Seventeen-year-old Del is in a hurry to leave Los Angeles. But on the day of her escape, she's stopped short - by a day-long traffic jam. Eight years later, it's opening night of her one woman show about a day spent in gridlock. Could the show reveal that a day wasted in traffic is anything but?

Breakout is the latest innovative work of Paul Fleischman. His other celebrated books include Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices, which is a Newbery Medal Winner and winner of the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award for Fiction/Poetry. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " I don't know why I even considered finishing this book except, that due to a bad head cold, my eyes hurt too bad to read, and I didn't want to get out of bed to get another audio cassette. . . "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bobby | 8/27/2013

    " Fleischman's book is creative and tells an interesting story well, but the story at times is rather drawn out and void of progression. The voice of Del is well developed and provides a strong female character finding herself after years of doubt. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Spectra | 10/26/2012

    " It was written with a good layout, but very boring. no offense to Mr. Fleischman, but true. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tim DeFrange | 5/6/2012

    " I admit that there were moments in this book when I felt amazed at Del's ingenuity and talent. But the novel on the whole didn't seem to go anywhere as a story. I just didn't feel captivated as I waded through this story. "

    " I was not going to give this one star but then it would look like I just did not do the star rating. "

    " I've read other books by this author and loved them but this one I just didn't get and couldn't get through it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jessie | 12/6/2011

    " I don't even know what made me decide to read this. There is nothing about the concept that is interesting. In fact, the whole story is rather dull. Very boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 9/29/2011
