"A teenager living in an alternate-history futuristic Versailles must escape its walls by selling a happy-enducing makeup called Glitter"--



“Glitter” is definitely a unique book that will appeal to many.  Unfortunately, I am not one of them.

The world is fascinating and the characters are diverse.  The author did not do an info dump about it all, which was both appreciated and frustrating.  By frustrating, I mean it seemed to go too long before anything at all was explained. It read slowly for me, but overall was well-written, and I believe many will fall in love with the story.

“Glitter” is a book I can neither recommend nor warn against.  My suggestion is to try it yourself if it sounds like something that may appeal to you.

This unbiased review is based upon a complimentary copy provided by the publisher.
