Glass by Ellen Hopkins is an educational book about teens and the use of drugs. This book teaches teens about how life can be altered by drugs. Kristina the teenage girl in the book does drugs but has many consequences in return. She steals, lies and doesn't take care of her young son, because drugs are more important. This book can teach many things to teenage girls and boys about the dangers (bad decisions), consequences and much more. It teaches teens that substances are easy to abuse but even harder to quit.
I really liked this book, I usually like things I can relate to but this was different. I don't use or would ever use Crystal Meth, or even thing about dealing it for a high-powered mafia. Not taking care or her child crosses many lines in my book, especially the fact that she loses respect, people and much more.
On a scale from 1-10 I'd give this book an 8. I would recommend it to anyone who can relate to drugs, having your child taken away or just any teen who should learn the importance of not giving away their innocence because it can ruin your whole life. I would pay for this book, and if it got turned into a movie I would pay to see it. I generally, really like this book and think it's motivational in many ways.
