My thoughts:

Breaking Möbius follows the independent and intertwined stories of three characters as they navigate life and reveal in each character the best and worst of human nature. 

Horne gives her reader each character in first person.  Mali is the first to emerge and the reader learns of her survival of childhood abuse and neglect and ready to begin a new chapter in her life at college.  She meets another student, Justice, a star football player, who Mali is instantly attracted to.  Unfortunately, he is nursing a broken heart and isn’t ready to pursue anything more serious than friendship; at least at the moment.

Nicole, Justice’s ex-girlfriend, is the final main character the reader encounters.  Nicole is a complex character; beautiful, driven, self-absorbed, manipulative, but conflicted.  As she is caught in the midst of a life decision so is the reader who Horne skillfully keeps in the dark as to what Nicole’s ultimate fate will be. 

Breaking Möbius was a well-written novel with something for everyone; suspense, romance, sexy and was truly skillfully character driven.  I enjoyed following the characters as they lived and as those lives crossed and intertwined.  I often found myself cheering them on or cringing, as I feared they might make a fatal misstep.  The novel was definitely much like life; a ride of the highest ups and the lowest lows, but a ride and a read worth the effort.
