Glass Half Broken

When the people Annie love mysteriously vanish one by one, how will she uncover the secret that lies trapped inside her own deceptive mind?

Annie knows there’s something wrong with her. A child genius with crippling social anxiety and a compulsion for tearing at her wrist, Annie struggles to please her reputation-obsessed mother. Annie’s dad is the only one who understands her. But when he runs off on a spiritual quest during a manic episode, Annie blames herself.

As she matures, Annie’s grief is reignited each time someone she cares about mysteriously disappears without a trace. Suspecting she’s gone insane, Annie learns she can’t trust anyone, least of all herself. When she finally discovers the shocking truth, Annie’s next move could mean the difference between life and death.

Author's Notes

Editorial Reviews

"I'm inclined to describe the book by saying it's what Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar would have been like if it had been written by Philip K Dick. I consider this to be an absolutely stunning debut novel. I genuinely couldn't put the book down once I started reading, it is very fast-paced and absolutely mind-bending." —Goodreads Reviewer

"It is one of the first stories I felt like I just couldn't put down in a long time." —Timothy R. Baldwin, Author and Sandra's Book Club Reviewer

"Throughout, the beautiful writing gave me a window into a wide range of experiences, some familiar to me and some unfamiliar, and when I finished the book I wanted to tell everyone to read it." —Lori Handelman, Clear Voice Editors

"Glass Half Broken is a psychological domestic thriller that deals with mental illness and its consequences on the person affected and those around them. The author does a great jobof highlighting deficiencies in the institutions meant to help people with mental illness as well as the plight of the homeless." —Jacqui Corn-Uys,
