I can honestly say Glitter on the Garland was far more lovely than I expected. I was thinking it would be a light-hearted romp. Helen Juliet managed to perfectly balance the line between too much angst and too much amusement to keep the story wonderfully human throughout. Everything about Matt's first Christmas with his parents post-divorce felt natural. I loved how Helen Juliet displayed the awkwardness of a new family dynamic while still showing how some things never change inside a family. She gave hope for the future for Matt and Tilly and their father's new family even as it was made apparent some things weren't going to get better with time. It was a sobering read with a delightful dash of bubbly throughout to keep me in the frame of mind only brought on by holiday madness. I can't wait to read more of her work and I definitely need my own Stitchin' and Bitchin' group to join.
His other half, Aedan, was a truly unforgettable character. His personality came to life on the page and his struggles were real. By the end of this story I couldn't help but grin as the two of them worked through everything together and gave us the happy ending we want every story, but especially a Christmas one, to have.
This is an exemplary first novel and I'll most certainly be following this author in the future; eagerly awaiting whatever else she decides to share with us.
When his best friend Aedan shows up out of the blue, it throws Matt off kilter, but it seems to be just what Matt needs to knock him out off his holiday rut.
In the midst of the holiday chaos, Juliet creates a wonderful slow burn as the friendship between tge boys begins to reveal itself as something more.
The writing is pithy and fun, yet emotional, and I enjoyed it immensely. I can't wait to read more from this author!
Also, the books looks at discovering your sexuality as well as the racism against Irish Travelers. The divorce between one the hero's parents shapes the story as he moves into adulthood dealing with it.
A lovely tale in many ways.
I would read this again.
