    " This book is absolutely beautiful. Told from the point of view of a sixteen year old girl from Tucson who is afraid of everything. In the course of a couple months, she learns things that take some a whole lifetime to learn. Life and death, fear and confidence, anger and love, pain and joy, all come hand in hand in this amazing book. "

    " Loved this book. The writing was beautiful, and so descriptive that it captured my attention completely and made me feel as if I was right there in the Mexican culture with all the characters, seeing, tasting, smelling and experiencing everything described. A very heartwarming story about finding your strength within, real love, family and forgiveness. "

    " I'm reading this with my eleven year old daughter and we are both loving it! Its heart wrenching and heart warming. Very well written book. So glad my girlfriend gave it to me. I highly recommend this book to everyone so far. The characters are great. The main character Sophie has so many phobias it's hilarious how she describes them. And her courage in dealing with them is inspiring. The writing is so good and the characters so real I feel like I'm part of the story and I forget I'm actually reading a book! It's very hard to put down! "

    " Red Glass is a multi-cultural, coming of age, young adult story that manages to unite the Bosnian war, the Guatemalan rebellion, USA/Mexican border disputes, illegal immigration, and the importance of expressing one's true individuality into one 300 page, easy-read novel. "
