BACK

Behind Glass

by Rabinowich, Julya

Just like a mirror, Alice’s life has been shattered into a thousand pieces.

She couldn’t endure the narrowness and silence, the tyranny of her grandfather, anymore. She flees to Niko, her great love, where she hopes to find comfort and stability. The two of them spend a wonderful summer full of freedom. But then everything changes: Niko is increasingly short-tempered and things get very ugly. In the moment of her greatest despair, however, Alice can escape this toxic vortex. Julya Rabinowich writes with a narrative intensity that was absent from young adult fiction for a long time. Empathetically and with poetic force she portrays the facets of violence and the steps necessary to reach emancipation.
