    One thought on “Broken Glass”

    1. As someone who doesn t read a lot of YA, this came as a pleasant change of pace up until the last 30 pages or so where everything went dark not that it wasn t foreshadowed, but I still found myself a appalled at the way Stirling chose to solve the problem the lead up created.A dusty, dirty, rusted out, broken down Australian country farming town A young man, Danny, with an uncomfortable past and a stagnant present, who is sheltered by his family, and barely tolerated by the town at large, at lea [...]

    2. very heartbreaking book from one horrible twist to another, the only thing that cud have saved it was a good, satisfying endinge ending was horrific

    6. I was taught by Adrian Stirling for three years of English classes out of six at high school, recently enough that I had to concentrate so as not to write Mr Stirling Over that time we had various conversations about the fact that I would maybe like to become a writer some day still waiting on that one In the meantime however Broken Glass appeared and so naturally I had to pick it up I m really glad I did I m not sure what I was expecting from the story but it definitely surprised me Definitely [...]
