A compelling account of the way violent crime warps the lives of several generations.
*Sunday Times*

*Lee Maracle, author of Celia’s Song*

A tough, close-up look at a side of female life that's often hard to acknowledge: the violence girls and women sometimes display towards other girls and women.
*Margaret Atwood*

The lives of the girls and women in The Break are not easy, but their voices are complex, urgent, and unsparing.
*Madeleine Thien*

Reading The Break is like a revelation; stunning, heartbreaking and glorious. Absolutely riveting.
*Eden Robinson, author of Monkey Beach*

I love a book that takes me to a new place, a world I know nothing about - and so it is with The Break.
*RTE Ireland*

Vermette, an award-winning poet, brings real lyricism to this hard-nosed tale of a rape on Native American land, and the unwillingness of the local police to investigate.
*Sunday Times, Best Summer Reads 2018*

A dazzling debut... The Break is a terrific achievement, combining passages of lyrical prose with a compelling account of the way that violent crime warps the lives of several generations.
