First I have to say what a marvelous cover this book has. Wow--does it ever capture the experiences of the main character as she crosses into different segments of society. Beautiful artwork.
I didn't realize until halfway through the book that each chapter was a different story that was well placed behind the chapter in front of it. I see now that the title says GLASS BEADS Stories. I was happy that it had a lot of dialogue, although I was exhausted by the very extensive use of the word f*****. It just wore me down. The experience of these girls throughout their lives was eye opening and to me discouraging, but I was glad to see whenever they overcame obstacles in their lives. This is a book definitely worth reading.
