it wasn't a waste of time, either. It's about a 16 year old girl named Beth who is forced to go along with her mother to her mother's childhood home. Hanny Lynn, Beth's mother, ran away from her family when she was a teenager and hasn't had contact with them since, and for a good reason! But what secret is hiding under the surface of this family? And why does Aunt Iris hate Hanny Lynn so much?

It was a little disappointing. I was expecting so much more from this book, but I do have to say the characterization was strong. I liked the contrasting personalities - especially that of drunken Aunt Iris. And the whole glass concept woven into the book was interesting as well. All in all, I'd probably give it a B.

The Glass House People - By Kathryn Reiss
The protagonist in this book is Hannah. When Hannah was fifteen she ran away from her family, and house. She did this because she felt like she was in love with her sisters �to be� husband. One night Hannah was talking to him in his bedroom, and Iris (Hannah�s sister), walked in, and got the wrong idea. That night he was told to leave the house right away by Hannah�s an Iris�s parents. They were all crowded around the top of the staircase, and somehow he fell, cracked his head on the radiator, and died. Hannah�s goal was to have a good relationship with her family, but mainly her sister. Since what happened, she wasn�t sure if they would forgive her.
Hannah�s barrier is when she brings her children, Tom, and Beth to her family at her old house, Iris is still thinking that Hannah pushed her husband . Iris refuses to forgive her sister. At the end of the book, they figure out who really pushed him.
I liked the author�s writing style because she didn't go on and on, but instead she just explained what needed to be explained. When I first started to read this book, I thought that it was going to be a romance. I decided to keep reading though, and found that it was more of a mystery. I�m not one who loves mysteries, but I liked this one a lot! I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries, or who likes to read books that seem realistic.

Her crazy aunt is always yelling at her and her mother for some unknown reason. Beth soon learns the startling truth.

Beth wanders for answers and starts to find some interesting information, her mother was a "rebel" in her younger years and was trying to split the marridge of her sister and her fiance. Later she learns that it might be her mothers fault!!! Will she ever know who did it??? An absolute must-read mystery book. It will keep you wondering to the very end!

I don't know what it is about Reiss that I found so appealing when I was younger, but that appeal level has gone significantly down. I still do find some of her books to be positively fascinating, but really? She calls this a book? It begins slow and continues to be slow throughout the sequence of events. In comparison to Reiss's more supernatural books, this is a complete bore. It contains an obnoxiously simple and linear plot in which pretty much nothing happens. The entire book continues to basically be a broken record, with no real resolution, twists, anything much. It's unnecessarily melodramatic, and at multiple times I found myself uncontrollably laughing at the absurdity of it all, especially at what were supposed to be the more tense parts. The only well-developed truly round character in the story is Grandad, and he doesn't play much of a role at all until the unsatisfying end. This is not a book worth your time. I love her supernatural ones, but this really was nothing special.

A Review by Sherri
I thought this "The glass house people" was a good book, I thought Hannah was the best character though, because she was accused for killing someone, so it was like a mystery. It seemed like you were actually in the story, like when they got to their grandmas and grandpas house. They explained how the house was, and what it looked like. I would give this book a rating of 5 stars, because it was GOOD! I think anyone who likes mysteries should read this book; it's an AWESOME book!
