Ash Perrault can explain why she's so upset: her dad's fiancé is moving into their house, her best friend Mouse is hiding a secret from her, she has detention on the school dance committee, and her relationship with her boyfriend, Seth, is confusing and often hurtful. But Ash can't explain why the glass around her keeps breaking without her touching it. Her power to break glass is not only eerie, it's dangerous. Can she find a way to control it?

"With a paranormal twist, this novel by the wonderful Alyxandra Harvey-Fitzhenry is quirky, fun and [a] great read at its best...A take of growing up and dealing with life's problems that had me engaged in the book from start to finish....Harvey-Fitzhenry manages to tackle a few issues that teens struggle through in such a short book. The way she describes the glasses breaking was very pretty at times and had me mesmerized."
BCTLA's The Bookmark - October 1, 2009
"There is much to appreciate in this very timely treatment of a modern situation characterized by the remarriage of a single parent and the effects on the children involved. As well as presenting language with which young people can readily identify, (i.e. texting, e-mailing, on-line chatting), the story offers very genuine and engaging insight into the psyche of a teenage girl and her interpersonal relationships."
