Review: Glimpse (Williams)

Title: Glimpse
Author: Williams
Genre: Fiction, Abuse, Survival
Pages: 496! (don't freak out...there are very few words on each page)
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars (for older readers)

Hope keeps having dreams about crying. Her father is dead, her mother clearly has issues, and her sister Liz has been institutionalized because she tried to kill herself. About the only good thing Hope has going for her is her name. Hope doesn't understand what has happened to her family but she is determined to figure out why.

This is a gripping story, and not terribly cheerful. But it packs a punch and will haunt you long after finishing the book. It is definitely for high school readers. Not published until 6/22/10.
