In this powerful debut, Laura Anderson Kurk offers a rare glimpse into the soul of the often forgotten grieving sibling. Glass Girl is a lovely book that treats with compassion one of life's most trying times, lending honesty to the discussion about the impact of violence on families.
At turns funny, tragic, and hopeful, Glass Girl captures the reality that is Meg's life--the slow, messy heartbreak of grief balanced with the rush and energy of first love. Readers will recognize the gentle, believable journey that takes Meg from Pennsylvania to Wyoming, from loneliness to love, and from sorrow to hope.
The story of Meg and Henry will touch teens who are trying to do the right thing but still feel lost at times. Those who are learning that life is often a slow-moving dance that is exquisite and excruciating at once, but is, above all, beautiful.
