From Goodreads:

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.

My Thoughts:

Breaking Glass was one of my most anticipated reads of the summer, so when I received an ARC in the mail, there was quite a bit of might have been a little bit of jumping up and down (which led to my husband thinking I was crazy…oh well, you all understand me).  After I calmed down, I immediately dove into the mystery that is Breaking Glass. 

Jeremy Glass has always had a crush on Susannah Durban but he’s never been able to tell her how he feels since she is dating his best friend, Ryan.  On the night that Jeremy gets drunk and is hit by a car, Susannah disappears.  No one has heard from Susannah since the night that she disappeared, no one except for Jeremy.  Susannah has been sending Jeremy messages and he’s the only one who can figure out if Susannah is really trying to contact him from the other side or if he’s going crazy. 

Lisa Amowitz wrote Jeremy so perfectly, due to his mom’s history and the fact that he is an alcoholic I was constantly going back and forth on whether or not he was actually being haunted by Susannah.  Marisa was a really great character, even though I wasn’t sure what to think of her at the beginning, I completely adored her by the end.   

Overall, Breaking Glass is a suspenseful and gripping mystery that will have you on the edge of your seat.  I have to say that this is one of the best mystery books that I have read, there were so many twists and turns that I never saw coming.  I went into this book with high expectations and I am happy to say that it did not disappoint, this book was fantastic and I look forward to reading more books by Lisa Amowitz.
