Shattering Glass by Gail Giles
Published March 1st 2002
Fat, clumsy Simon Glass is a loser who occupies the lowest rung on the high school social ladder. Rob, a transfer student with charisma to spare, immediately becomes the undisputed leader of the senior class. And he has plans for Simon.
Rob enlists the help of his crew—wealthy, intellectual Young, ladies’ man Bob, and sweet, athletic Coop—in a mission: Turn Simon from total freak to prom king.
But as Simon rises to the top of the social ranks, he shows a new confidence and a devious side that power-hungry Rob did not anticipate. And when Simon uncovers a dangerous secret, events darken. The result is disquieting, bone-chilling . . . and brutal.
I had never heard of this book before my best friend told me about it. She started reading and when she finished it, she told me I had to read it. So I ordered it and waited somewhat patiently for it to arrive in my mail box. I finally received it and I started it about 30 minutes after opening the package. 3 hours later I was finished with Shattering Glass and I couldn’t move.
To be honest, the first 200 pages were okay. I really liked the writing style but I didn’t like the characters and the plot was a little bit boring. But at the top of every chapter is little paragraphs from interviews. And those paragraphs keep me reading. It was really suspenseful.
And the last 40 pages is were it gets good. This book goes from 0 to 100 in very little time so you don’t have time to prepare for what you reading.
Overall, this book was so great and I can’t even put into words how I felt when I finished this book. This isn’t a book that you read, it’s a book you experience
