All Just Glass by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes - OPTIONAL

Atwater-Rhodes, Amelia All Just Glass, 246 pgs. Delacorte Press, 2011.  $15.99. Language- PG-13 ( 14 swears), Sexual Content G; Violence PG-13; Sara Vida has lived her life by the stirct rules of the Vida witches. But that was a life time ago. Now she is living a very different life. Just a few days ago she awoke, but its felt like its been ages.  Now Sara is under attack. Her sister Adia is the witch put in charge of the hunt to kill the beast that has now taken over her sister's body.  It's ok, at least that's what she's convinced herself, the beast has just taken the form of her sister and her sister is no longer there. But this actually quite the opposite, Sara hopes she can convince her sister that this new beast is still her.  It just might cost her her life. Amelia has combined witches and vampires in a fasinating new way.  I loved how there were so many different points of veiws for telling the story. However, the book seemed way to long to contain the short story.  I felt that this book was longwinded and gave to many boring detailes and because the author did not start off the story with the background infromation we needed, there was too much time spent in flashbacks and tellings of the past.  MS - OPTIONAL Student Reviewer: KU
