The Good: Girls Made of Snow and Glass is told through two POV's. This can be a hit or miss with me, but this book did it beautifully. When I was reading Lynet's chapters, I was bummed when we moved onto to Mina's chapters. And when I was reading Mina's chapters, I was bummed to move onto Lynet's chapters. So, I loved getting into both POV's.
More Good: I absolutely adored Mina's chapters. I've always been interested in the "evil stepmother" trope, so it was incredibly interesting to get a deeper feel for this incredibly complex character. I loved delving into her past and I loved the dichotomy between her "evil" self and the self that wanted to do the right thing. Another thing I really liked was the relationship between Lynet and Nadia. I'm a sucker for a well-developed f/f relationship and I'm an even bigger sucker for understated romantic relationships in YA and this was one of the best.
The Best: So, ultimately my favorite part of Girls Made of Snow and Glass was the complex relationship between Mina and Lynet. Everything else was so great, but this was what kept me turning the pages. It was so wonderfully angsty and simultaneously heart-wrenching and heartwarming. It's so rare to see a YA fantasy novel that doesn't have romance at its forefront, but rather explores the complexity between mothers and daughters. GAH! The relationship here is what great books are made of.
In the end, I absolutely loved and adored every minute of Girls Made of Snow and Glass. Everything from the writing, the world-building, the characters was so, so well done. One slight disclaimer, though: If you're looking for a heavy, action plot, this book doesn't really have that. I don't mind because I tend to love character studies anyway, but if you're expecting that here, you won't find it. Girls Made of Snow and Glass is heavily recommended.
