At seventeen, Sasha is a little lost and a lot lonely. He craves friendship and love, but although he’s outwardly confident, his self-destructive tendencies cause problems, and he pushes people away. Making sculptures out of the broken glass he collects is the only thing that brings him any peace, but it's not enough, and every day he feels himself dying a little more inside. Until he meets Thomas.

Thomas is shy but sure of himself in a way Sasha can't understand. He makes it his mission to prove to Sasha that he is worthy of love and doesn't give up even when Sasha hurts him. Little by little Sasha begins to trust Thomas. And when Sasha is forced to confront his past, he realizes accepting the love Thomas gives him is the only way to push back the darkness.

    This is Not a Love Story pretty much earned Suki Fleet her spot on my auto-buy authors list. Her writing is gorgeous and that book is one of my shelf's most travelled.The Glass House was cute. It definitely had its share of heart-string pulling moments, like Sasha's situation with his mother. It wasn't as bleak as Foxes or This is Not a Love Story. I really loved Thomas and his quirky, mad grandmother.I will say that I felt this book had slightly less plot than Suki's other works. The whole emphasis was pretty much the evolving romance and the hurt/comfort trope (which, to be fair, no one pulls off as well as Suki does). I did find myself wanting a bit more from the story and more pace.Still enjoyable and the sheer quality of Suki's prose makes her books worth it every time.

    This is my second Suki Fleet read...it is time for a Suki Fleet bookshelf methinks, she will also be going onto my brilliant writing shelf (and she's British, yay!!)Yes, The Glass House is angsty, it's intense, it's so emotional and beautifully written...it is also a spot on depiction of how [I imagine] an abused teen would feel, emotionally and physically, after coming face to face again with his abuser (who happens to be his pathetic mother's boyfriend)...like he'd been kicked in the face and had his heart ripped out.I was SO angry for Sasha, for the life he'd had thanks to his mother. The fact that the only people he could rely on were his sister Corinne and Thomas, a boy who had noticed and finally made friends with Sasha at school. Sasha had a reputation unsurprisingly as a difficult teen, and wouldn't let anyone get close to him until Thomas...and they bonded over a love of Art, Sasha loved working with glass and Thomas (who had his own problems) loved working with old vinyl records.This was a beautiful love story, a coming out of sorts....Sasha coming out of his broken shell (his Glass House) thanks to Thomas, and it definitely deserves 5 stars. I can only hope we get an update on the two of them down the line, I feel certain working together in Glass Street in London is in their future.
