The Science of Breakable Things Reviews

  • Wendy MacKnight

    What a beautiful, wonderful book! The impact of depression is dealt with in a wonderfully accessible way, and Keller does an amazing job of letting us walk in Natalie’s shoes. Add in a caring teacher, two lovable best friends, and #science project, this is a not-to-be missed book!

  • Steven Copp

    This book was outstanding! Deals with a lot of real issues, and includes some fun STEM themes as well. Highly recommended!

    Thanks to the author and publisher for sharing a copy of this book with @kidlitexchange for review! All opinions are my own.

    YAY for girls + SCIENCE!!! My 6th grade daughter is majorly into science and it is SO hard to find books for her that fit this interest area, so I was ecstatic to start reading this and realize just HOW science-y it is! The entire story is based on the scientific method and the science projects of Natalie and her friends, along with a storyline about Natalie's botanist moth

    I would definitely recommend this book! It is an insightful story about a girl dealing with her mom’s depression. It was fascinating to read about how depression doesn’t just impact the person, but also the people in their life.

    Typically, I shy away from books about depression. I’m a HUGE fantasy person and nonfiction books about real life issues make me kinda depressed myself. I was surprised that this didn’t happen with this book! The author brilliantly wove humor into the story that made the

    This book was so touching and wonderful. I teared up! Full of STEM geek love, bubbling with emotion, fun, sass, great friends, family problems, friendship break-ups and make-ups, real 7th grade problems I recall all too well! And a real look at parental depression. Highly recommend this one. <3 <3

    Like most bibliophiles or anyone looking for a good read, I'm always delighted to stumble upon a new author, especially one with such a fresh and authentic voice. If this debut book, filled with heartfelt passages and cool references to science and the eight steps in the scientific process--in fact, the book is framed by these steps and various assignments from Mr. Neely, the class's science teacher--is any indication of this author's promise, I won't be the only one eagerly awaiting her next on ...more

    I saw this book, and I was curious. The author was employing one of my favorite things, science, to tell the story of a young woman dealing with her mother's mental health issues, and it was done beautifully.

    •Pro: Natalie was a charming and engaging narrator. Her voice was clear and real, and I cared very much about what she had to say.

    •Pro: Nat's squad was top notch. Twig was already her steadfast friend, who grew over the course of the book, and she demonstrated how she was a true friend and

    In her book, she'd written: Science is living. Science is asking questions and finding answers and never, ever stopping. I wanted to scream her own words at her, and I wanted to say, Why did you stop?


    Overall: An honest look at how mental health issues can affect others within a family, which was told thoughtfully and beautifully.
