UnsettlingReviewed in the United States on 19 February 2020
I suppose the author wanted us to contemplate how people have many facets, and many faces, but can still be worthwhile individuals. Those who turned out to be good in this novel were a surprise, as for most of the time they were not. There was little to admire or like in them, and I almost stopped reading any number of times. Unsettling.

What can I say? One of my favorite authors.Reviewed in the United States on 3 December 2016
I am such a Cynthia Voigt junkie that it is difficult to 'review' this objectively. It was immensely balanced, articulate, witty and finely crafted: immensely satisfying. In the Kingdom series, the author has used the (spoiler alert!!) secret identity device with consummate skill, and Glass Mountain is a delightful kaleidoscopic modern day example. I'm a little curious about the choice of title...if it needs explaining, then maybe I wasn't playing close enough attention to symbolism and metaphor throughout.

one of my favorite love stories!Reviewed in the United States on 19 December 2014
It holds up on a third reading! Echoes of twelfth night and fairy tales, princes in disguise and ladies to be stormed. A tale laced with laughter . . .
