Stacey has kept me entertained once again. I'm really picky about YA books, so I don't read too many of them. But I love this series, and I'll keep reading the books. There was a little more sexual content than I've seen in other young adult books I've read, but the fact is that this is what really goes on with teenagers, and the author really does a good job in portraying the thoughts and feelings of young people in this age group. Another winner!

didn't think this series could get any better but i was totaly wrong glimmer is awesome. i love living in zellie's world! the story line sucked me in within the first few pages everything i thought about this book before i read it did not do it justice where stacey took this story was a step up from the first book and can't wait to read the 3rd book to find out what happens in zellie's story and i thought i could not love ben more but after reading glimmer i totaly do he is fast becoming my favorite in the book after zellie! this series is a must for any YA fan =)

One of the most AMAZING book series I have EVER read!! Totally a must read! It is probably not for teens under 14 or 15, but I am sure if you read it, you will not be able to put it down! Finished in one day! Ahhhhh!! I must get the next!

I just need to say that I've never been interested in reading books on my computer before Stacey Wallace Benefiel. I borrowed Glimpse from a friend and loved it so much that when Glimmer came out I needed to read it regardless of it's format, and I'm glad I did. I love books that make me stay up passed my bedtime and this was most definitely one of them. Zellie is seriously one of my favorite characters, like ever. The language used in this book is perfect, I can really imagine the teenage conversations. "Please let my gaydar be on the fritz", I think I've said that or a variation of that phrase hundreds of times. Another thing I like about this series are the covers. I love love love the artwork. So now I'm waiting for the next installment... Really excited. Oh, another thing, if you haven't read Day of Sacrifice you should probably get on that. I think Stacey Wallace Benefiel is a fantastic writer and if you agree you should read her other stuff too. :)

Yeah, so I pretty much devoured this in a matter of hours. I hardly ever read books in a few hours anymore. Although, I will allow for the fact that it is a weekend, ergo lots more time to actually read, ergo less distractions, but that’s not to discount just how much I enjoyed Glimmer in full flex. So this time around, we get a little more action from Zellie and Avery on the virginity front (wink wink) and a lot more action on The Society front, mostly in the form of Ben and his Lookout, Frank’s involvement trying to strengthen Zellie’s power and figure out what Ben’s are all about. And then there’s this guy who’s plotting to kill them both, but, like in Glow, despite the potential of the situation to devolve into catastrophic dark places (like, oh, say, KILLING ZELLIE AND BEN), we all know that never happens. (Well, not really.) Anyway, it’s all pure fluffy goodness all over again. Writing’s not spectacular, but the story’s far more readable than it has any rights to be. I still can’t believe I actually enjoy these books. But they’re good fun. What’s the point in denying that? Guilty pleasure, for sure. Plus, I’m a sucker for homosexual/bisexual men and a girl who’s not afraid to lose her virginity at 16. I’m actually excited about where Glow will go. :] P.S. I stayed up until like 3 o’clock reading this. That’s always a good sign.

Love the series so far but it is definitely not for young teens. I would even hesitate to allow an older teen read it. Maybe over 18 for sexual content.
