"Swann’s elegant prose evokes poignant emotions as she delves deeper into the complex dynamics of a family suffering domestic violence.... With its swift narrative, in-depth characterization, and tight plotting, the novel makes for a fine YA contemporary." — The Prairies Book Review


"Her characters are authentic and true-to-life, making it easy to care about them... Breaking the Cycle is most highly recommended." — Readers' Favorite


Andrea Jones has one life goal—to NOT be like her mom. She won’t be knocked up at eighteen, in a dead-end job, and living in a trailer park forever. She’s not a fan of school but in 1987, going to college is the only path out of her dysfunctional world and nothing will stop her. Not even a chance at a full scholarship to her boss’s old beauty school—a job she’d totally rock but one that’s too close for comfort.


Then along comes Gio Ruiz. Suave, confident, and sure of his future, he sends Andrea’s plans into a tailspin—along with her heart. He seeks trade school and a simpler life, dangerously close to what she is trying to avoid. Still, his no-nonsense attitude toward the merits of college makes her question if it’s even what she really wants.


Their relationship flourishes until their opposite worlds collide. His private school peers create doubt while her public school enemies drag her past into the present, forcing her to confront her biggest fears and jeopardizing her plans for her future.


…An overdose. 

…An unintended pregnancy.

…And one potentially deadly choice.
