Book Review of Glass Girl (Playlist Fiction)

Firstly before I get to the point of this blog post I'd like to share with you my tumblr writing blog, since I update on that alot more often so It might be cool to see some of you catch up with me on that :) Thewordsiwrite
Anyway to the point! Today (like a few minutes ago actually) I finally finished the second book for playlist fiction, Glass girl by Laura Anderson Kurk! (See her website here) Instead of my normal overview of the plot I'm going to give you the one on her website since I think if I think about it too much I may cry again :) 
When Meg Kavanagh finds herself in the unthinkable role of grieving sister, she discovers some harsh truths—parents aren’t perfect, life’s not always sweet, and the dead don’t write back. Worried she might have caused Wyatt’s death, Meg folds her heart into a box. Her famous mom grieves by slowly disappearing, and her dad copes by moving them to a small town in Wyoming.What she finds in Wyoming blindsides her.His name is Henry, and he’s a rancher’s son who pulls Meg into his larger-than-life world and shows her that being sensitive is not an excuse to sit this one out. Meg wants to be brave like Henry because the best things in life—like falling in love and finding mercy—require uncommon courage. And Henry has a secret that changes everything.
Oh and here's the cover! which is so pretty!
So it took me absolutely ages to get through this book as apposed to other books that mostly I read really quick. The reason it took me so long is because it's one of those books that involuntarily pulls you in. Makes you feel like you're there with Meg or even are her at some points in it! and it made me want to cry at points so much that I felt like putting it in the freezer like Joey did with the shining in F.R.I.E.N.D.S but I didn't! I just... cried alot :P It shows the raw emotions of grief that I've never experienced first hand while at the same time falling in love with a small town cowboy who just blows you away! So seriously I'd recommend this book to everyone! As long as they're ready to cry abit if they get too into books like I do. Meg is easilly relateable to everyone and you really understand everything she's going through even if you have no idea what that kind of pain feels like. This book released on April 1st (As did it's complicated ) and the sequel 'Perfect glass' releases in June! Which by the way I'm so anxious to read that I really wish it was on the may releases for playlist!! For anyone who wants to check out more about Laura and her writing here's ways to catch up with her!
