The Life of Glass

The Life of Glass by Jillian Cantor (NY: HarperTeen, 2010).

CIP Summary: "Through her freshman year of high school, fourteen-year-old Melissa struggles to hold on to memories of her deceased father, to cope with her mother's return to dating, to get along with her sister, and to sort out her feelings about her best friend, Ryan."

Good teen read. Cantor uses the Arizona setting evocatively in this coming-of-age story. Grades 9 & up. Sexual situations, language.
