Shocked at the overall rating!!
Cages of Glass, Flowers of Time
By: Charlotte Culin
Genre: YA Fiction
2 out of 5
I expected to really enjoy this book. The rating for it on Goodreads was 4.61 (out of 5 stars) and with 120 reviews. The story was told in the voice of a 14 year old, Claire, but I felt her thoughts and feelings were of a 9 or 10 year old. She was way too immature sounding for me to believe her age. Furthermore, I felt it was poor writing and besides the old man in the woods I couldn’t connect with any of the characters. Claire falls for a boy that helps her deal with the child abuse she encountered, but with how young she seemed to be I had a difficult time buying the romance. And even in those aspects of the story her thoughts were childish to me.
