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.
BREAKING GLASS was so much more than I had expected. It is a story of love, loss, friendship, and determination and all of these come together to create a great story. It was definitely one of the better YA thrillers I have read.
Jeremy Glass, star of the track team and lover of history, ends up in the hospital injured and disoriented, the last thing he remembers was his best friend, Ryan, pushing his girlfriend-and Ryan’s crush-down and taking a massive fall. But Susannah is missing and Ryan is insisting that we was never in that area, although Jeremy saw him.
Surprisingly, this novel has so many elements in play and it still manages to work perfectly. There’s some occult, some murder mystery, some family issues, first love, and so much more. It is especially rewarding when you find out how they tie together in the end.
There were some lulls in the pacing of BREAKING GLASS, but trying to solve the overall mystery really keeps you involved in the story. It was completely unpredictable and I remember reading and being genuinely surprised at all the twists and turns.
I definitely recommended this to anyone who loves a good mystery, all the other stuff is just an amazing bonus that you will also be sure to enjoy.
