"You've been captive far too long," she whispered. "So I'm releasing you."
The universe was bathed in white light, and as I touched the azure and ruby stars dancing above my head, the crack within me split and fractured into madness.
I felt the shatter. But I was powerless to stop it.
Shattered features a mixture of nonfiction and creative nonfiction stories about Hayes' real-life experiences with a traumatic brain injury that caused retrograde amnesia, as well as the events prior to and following the event. However–is the internal shatter she experienced really due to the amnesia, or due to something else? That is what Shattered aims to reveal.
The trade paperback edition of Shattered is 436 pages.
