9780062306579: Kiss of Broken Glass

Madeleine Kuderick’s gripping debut is a darkly beautiful and lyrical novel in verse, perfect for fans of Sonya Sones and Laurie Halse Anderson. Kiss of Broken Glass pulses with emotion and lingers long after the last page.

In the next seventy-two hours, Kenna may lose everything—her friends, her freedom, and maybe even herself. One kiss of the blade was all it took to get her sent to the psych ward for seventy-two hours. There she will face her addiction to cutting, though the outcome is far from certain.

When fifteen-year-old Kenna is found cutting herself in the school bathroom, she is sent to a facility for mandatory psychiatric watch. There, Kenna meets other kids like her—her roommate, Donya, who’s there for her fifth time; the birdlike Skylar; and Jag, a boy cute enough to make her forget her problems . . . for a moment.

From the Author:

This book is very close to my heart and I hope it starts conversations, encourages empathy, and helps some readers feel less alone. As a debut author, I am honored by some of the early reviews. Here's what people are saying:

"Readers will devour this . . ." - Kirkus Reviews

"Vivid and descriptive . . . a moving story about a serious issue." - School Library Journal

"Kuderick's keen diction and free-verse technique shine." - Kirkus Reviews

"A fresh, honest, and ultimately hopeful story." - Horn Book

From the Inside Flap:

My name is Kenna.
No one ever told me the truth about cutting.
How scars multiply like freaking rabbits.
How cutting turns you into a pathological liar.
How getting caught lands you in a psych ward
with no way out for 72 hours.

But that's exactly what happens.
To me anyway.

And I bet you wonder how anyone could ever change -
in just three days, in a place like this
where everybody's broken.

Trust me.
I wonder that myself.

An incandescent novel that pulses with emotion and lingers long after the last page, Kiss of Broken Glass is unforgettable.
