El Glasse’s mother controls her life. What she does, who she dates, even what she’s allowed to say. El only has two ways of holding onto her freedom.

3.75 Stars. This was a really solid YA read. It was well written with plenty of drama and some excitement. I didn’t realize it would be so intense at times. It is definitely a YA book that adults can read too. While this is a YA book there are some trigger warnings I think I should mention but I’ll put them behind a spoiler. (view spoiler) ...more

I enjoyed this story so much more than I expected to. Seventeen-year-old Elyrra Glasse’s life is controlled nearly entirely by her bigoted, religious-fanatic mother. Her politician father is so absent he may as well not exist. With every passing day she realises that she will never be the person her mother wants her to be. She keeps her popular blog hidden and writes in her notebook in code. Watching Riley, her school mate and secret crush, gives her inspiration to be braver and more resistant t ...more

Finding out you’re a lesbian is never a simple journey. When your parents are powerful bigots, it’s almost impossible. El’s life is entirely lived under her mother’s eyes. Her mother decides what she wears, what she eats, what she likes and who she dates. For most of her seventeen years, El has gone along, feeling she had no choice. Then she fell in love with Riley, out lesbian and daughter of an ex-con. El documents her (unrequited as far she knows) love of Riley on her blog, discovering a whol ...more

This is pure lose-yourself-into-it drama; but like an extremely well-made movie, you remain riveted till the absolutely perfect end.

Do you want angst and drama? Then this is the book for you! I kept reading because I couldn't wait to know what happened with the two girls, but one of my main concerns is that the "evil character"is pure unadulterated evil, she's just evil. And sure, there's terrible people in the world... but even then, they aren't 100% evil, right? (Or maybe I'm delusional).

100% on board with young lesbians who ride motorbikes, though.

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

“You’re just going to have to trust me. I know where you are. If I wanted you caught, I’d just send someone to get you. But I want you safe. So eat. Sleep. Do your good deed. Then meet me. I’ll be waiting. You want to see the forests? So let’s ride.”

I’m highly recommending Love Under Glasse. I really really loved this book. I never wanted it to end. When I first read the synopsis I was a little worried that the book would start off with El running away and we wouldn’t get any context for why Ril

Where to start with this book? If I know I’m going to be reviewing a book I usually make notes as I go along. The only notes I made about this is ‘3% in and I am officially in love’.
An amazing book about how prejudice can affect a person and their journey of self love that reflected so many aspects of my life, it felt like the main character could have been me in another life.
With characters that will become scarily real and a series of well choreographed events that lead to a satisfying conclus
