G/A Williams, Carol Lynch. Glimpse. Simon & Schuster, 2010. 496p. 9781416997306. 16.99

When Hope walks in on her older sister Lizzie with her finger on the trigger of a shotgun, everything in her life starts to unravel. Lizzie is sent off to the hospital for being suicidal and Hope has to live alone with her selfish prostitute mother. Told in free verse from Hope’s perspective, the reader will learn what has lead Lizzie to suicide and how the sisters formed such a tight bond throughout a tough childhood. This quick read is a bit depressing, but fans of Ellen Hopkins and Elizabeth Scott will love it. Loren Spector, LAPL, Felipe de Neve
