops, pulling you even further into this excellent adventure.
