“You either needed to change to fit in, or write yourself off as an outcast.” ~Behind Broken Glass Walls
Behind Broken Glass Walls by N.M. Aaroones: 5/5 Stars
You never know how strong you are until you are forced into a situation that tests every ounce of your strength. This is what one mother learns when she finds out that the person who committed a shooting at her daughter’s high school was indeed her daughter. Her feelings are a mix of every emotion, but what bothers her the most is that even though she knows that her daughter took the lives of many others, she can’t help but love her the same that she always did – maybe even more. It is this love for her daughter that curses her existence, and makes her question her loyalties. Learn what it means to love a child when everyone else sees her as a murderer, and experience what it feels like to love someone who you no longer understand.
What are the limits on your love?
This will be a quick spoiler free review! I got this book for review and I am so thankful for that! Too bad I’m just now getting to reviewing it, but life happens! Let’s get this started.
This book was very different from my normal reads it’s pretty diverse from what I usually read so I enjoyed that aspect about the book. I also liked how it was about such a serious and different topic. How many books do you see about school shootings? Exactly. So, that immediately drew me in. This book had a lot of grammar errors, but since it’s an ARC (Advanced Readers Copy) that was to be expected.
This book happens to deal with a girl in high school which made me feel more connected to the book because I am in high school as well and the way high school was described was pretty accurate. If you’re not popular or a jock then you get over looked and forgotten and I think that’s important this was talked about because it’s a problem that can be solved. Also, that high school is very sports minded, which at least for me, is true. I think It’s great to have a book about something so serious and kind of touchy. It needs to be spoken about and that’s one of the reasons this book is a five-star read to me.
This book also had such an amazing plot twist! I wasn’t expecting it so those are always great haha. I obviously can’t give it away since this is a spoiler free review, but definitely read this so you too can see how cool and great the plot twist is.
Overall I thought this was a very good book that kept me interested. It’s a very deep book due to the serious topic and how a mother has to deal with the pain of loving a murderer. I highly recommend this book because it was such a great and amazing read. I think this book deserves more hype because it was so good. Anyway, I know this is really short but I hope y’all enjoyed it anyway. Sorry, it took me so long to post this!
