Book Review #15: Glass Girl

When Meg Kavanagh finds herself in the unthinkable role of grieving sister, she discovers some harsh truths—parents aren’t perfect, life’s not always sweet, and the dead don’t write back. Worried she might have caused Wyatt’s death, Meg folds her heart into a box. Her famous mom grieves by slowly disappearing, and her dad copes by moving them to a small town in Wyoming.
What she finds in Wyoming blindsides her.
His name is Henry, and he’s a rancher’s son who pulls Meg into his larger-than-life world and shows her that being sensitive is not an excuse to sit this one out. Meg wants to be brave like Henry because the best things in life—like falling in love and finding mercy—require uncommon courage. And Henry has a secret that changes everything.
 Second book that I review regarding Playlist Fiction. The first one was It's Complicated by Laura L. Smith, now moving on to Glass Girl by Laura Anderson Kurk. If the blurb of the book sounded interesting to you, make sure to check it out, because it is gorgeously written. 5/5 stars

From the very beginning of the book I was pulled into the story. You're kept in the dark for quite a while with regards to what exactly the secret is that Meg is carrying along with her. You know the outline and what it caused to her family, but not the exact details and that's what I loved.

You go through the whole rollecoaster that Meg is going through, with regards to her parents, settling in a new town and of course the great loss and grief that is an ungoing turbulance in her life.

Every emotion in the book feels so real, Laura definately got me crying a couple of times throughout the book, because it was so easy to feel what Meg was feeling even though (luckily) I've never experienced anything like she is going through.

Then there is also Henry, who is just to lovable to be good (you would think) and Thanet, who is definatel a very, very inspiring character. It's just impossible not to love and feel for him at the exact same time.

  6. I'm with you, Arlette. This is an incredibly stunning story, by a gifted author. Can't wait for the release of Perfect Glass!

  7. The story sound a bit cliché: girl moving to a new town, meeting a boy, etc. But since you love it so much, it might be worth the read :) Nice review!

    1. It does definately have some elements that can feel somewhat cliche like, but the story is so much stronger actually than that
