Perfect Glass by Laura Anderson Kurk (Birch House Press, 2015)

From young adult author Laura Anderson Kurk comes the sequel to Glass Girl, a lyrical, multi-generational story about love that teaches, loss that haunts, and reunions that feel like redemption.

“Gorgeous…profound look at the longing for place.” –Jennifer Murgia, author of Between These Lines and Forest of Whispers 

Things get messy when Meg Kavanagh gets involved–first with Jo Russell, the eccentric old artist, and then with Quinn O’Neill, the intriguing loner who can’t hide how he feels about Meg. Her senior year isn’t turning out like she planned, but sometimes the best parts of life happen in the in-between moments. He commits to one year in an orphanage that needs him more than he ever dreamed.

Thousands of miles from Meg and the new punk who has fallen for her, and absent from the ranch that’s in his blood, Henry Whitmire finds out what it means to trust. When you’re so far from home, it’s terrifying to realize you’re not who you thought.
