On the night seventeen-year-old Jeremy Glass winds up in the hospital with a broken leg and a blood alcohol level well above the legal limit, his secret crush, Susannah, disappears. When he begins receiving messages from her from beyond the grave, he's not sure whether they're real or if he's losing his grip on reality. Clue by clue, he gets closer to unraveling the mystery, and soon realizes he must discover the truth or become the next victim himself.
Breaking Glass is a well written and well crafted story and I can recommend the read.
Jeremy Glass is a very likable character that I easily connected with. He definitely receives his fare share of obstacles and I could not help but cheer and worry for him at the same time. We get a good mix of what he has to deal with in his personal life and his social life with his best friend Ryan and Ryan's girlfriend Susannah.
The story has an interesting structure where we get to keep up on the current events with the very important back story weaved in, in a "then and now" type alternating scenes.
What is fun about this read is that it is not only a mystery for the protagonist, but we are left in the dark trying to discover the twists and turns along with him. The ending was not what I was expecting, which is a good thing, and Susannah does takes a turn that I would've liked to have seen gone the other way, but over all it is a great story and I enjoyed reading it.
