The Girl in the Glass

I read the http://www.amazon.com/Girl-Glass-Novel-Susan-Meissner/dp/0307730425/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1355851660&sr=1-1&keywords=the+girl+in+the+glass+susan+meissner, in exchange for review from Bloggingforbooks.com. The book was written by Susan Meissner and published by WaterBrook Press.

s. The book is about MEg, who wants to take a trip to Florence, based on a picture she seen at Grandma house. Her grandma dies and her father is left to take her instead, but he can not be found.

The book is a beautiful book. The imagery is amazing. Meg starts off reminiscing about her grandmother and her grandmother's home. " The red and cream hues, remembered from the paintings on my Italian grandmother's walls" (p. 1). From The Statue of David to the toast-colored stucco to zipping of vespas down the street (p. 1). The book takes place 18 years later after her Nonna dies.

I also love the letters, written in a fancy font, scattered throughout the book.
