Synopsis:

Fat, clumsy Simon Glass is a nerd, a loser. Everyone picks on him, until Rob Haynes showed up. Rob, a transfer student with charisma to spare, immediately becomes the undisputed leader of the senior class. And he has plans for Simon. Rob's mission: Turn sniveling Simon from total freak to would-be prom king. But as Simon rises to the top of the social ranks, he shows a new confidence and a devious side that power-hungry Rob did not anticipate. And when Simon uncovers a dangerous secret, events darken. The result is disquieting, bone-chilling . . . and brutal. Written with authenticity and an extraordinary sense of timing, Shattering Glass is a dark, suspenseful, coming-of-age story that propels first-time young adult novelist Gail Giles into the realm of great writers to watch.
