Break This House by Candice IIoh is an incredibly raw and emotional read. While not my usual genre, I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Candice Iloh masterfully tells the heartwrenching story of Yaminah Okar as she faces the ramifications of the death of her mother, and her relationships with her surviving damily members. The interpersonal relationshipsthe characters have feel very real and believable, as well as their actions and motivations. I found myself drawn to the characters and wanting to learn more about their backstories. I'd hesitate to call this a quick read, even though it is a relatively short book, only because the emotional sections are fairly heavy, so it isn't light reading by any means. Overall, Break This House was a great read that I would recommend to anyone looking for and emotional and dramatic story.
