Solange Says:
Step into this world and forget about trying to predict what is going to happen. This book will blow you away. The writing is absolutely stunning, the story will sweep you off your feet and let you forget you’re reading, and the characters will settle into your heart and never, ever leave.

This is one of those books that will stun you for days. Five-plus stars, to be honest, which isn’t something I hand out lightly.[/box_light] [box_light]

I’ve been trying to think of one word to summarize this book, and I think I’m going to go with brave. The author doesn’t sugarcoat aspects of life that are all too sadly true, but also, the main character in my eyes is incredibly brave. The love he has for his son burns so fiercely it choked me up a few times, but at the same time there is a great underlying humor that seems born from survival.

I loved this book, and if you want to dive into something real and raw, I highly recommend this. (I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.) [/box_light] [box_light]

Solange Says:
Shattered Glass is the book with the most irritating, immature main character I’ve ever come across. He sincerely annoyed me so much I frequently wanted to put this book down during the first couple of pages. If I had to listen to him declare one more time that He Wasn’t Gay, I was gonna hit him over the head with a frying pan.

But… I didn’t put it down, and there are two reasons for this. One, I think he was intended to be like this by the author, and he did grow up (very little) during the story. And two—the main reason—is I loved, loved, LOVED Peter in his bunny slippers. Peter Rabbit, so deliciously broken, such a hard life, and still so adorable. He doesn’t take any shit from Austin (hell, yes), adores his completely cute little brother so much I wanted to squeal, and basically just made me want to sit him down and feed him comfort food.

If you don’t mind yelling at your Kindle while still wanting to desperately read on, this book is for you. Another reason I’m recommending this book: it doesn’t happen very often I yell WHAT THE FUCK!?! out loud. You’ll see what I mean when you get to the scene in question.[/box_light]
