ABOUT BREAKING GLASS:

On the night seventeen-year-old Jeremy Glass winds up in the hospital with a broken leg and a blood alcohol level well above the legal limit, his secret crush, Susannah, disappears. When he begins receiving messages from her from beyond the grave, he’s not sure whether they’re real or if he’s losing his grip on reality. Clue by clue, he gets closer to unraveling the mystery, and soon realizes he must discover the truth or become the next victim himself.

REVIEW

BREAKING GLASS is a gripping, emotionally-raw story, which unfolds with the force of Lisa Amowitz’s unflinching storytelling. The themes here are darker than what I normally read, to be honest, but I really enjoyed it. At times reality-bending, BREAKING GLASS is also heartbreakingly real.

This gritty YA mystery has some really creepy supernatural elements and explores some disturbing & mature issues. This is not a “comfortable” book or a “sweet” book, but it’s amazing. I found the pov character, Jeremy Glass, to be deeply flawed, but also sympathetic. I was routing for him–even yelling at him at times!–but always on his side. I kept flipping through the pages greedily, wanting to know what was going to happen next.

Rx FOR SUMMER READING

BREAKING GLASS would be a great (creepy) book for one of those summer thunderstorm days when you’re curled up in a cozy armchair (praying your house doesn’t get hit by lightning lol).
