The book Glass is an amazing book. It is one of those books you feel like you can’t put down. The book drags you into the story of Kristina’s life and her drug addictions. You would really enjoy this book if you are into realistic books. The story is about a girl named Kristina who has two different sides. One side of her is Kristina and the other side of her is Bree. Kristina is the good side, the side that wants to be a good mother and wants to make enough money to take care of her son, Hunter. Bree is the bad side, the side that wants to get high all the time to make herself feel better, the side that wants to just hangout with friends and smoke crystal meth no matter how much it costs. She is using the money she would spend on her own son for drugs. That’s how addicted the side of Bree is to drugs. Kristina is having a hard time deciding how she wants to live her life. Her mother had already taken her son Hunter from her because of her drug problems. Her mot!her had even kicked Kristina out of the house.
Kristina knows she wants to stay clean for her son and wants to change her life around, but the question is; will she change her life around? Or is she just too addicted to drugs to have the strength to? You’ll have to read it to find out! 🙂
