From Barnes & NobleSascha Naimann is nobody's fool. At 17, she's wise beyond her years, an improbable mixture of naïveté and grit, innocence and skepticism, a young woman of considerable talents, just shy of maturity. Born in Moscow and now living in Berlin with her two younger siblings — all orphaned two years ago — Sascha is much better at gauging life's complexities than her mother ever was — a woman who, for all her other good qualities, was incapable of recognizing when it was time to show a man the door. When she finally did, the man in question returned and shot her.
Fiercely independent yet understandably wary, Sascha has no intention of moving on or letting go. Friends, school, the self-absorption and silliness of adolescence — none of these appeal to her. Her dreams now are fueled by vengeance and provide all the company she needs. Sascha's resolute voice, mordant humor, and rueful honesty guide the reader through her days, but her revenge is derailed by new acquaintances and unexpected events.
Swiftly paced and meticulously crafted, Broken Glass Park introduces an iconic contemporary heroine — a young woman who seizes life on her own terms, whose wisdom comes at great cost, and whose singular achievement is to hold tight to her faith. It's a story that is as unforgettable as they come.
