Exuberant, heartbreaking, and alive with a potpourri of eccentric and irresistible characters, Broken for You is a testament to the saving graces of surrogate families and shows how far the tiniest repair jobs can go in righting the world's wrongs.
"[A] dreamy, powerful tale of familial warring, secrets, and redemption....This haunting, memorable debut is reminiscent of early Atwood, peopled by lovably imperfect and eccentric characters." (Publishers Weekly)
"A dazzling mosaic of intersecting lives and fates...[A] multi-layered rhapsody....Kallos has a rare, deft way with whimsy, dream sequences and hallucinations. Comparisons to John Irving and Tennesse Williams would not be amiss in this show-stopping debut." (Kirkus Reviews)

Wonderful story of mending and redemption
While this novel started out a little slowly, I was entranced within the first hour. It's a novel about all the ways we're broken and the ways we can heal by opening up to the people around us. The ending was a little predictable, but the story was wise and funny and well written. The narrator was wonderful. I enjoyed this selection more than anything I've listened to in months.
