15 books down, 338 days to go!
Glimpse by Carol Lynch Williams looks like a long book, but it's written in free-verse poetry, so it took me less than four hours to read...hey, I had to do homework in between every few pages! Anyway, Hope has an okay life, money to use most of the time, a best friend, a crush...but then she walks in on her older sister holding a gun to her head. So why is her sister now suicidal? And why doesn't her mother want her to mention how they get money? This book is thrilling, easy to read, and full of questions about morals and family. So, yeah, it was pretty good.
