    One thought on “Breaking Glass

    1. Lisa on said:

      Well, I wrote this book, so obviously, I'm rather fond of it. I think you will enjoy it if you love a good mystery, being a little spooked, a fair helping of romance and a glimpse inside of a basically good, but rather mixed-up seventeen year old boy. It's funny how when you create a character they seem to live in your mind forever. That's Jeremy Glass for you---he's pretty real to me. And I'm sure, even with his flaws, he'd be pretty fun to hang out with.

      BREAKING GLASS is the story of a teenager whose secret crush disappears one night, a night of which he has only shattered memories. He must figure out what happened to her, especially once she starts contacting him to solve her murder. This story will haunt you in more ways than one. BREAKING GLASS is such an intense, edgy, sad, creepy, amazing, and un-put-downable read! We are delighted to have it at Spencer Hill.

      I was lucky enough to get to read this book early :) One of the best books I've had the pleasure of reading. Kept me guessing up to the end, had an amazing cast of characters and a story that I've continued thinking about long after finishing the book. Excellent read!

      Lisa is one of the coolest people ever. I can't wait to read this.

      So, I have to send out a huge amount of thanks to Kate Kaynak of Spencer Hill Press for sending me an actual manuscript (that's right, paper pages, unbound, and clipped together which came in a big envelope to my house)! I was very surprised when it arrived. I knew Lisa had requested for me to get an early copy, but I had no idea it would be like that! I am honored Kate and Lisa trusted me enough to know I would not share it with the world (at least not by copying it, but certainly by reviewing [...]

      (This review will be up on my blog The (Mis)Adventures of a Twenty-Something Year Old Girl in September).If you've been following my blog/reviews, you will know that I love anything to do with beyond the grave! Ghosts are a sure fire way to make me pick up a book and read it instantly! Luckily, this book was a really interesting read and helped me keep my faith in those type of books.The title is definitely an interesting one. It made me thing of a type of mystery book, which this is somewhat. A [...]

      Have you ever finished reading a book and then dreaded reviewing it because the story was so awesomely complex you fear your words of opinion aren’t going to do it justice?Well, Breaking Glass is a little like that for me. It’s the kind of book that you should try and put enough time aside to read in one sitting. Because this story is so interwoven with intricacies and details, and clues, and hints, and behaviour the reader will want to interpret—which means there is a LOT going on—that [...]

      Reasonable Jeremy never yells. Reasonable Jeremy is always in control. Reasonable Jeremy is happy in his role as human doormat and Enabler-in-Chief.If I were to rate this book solely on whether or not I liked the characters in it, I'd give it around 2 stars. If you're looking for a character-driven story with a hero that makes you wish more than anything that he could have his happy ending, look elsewhere. The fairly vicious and self-important attitude that many of the main characters have is ha [...]

      I received Breaking Glass by Lisa Amowitz from Spencer Hill Press, for review and this is my honest review.Holy moly, Breaking Glass was a crazy roller coaster ride and I loved every second of it! Jeremey Glass seems like an average guy but throughout the story we find out that he is definitely not. We watch him struggle with the death of his mother, and the lose of his leg as well as the lose of “the love of his life” the struggle was life threatening but well worth reading. This story was [...]

      This review and others are posted at Read, Rinse, Repeat.Jeremy Glass has a lot on his plate. His mother committed suicide when he was young. He's been in love with Susannah since they were children, but when they became teenagers, his best friend, Ryan, got the girl. Jeremy attempts to numb himself with alcohol, and one night, he makes an ill-fated decision to drive drunk, leading to an accident that causes him to lose his leg. That same night, Ryan and Susannah fight, and Susannah disappears. [...]

      I won my copy of Breaking Glass by Lisa Amowitz through GoodReads FirstReads, and I loved it! It's about a teen named Jeremy Glass, his best friend Ryan, and Jeremy's crush Susannah who happens to be Ryan's girlfriend, but Jeremy is basically Ryan's doormat and would never attempt to do anything that might spoil his friendship with the town "Golden Boy", even if it means covering for Ryan when he cheats on Susannah. Then once Susannah catches Ryan cheating she runs off into the woods followed by [...]

      "Oh what a tangled web we weaves, when first we practice to deceive."I think that someone should have told the characters in this book the meaning of this phrase! WOW! By the end of the book, when all the secrets have been laid out on the table, just wow.This is one of those books that is so good that I know there's no way that my review is going to come close to doing it justice. I definitely found myself saying "Just one more chapter" and before I knew it, the clock read midnight and I figured [...]

      One of the best things about being at BEA was meeting people, one of the best people I met was Lisa Amowitz, and I was nervous starting out Breaking Glass for fear I wouldn't like it, but I shouldn't have worried, because I loved, adored, was amazed by Breaking Glass.From the first page I was hooked, Lisa Amowitz has a writing style that made me feel sad I had social engagements because all I wanted to do was sit down and read this book from start to end, the writing style is precise, it isn't b [...]

      I liked this dark and twisty book and connected with Jeremy. He was a complicated character with a lot of problems, and only found more as the book went along. It was very realistic when dealing with the medical aspects though. He lost a leg and had a long battle to healing and recovery, and none of it was skimmed over.Jeremy is such a joker on the outside, but underneath, he is dealing with a lot. He has issues with water, ptsd, drinking, and then he, the track star, lost his leg.There are seve [...]

      _________________________________More reviews at Readers in Wonderland_________________________________ BREAKING GLASS was so much more than I had expected. It is a story of love, loss, friendship, and determination and all of these come together to create a great story. It was definitely one of the better YA thrillers I have read. Jeremy Glass, star of the track team and lover of history, ends up in the hospital injured and disoriented, the last thing he remembers was his best friend, Ryan, pus [...]

    16. Lena Goldfinch on said:

      Amazing! BREAKING GLASS is a gripping, emotionally-raw story, which unfolds with the force of Lisa Amowitz's unflinching storytelling. The themes here are darker than what I normally read, to be honest, but I really enjoyed it. At times reality-bending, BREAKING GLASS is also heartbreakingly real. This gritty YA mystery has some really creepy supernatural elements and explores some disturbing & mature issues. This is not a "comfortable" book or a "sweet" book, but it's amazing. I found the p [...]

      I couldn't wait to read this book. I mean it's written by the cover artist of my own book. But in the back of my mind? What if I don't like it? Dun dun dun. Luckily, I didn't. I LOVED IT. I devoured it. My kids were not happy that I couldn't stop reading. But I couldn't. I had to know what was going to happen. The writing was great, the main character, Jeremy, was so real I could hug him. He was flawed (majorly) but absolutely lovable anyway (how does she do that so well?). And the mystery aspec [...]

      It's been soooo long since I've read anything paranormal and this book was a perfect way for me to get back in to the genre. Lots of mystery and intrigue to keep me guessing, and lots of creepy happenings to keep me chewing my finger nails! I felt there were a couple of things that could've done with a bit more of an explanation and the epilogue could've been a little longer and more detailed, but other than that I really enjoyed reading Breaking Glass.

    19. Sherry Ficklin on said:

      Ha! I just realized I mixed up my book reviews. Sorry. Breaking Glass was a mature teen thriller that took my breath away. I don't want to spoil anything, but the endwow. Just wow. If you are a fan of dark YA books like Pretty Little Liars, this book is right up your alley!

    20. Chris Dunham on said:

      What an amazing story. I couldn't put it down, and this isn't my usual genre. Incredibly well done. I look forward to more from Ms. Amowitz.

      Jeremy Glass has had feelings for Susannah Durban since they were just kids but could never do anything about it since she was dating his best friend, Ryan. On the night Jeremy ended up at the hospital with a broken leg and high levels of alcohol streaming through his veins, is the same night Susannah goes missing. Weeks go by and no ones has heard from her, no one expect Jeremy. Is Susannah really contacting him from the other side? Or is Jeremy, like his mother, finally losing his mind. Throug [...]

      *Genre* Ghost Noir, Young Adult*Rating* 3.5-4*Thoughts* (Hopefully without any spoilers!)Breaking Glass was a surprise addition to my reading list for July. I thank Spencer Hill Press for sharing this book with me in lieu of an honest review. Breaking Glass is definitely a book that will keep you guessing right until the very end. Add into the fact that there was a paranormal aspect to the storyline and it wasn't a matter of if I was going to read the book, but when and how much I would like it. [...]

      Breaking Glass was one of my most anticipated reads of the summer, so when I received an ARC in the mail, there was quite a bit of might have been a little bit of jumping up and down (which led to my husband thinking I was crazy…oh well, you all understand me). After I calmed down, I immediately dove into the mystery that is Breaking Glass. Jeremy Glass has always had a crush on Susannah Durban but he’s never been able to tell her how he feels since she is dating his best friend, Ryan. On th [...]

      I loved this book! the character of Jeremy Glass is heartbreaking and made me want to climb into the story and stand up for him time and time again. He is such a broken and sweet boy who has no clue what he is getting into and no one to look up to.The Mystery: where is Susannah? is she really dead? is Jeremy going crazy just like his mother did? and if Susannah is dead who killed her? Jeremy is afried that time is running out for him to find her, because he just might be the next victim.Susannah [...]

      Wow is all I can say about this book. It was amazing and had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I had a hard time putting it down once I started and the lack of sleep really started to show hehehe. Jeremy is an exceptional student and star runner on his high school track team. He is in love with his best friend Ryan's girlfriend Susannah. Ryan cheats on Susannah all the time and Jeremy knows but hides it from her which kills him. When Susannah comes home early from an art school she was t [...]

    26. Andrew on said:

      On the surface, “Breaking Glass” appears that it is going to be a typical romance; a love story between two individuals PLUS the best friend / third wheel who is really right for the girl. And make that a YA romance since our protagonists are seniors in high school.Now, take that assumption and toss it out the window, because author Lisa Amowitz turns it on its ear. Everyone has secrets. The characters in “Breaking Glass” are no exception. BUT the depth of those secrets, and how they int [...]

    27. JulieGrider on said:

      Oh my stars. This was one awesome book. It read like a Stephen King novel for young adults. Not only was each page a page-turner, each page had me wondering where the author was taking me next. Her characters were extremely well-developed and not at all predictable. Though I'm usually good at figuring out which way a story will turn, Lisa Amowitz proved me wrong each time. The crap that Jeremy Glass has to endure could have been viewed as unrealistic if written by a lesser author, but Ms. Amowit [...]

    28. Lisa Dess on said:

      OMG what a remarkable, sit on the edge, eyes glued to the pages, heart thumping book. The twists and turns kept me guessing all the way up to the end and still I sit here saying to myself, "Wow". The characters are intense and so much emotion penetrates the pages through them. I want to say so much about this book but I fear I would say too much. With that being said, I will end this review saying. Well done Lisa Amowitz!

    29. Erica Alyson on said:

      This book was very well thought out and executed. The character of Jeremy Glass is so complex. He has issues and he is in love with the wrong girl. Susanna is also complex even from the beyond. The story was so intriguing. I couldn't figure out what was going to happen next. I really enjoyed this book.

    30. Yuki on said:

      Non-spoiler review: go, read it!Spoiler review:(view spoiler)[I really admire Lisa's Amowitz for her writing, for her ability to create the great hero and for her bravery-she dared to hurt him, to damage him and to make him weak and pathetic. It's quite rarity in ya novels. (hide spoiler)]5 stars. Hell, the first good book in DAYS.
