Girl Through Glass

Girl Through Glass Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Girl Through Glass by Sari Wilson Book Summary:

An enthralling literary debut that tells the story of a young girl’s coming of age in the cutthroat world of New York City ballet—a story of obsession and the quest for perfection, trust and betrayal, beauty and lost innocence. In the roiling summer of 1977, eleven-year-old Mira is an aspiring ballerina in the romantic, highly competitive world of New York City ballet. Enduring the mess of her parent’s divorce, she finds escape in dance—the rigorous hours of practice, the exquisite beauty, the precision of movement, the obsessive perfectionism. Ballet offers her control, power, and the promise of glory. It also introduces her to forty-seven-year-old Maurice DuPont, a reclusive, charismatic balletomane who becomes her mentor. Over the course of three years, Mira is accepted into the prestigious School of American Ballet run by the legendary George Balanchine, and eventually becomes one of “Mr. B’s girls”—a dancer of rare talent chosen for greatness. As she ascends higher in the ballet world, her relationship with Maurice intensifies, touching dark places within herself and sparking unexpected desires that will upend both their lives. In the present day, Kate, a professor of dance at a Midwestern college, embarks on a risky affair with a student that threatens to obliterate her career and capsizes the new life she has painstakingly created for her reinvented self. When she receives a letter from a man she’s long thought dead, Kate is hurled back into the dramas of a past she thought she had left behind. Told in interweaving narratives that move between past and present, Girl Through Glass illuminates the costs of ambition, secrets, and the desire for beauty, and reveals how the sacrifices we make for an ideal can destroy—or save—us.

Girl of Glass

Girl of Glass by Megan O'Russell Book Summary:

Two worlds. One glass wall. No turning back. The human race has been divided. The chosen few live in the safety of the domes, watching through their glass walls as those left on the outside suffer and die. But desperation has brought invention. New drugs have the ability to alter humans, giving them the strength to roam the poisoned night unafraid—but survival comes at a terrible price. Seventeen-year-old Nola Kent has spent her life in the domes, training to protect her little piece of the world within the glass. The mission of the domes is to preserve the human race, not to help the sick and starving. When the fate of an outsider child falls into her hands, Nola dares to venture beyond the security of her home, diving into a world of darkness and vampires. Life within the glass didn’t prepare her for the realities of suffering or the depth of forbidden love. When blood washes over the domes, Nola must choose between her home and her heart. Girl of Glass is an action-packed dystopian tale. If you like romance, strong heroines, and a touch of paranormal danger, then you’ll love joining Megan O’Russell’s 90,000+ satisfied readers. Download Girl of Glass. The apocalypse awaits. Praise for Girl of Glass “Honestly, I have stayed up far too late reading this - and I have no regrets.” – Amazon Review “In this thrilling novel, Russell explores an apocalyptic world through the eyes of a girl who must find a way to bridge the gap between humans and monsters, all the while moving on from an uncertain life that knows nothing of sorrow.” – Readers Favorite “A wild ride with strong emotions, real problems & hard choice solutions. Makes the pages fly. Creates a need to read the entire series to see what happens.” – Amazon Review “I loved this book. It kept me on the edge of my seat as I was reading. Looking forward to reading the next one.” – Amazon Review “I don’t want to give too much away, so all I will say is this book is probably close to the perfect dystopian YA novel.” – Amazon Review Author Interview What inspired you to write Girl of Glass? I wanted to write a story that combines a mid-apocalyptic world with the excitement of the paranormal—weaving vampires, werewolves, and a touch of zombie action into a story about a girl living in privilege at the end of civilization. What makes Girl of Glass a different kind of dystopian tale? Most dystopian books are written from the point of view of the downtrodden. You’re seeing everything through the eyes of the people desperately trying to survive from day to day. Nola is one of the privileged few chosen to survive the apocalypse. Seeing the end of the world from the point of view of the chosen 1% helps to explore the question of what our obligation is to help those who suffer. Why would readers enjoy Girl of Glass? With a mix of romance, danger, vampires, and survival against terrible odds, Girl of Glass offers readers a unique story that will keep them up late, desperate to find out what comes next.

Girl in Glass

Girl Through Glass Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Girl in Glass by Deanna Fei Book Summary:

Deanna Fei was just five-and-a-half months pregnant when she inexplicably went into labor. Minutes later, she met her tiny baby who clung to life support inside a glass box. Fei was forced to confront terrifying questions: How to be the mother of a child she could lose at any moment. Whether her daughter would survive another day--and whether she should. But as she watched her daughter fight for her life, Fei discovered the power of the mother-child bond at its most elemental. A year after she brought her daughter home from the hospital, the CEO of AOL--her husband's employer--blamed the beautiful, miraculously healthy little girl for a cut in employee benefits and attached a price tag to her life, using a phrase, "distressed babies," that set off a national firestorm. Girl in Glass is the riveting story of one child's harrowing journey and a powerful distillation of parenthood. With incandescent prose and an unflinching eye, Fei explores the value of a human life: from the spreadsheets wielded by cost-cutting executives to the insidious notions of risk surrounding modern pregnancy; from the wondrous history of medical innovation in the care of premature infants to contemporary analyses of what their lives are worth; and finally, to the depths of her own struggle to make sense of her daughter's arrival in the world. Above all, Girl in Glass is a luminous testament to how love takes hold when a birth defies our fundamental beliefs about how life is supposed to begin.
