Review: Breaking Angelina – Rita Webb & T. J. Webb
For as long as she can remember, Angelina has been led by the voices in her head. They dictate her every thought, her every movement, her every feeling. Whatever they say, she must do, else she’ll suffer the consequences. The voices’ impulsion make her to do just about anything, causing her to do more harm than good.
Deep inside, she wishes she could be rid of the pesky voices. She’s tired of being a slave to their desires, tired of hearing the verbal lashings they inflict on her at every moment. Angelina knows there’s got to be a reprieve from them. She just has to find it. Surely, the answer to doing just that is right around the corner?
Eager to break free of the chains that bind her, Angelina stumbles on an idea she believes will help her overcome the darkness thriving within her. Little does she know, the voices are driving her toward an answer that might not prove to be beneficial. Fighting the turbulent forces within her, she’s soon catapulted in a direction she never expected to take.
Angelina will need to find the strength within herself to circumvent what’s coming her way. Granted, that’s easier said than done, but she’s determined to do so, none-the-less. The answers she’s looking for are closer than she thought. All she has to do is reach out and grasp what’s there. But first, she’ll need to overcome the demons that are insistent on claiming her for their own.
While I’ve started this series in the middle of it, so to speak, I’ve definitely found myself intrigued by it. Breaking Angelina dives straight into Angelina’s tumultuous life. She’s a girl hounded by forces who seek to claim the darkness she harbors within herself. While she might not understand what’s truly happening to her, she’s able to grasp the fact that she’s different from everyone else.
Rita and T. J. draw on Angelina’s frailties, bringing them to the surface in such a way that makes the reader truly feel for her. We find a girl whose broken but determined. She wants to be normal, to be loved for who and what she is. Those elements and more come through clearly throughout the story. While Angelina might find herself in such sticky situations, she always finds a way to come through, somehow. By the end of the book, she becomes both stronger and a tad endearing. I’m looking forward to what the next book in the series has to bring. Hopefully, Angelina will find her happiness some day. At least, we can hope, right?

About The Authors:
About Rita Webb:
Leaving the house to go to school, I had schoolbooks spilling out of one hand, the other holding my place in a Nancy Drew novel, and bunny slippers still on my feet. My mom was a wee bit upset.
I haven’t changed much. Still always have a book (or two) in my hand or creating stories in my head, and although I don’t have any bunny slippers, I love writing in my jammies and snuggly slipper socks.
With my husband TJ (my own cuddly werewolf), I home-school our three girls, who keep us busy with art, science projects, books to read, dance classes, and walks about the park.
About T. J. Webb:
A functioning bookaholic, I try to juggle church, homeschooling, writing, and reading large quantities of fiction, with mixed results.
When not threatening a pack of werewolves with massive amounts of silver damage, I can usually be found singing, quoting, or homeschooling. Sometimes all at once.
