Red Glass-- Laura Resau

This is not the type of book I usually read. Not a bit of fantasy in it. But my librarian told me I would love it, and my librarian has good taste, so I believed her.

It’s the story of a girl who thinks herself unattractive, paranoid, and delicate. Then her family takes in a little Mexican boy, and this delicate girl has to travel across Mexico to take him home, even though she desperately wants him to stay.

This book was interesting. Not in a good or bad way. As I said, it’s not what I usually read. There were parts of it I thought were very interesting, and others that made me yawn and say “move on!”

If you like stories about an awkward girl turning into a woman, and discovering what it really means to love, then you’ll like this book.

  1. Well, it LOOKS like a fantasy-filled-type-of-book. Oh well. Thanks for the review. :)

  2. I does. But there's not a bit of fantasy in it. Some wishful thinking, but no fantasy.

  3. I just read this book not long ago and liked it quite a bit. It's true that not all of it was EXCITING, and there was definitely no fantasy, but some parts were funny, and other sad. Maybe I just like those kinds of books. :-)
