Broken Dreams by Cassidy K. O'Connor is an emotional young adult coming of age story about the possibility of reclaiming second chances. Isabelle and her twin brother Ian are excited to finally graduate high school. Isabelle wants to dance at Julliard and Ian has soccer scholarships to the colleges of his choice. But Isabelle knows a secret about her twin brother. His plans aren't to go to college and play soccer. He wants to join the Army and make a difference in the world.

When tragedy strikes, it is up to Isabelle to carry on the memory of her brother through the legacy he meant to leave behind. She is determined to put her own dreams aside so that she can fulfill the dreams her brother had of honor and service and dedication. But when tragedy strikes a second time, Isabelle isn't sure she's strong enough to continue. All she wants is a second chance to reach for her dreams. And she'll need the love and support that she finds in an unexpected relationship to carry her through this emotional journey.

This is a very beautiful and emotional story that will threaten even the most hardened reader with tears. It is part romance and part coming of age story, but mostly it is about life and loss and what makes a person endure when they just want to give up. What is important to some people is hard for others to understand, and that is some of the exploration of grief that readers can expect in this story.

From the Author

Broken Dreams was my first YA romance book. I was inspired by the power of the emotions author John Green was able to bring to a YA audience in a contemporary story. Broken Dreams was a departure from some of my other romance novels and novellas in that I wanted to bring Isabelle to a place where life seemed to have torn her down. I wanted readers to connect with Isabelle in their own ways but ultimately understand the pain she had gone through. I wanted to take readers to where Isabelle was and feel her pain so that they could then feel her strength return and feel empowered along with her.
