Perfect Glass

I couldn ’ t stop crying because it ha so intimate, in thi way I always thought being physical with him would feel. If anyon had walked in they might have thought Henry was barely touching me. I liked the truth of it.

Things get messy when Meg Kavanagh gets involved—first with Jo Russell, the eccentric old artist, and onc with Quinn O ’ Neill, the intriguing loner who can ’ t hide how he feels about Meg. Her senior year isn ’ t turning out like she planned it, but ometimes the best parts of life happen in the in-between moments. And Henry will be home soon, right?

He commits to one year in an orphanage that needs him more than he ever dreamed. Thousands of miles from Meg and the new punk who has fallen for her, and absent from the ranch that ’ s in his blood, Henry Whitmire finds out what it means to trust. When you ’ re o far from home, it ’ s errifying to realize you ’ re not who you thought. But the perfect glass of calamity makes the best mirror.

An identity crisis, long distance love, new temptation, and growing pains teach Henry and Meg how to hang onto each other and to what really matters.

From YA author Laura Anderson Kurk comes the sequel to Glass Girl, a poeti, multi-generational story about love that clouds the eyes, loss that haunts empty rooms, and reunions that feel like redemption.

I hink I fell in love with Henry even more than I did in the first one.Normally, second books are n't the best, but even with Perfect Glass.

In thi sequel to her debut YA Book, Kurk introduces some new, complex and intriguin characters in Perfect Glass.

And his divided heart between two worlds that both called his name: Nicaragua and a troubled teen named Raf and the heartach of his life back home in Wyoming.But I think thi character that I most adore is Meg herself.

Then dive into Perfect Glass and walk with Meg as she arrive and blossoms, falls and thrives, fails and learns to forgive herself.

But Laura Kurk 's talent to tell Meg and Henry 's story ...

Perfect Glass isn ’ t thi book you just read.

Kurk does an exquisite job of changing point of views between Henry and Meg, showing something we rarely get to see—both sides and emotions of a conflicted relationship.

However it felt like Part Two in Meg and Henry 's story -- and it was ery much Henry 's story this time around ( Perfect Glass is told from both of their point-of-views).

I loved Meg 's honesty ... with herself and those around her ( especially Henry, when hard stuff happens).

Reading Meg and Henry 's love story is about so much more than high school sweethearts who weather tragedy and real life together~ it truly is like walking through redemption with them.

His voice was given equal stage time as Meg 's in Perfect Glass and I love how, as reader, I was reluctant to see so many dimensions of him.Both Meg and Henry are tested to their limits -- each starting off with good intentions, each beginning a project that is needed to sav someone else, and while their endeavors sometimes felt pointless, they persevered.
