it was ok

I received an ARC of this book to read. What an interesting premise! Actually, the premise seemed even more interesting as pitched to me: that adults were turning into "glass" and kids were suddenly feeling an inexplicable urge to smash things... Part of this isn't actually true in the book and maybe the disappointment I feel with it stems from that. It just ended up feeling like nothing was satisfactory in this book--none of the intriguing premises really amounted to anything substantial or logical. The whole thing ended up hinging on some odd woo-woo explanation that just didn't work for me at all.

Feels like an AWESOME first draft...not a final book.
