Review by: Vicki Keire on July 26, 2011 :
An awesome end to a great series! I loved this good bye to Zellie.
This third book does exactly what a final book should: wraps up the series, but leaves enough room for the Glimpse universe to live on in. The issues Zellie and crew have grappled with in Glimpse and Glimmer (loyalty, love, morality, family) come to fruition in Glow.
Glimpse was one of the very first Kindle Ya series I picked up. I admit I read this last book more slowly than the others because I really didn't want to leave Zellie and Avery and their world behind. But the series ends in a great place: there are some amazing twists, both with plot and characters. Readers of the series know that Zellie (along with Benjamin and most of the other Retro crew) wants her revenge against Mildred, and this gets dealt with nicely. To call the Retros divided and corrupt when the books starts is an understatement, so the crew really has their work cut out for them. I LOVE the way this gets dealt with in the end. I was thrilled with this twist- don't want to say too much, but I wish I could go to!
There were some surprises with the characters and their relationships, as well. Mel especially came of age in this book as we meet a sexy new bad(ish) boy. :) Benjamin showed both courage and compassion in the face of some unsettling surprises. And of course, there's Avery. (Squee!)
One of the things I admire most about Benefiel's writing shines in Glow: she tackles issues important to young adults head-on, like sexuality and birth control without sounding preachy. Example: in Glow, a conversation about responsible sex, monogamy, and birth control is a really tender moment between sisters who care about each other. We really need more writers who are capable (and unafraid) of writing YA that's both entertaining and meaningful.
A great end to a great series!
