Disgusted with himself and unableMoreRejecting the upbringing he received from an impossibly demanding father and an inappropriately affectionate mother, Benjamin Thompson has spent his life chasing the numb silence that dancing with heroin affords him. Disgusted with himself and unable to move forward from the ways his parents hurt him, he will do anything to get the drugs that kill his thoughts.As he falls further into the darkness that his addiction sends him to, he unexpectedly finds hope for his redemption in the form of a young girl that reflects back to him the best and worst of himself. Driven by the need to possess her and make her understand the pain he has experienced, Benjamins actions become increasingly violent and unstable as his addictions and obsessions take him over, threatening to destroy them both and anyone that may come between them.Breaking the Reflection takes the reader on a journey through the life of a young man as he goes from an inexperienced and lively child with a world of potential before him to an aged and destroyed adult with a heavy dependency problem and an ever-narrowing window of opportunity to save himself. Its a story of betrayal and love, regret and addiction, and the undying belief that no one is beyond salvation.
