    Meg is a girl with pieces of me and pieces of you encased in her

    Meg is a girl with pieces of me and pieces of you encased in her heart. Like all of us, she aches for a sense of belonging. Like all of us, she longs to be loved. Only it's harder for Meg than for most, because of the traumatic hand of cards she's been dealt.




    This beautiful, fragile, yet eloquent story takes Meg Cavanaugh to Wyoming, away from her home and everything she's known in Pittsburgh. As her family attempts to escape their pain and start over, Meg feels she might shatter, literally. But on her first day in a new place, she meets two boys who give her a new perspective of herself - she's less fragile than she thinks.




    I could feel the protaganist's, Meg's heart skip a beat for Henry and ache for her mom and miss Wyatt like no one has ever missed anyone before or sense.
    Thank you, Laura Anderson Kurk for writing so lyrically and for sharing this stunning story of loss and gain.

    Every once in a while readers find a book that's perfect in ever

    Every once in a while readers find a book that's perfect in everything possible. The deepness of the story and the way it's beautifully narrated is what makes it outstanding; and Glass Girl is one of those books. This book presents the story of Meg, a girl facing the loss of her elder brother and how both her and her family is trying to survive this loss. What I loved about this book was the reality of the story, how even though this is Meg's story, we can find every piece that makes her story so touching. I must say I haven’t been able to find a likeable female character like Meg in a long time. I love how beautiful she is on the inside and outside, her strength and weaknesses and how she struggles with a lot and still manages to be herself. Secondary characters contribute to a good balance in the story and I must say Thanet stole my heart. The love story in this book is beautiful, Henry is one of those love interests that steals your heart. It was beautiful to see how they met and how their relationship developed. The beauty of this relationship goes beyond words with a sense of perfection, like an unforgettable love poem. The biggest credit I can give Mrs. Anderson Kurk is the message of love, faith, believing, succeed and let go without sounding preachy. I really think every person can connect with the emotions transpiring in the story. Glass girl, the story of a girl with a broken heart, who is afraid to lose everything during the process of grieving but will comprehend life's truth and find mercy in forever love.

    "Wyatt told me once that if tenderness were a disease, I'd be terminal." And that is the first line. What a haunting one, right?




    It's the perfect opening to this stunning novel, which I devoured within a day and a half. Laura Kurk's lovely writing voice and the depth of Meg herself drew me in until I could not read the story fast enough.




    Yet this is no light read. For a while now Meg's life has been one tragedy after another. I think we can all relate to the feeling that not another thing can go wrong. Her brother has died. Her mother has fallen into depression. Her father has decided to move them to Wyoming in hopes of making a fresh start. Thus, Glass Girl has all the makings of a deep novel about surviving suffering sure to break your heart and mend it all over again.




    I loved Meg. And I loved Henry, too.




    And I especially loved the two of them together, how they were able to make each other better. This is a very sweet, clean romance that is going on my favorites list.








    What I Didn't Like As Much








    There is some mention of alcohol and partying, but other than that and I think maybe one swear word, this book is a beautiful portrayal of a hurting heart pursuing healing.








    Why I Recommend This Book








    What I liked best about Glass Girl, though, wasn't the deeply real, relatable characters, the authentic dialogue, dazzling descriptions of Wyoming that made me want to visit, or even the romance. It was the fact that the story doesn't end. I don't just mean that I'm greatly looking forward to the sequel releasing the week of my birthday, either (although I very much am!).




    Meg isn't done growing yet. Henry has plans and dreams and ambitions to accomplish. Their story isn't over at the end of Glass Girl and I love that. I love that I feel as if I made a new friend in Meg and I haven't learned all she has to teach me. 




    I highly recommend this book to readers who love Young Adult fiction, characters who are so much more than words on a page, sweet romance...or just a beautiful glimpse into a true heart.
