Breaking Glass was an interesting book. I felt that it was somewhat dragged out and could have been better. it was a sort of murder(or maybe not!) mystery. It was full of conspiracies and that was cool. It goes through relationships between family, old and new friends, and love interests. The book overall was very good but was kind of a slow read.
The Diviners takes place in 1920's New York City with flapper Evie O'Neill, a young girl with a taste for excitement. She is living with her uncle as punishment for things that she did back in her hometown of Ohio.

I give this book a 4; it's a long read, but worth your time!
