Perfect Glass

Perfect Glass
By Laura Anderson Kurk
About the book:
I couldn’t stop crying because it was so intimate, in that way I always thought being physical with him would feel. If someone had walked in they might have thought Henry was barely touching me. I knew the truth of it–
Things get messy when Meg Kavanagh gets involved—first with Jo Russell, the eccentric old artist, and then 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, but sometimes the best parts of life happen in the in-between moments.
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 so far from home, it’s terrifying to realize you’re not who you thought.
But the perfect glass of calamity makes the best mirror.

My thoughts:
After reading "Perfect Glass" I feel much the same as I did after I read the first book "Glass Girl." Wow, how does she do it?

Meg is the kind of friend you want to have. She's deep and thoughtful and not hung up on trivial things. Henry is full of sweetness and wears his emotions on his sleeve.

Laura Anderson Kurk has a way of drawing you into your world like you are part of it. This series is a must read!

I loved your review because I could echo your thoughts! Laura Anderson Kurk catapulted to my favorite authors list after I read Glass Girl (well, technically, after I read the first page), and I just loved Perfect Glass. Exquisite.
