The Sound of Broken Glass

Today I’m featuring a book that I’m reading for review. 

He sat on the front steps of the house in Woodland Road, counting the banknotes he’d stored in the biscuit tin, all that was left of his mum’s wages. Frowning, he counted again. Ten pounds short. Oh, bloody hell. She’d found the new stash and pilfered it. Again.

Blinking back sudden tears, he scrubbed the back of his hand against his nose, trying to quell the panic rising in his stomach.

Panic and hunger. It was only Wednesday and she didn’t get paid again until Saturday. How was he going to feed the two of them on the little bit of money that was left?

I’m reading this one in conjunction with a Partners in Crime book tour. There was a prologue to this book, but I went straight with giving you Chapter 1 because I felt like the prologue wouldn’t make any sense to you (I have a love-hate relationship with prologues). Overall, this is definitely shaping up to be a great read. Hope you will come back for my tour stop on March 18th to find out my final feelings on this one!
