Lastly, I want to talk about the book cover again. Like I said, I purchased both the ebook and physical book. The artwork is so beautiful. The covers of both Broken Dolls and Shattered Girls could easily hang on my office walls; I love them so much. I can't wait to see what the third book will look like and bring.

**eBook is from my personal library, for an honest review.
Shattered Girls is another fabulous story about living dolls. I love the idea behind the story and enjoyed reading about Ella. As a doll she's incredibly sweet, but the decision to stay in a small plastic body has done quite a bit of damage to the people who love her. Gabby and Ella are close and I liked their connection. Gabby is smart and strong, which is something I loved about her. I couldn't wait to find out if they'd be able to find the people who were behind the large number of dolls and this kept me on the edge of my seat. They're a fantastic team and that was something I enjoyed very much about their story.
Tyrolin Puxty mixes terrific descriptions of technology with an intriguing mystery. I liked the concept of living people being turned into dolls a lot. They might have been created to do good, but now someone else is using them for gain. Unfortunately this is something that often happens in reality, which is a thought-provoking subject. I was fascinated by this straight away. Shattered Girls is an adrenaline rush with original combat scenes, creepy elements and an interesting view of technology. I love Tyrolin Puxty's world building and really enjoyed reading this amazing creative story.
Shattered Girls by Tyrolin Puxty is the sequel to her first book Broken Dolls. Now this is the first book that I have read in the series and I have to admit that there are spots of where I didn't really understand what all was going on since I had not read the first book so I suggest that if you have not read the first book in this series that you go back and read that first before pursuing this book. It will help it be more enjoyable and certain instances to be better understood and followed.
Shattered Girls starts off with Gabby and Ella preparing to go to school. Ella is pretending to be an inanimate doll but that ploy quickly fails when Ella exposes herself to be able to walk and talk on her own when she confronts a girl who is bullying Ella at school. Then the secret is not just out there but everywhere as a video is shot and then uploaded to YouTube. They play it off that Ella is a robot but not everyone believes that. People are disappearing and the police are proving ineffective in finding out what is going on. Then Gabby's parents disappear as well. The man that they call and count on, the Professor, is acting strange but things are worse than they think. A lot is going on and it is up to Gabby and Ella to not only to figure it out but to stop it before it takes over the whole world.
Despite not having read the first book in this series once I got past a few elements of where I didn't really understand or know what had happened in the past I really enjoyed this book. It really is an engaging book that draws you in and makes you want to know what is going on and what happens next. I love how the author even got me to think a certain way about Ella. The overall idea of the story is interesting as well...a world with dolls who were once human. This story definitely has some twists and turns that make you wonder who's on who's side really but that just adds to it's enjoyment in my opinion. When this story ends it leaves you on a cliffhanger but the author includes a nice little teaser for you to prepare you for the next book in the series and I have to say that I can't wait to read it. I fully intend to go back and read the first book and then reread this one so that I can fully appreciate the storyline written here.
Overall I give this book 4.5 out 5 stars. I really enjoyed it and definitely recommend it to anyone who likes a good SciFi/Fantasy book and who is also a fan of dolls and the unique. This book will really check off a lot of boxes for you.
I won’t go into details of the synopsis, but know that this is well written and perfect for kids 12 and up. There are plenty of creepy moments that leave you shuddering. Then there is the excitement. The technology. The moments when you can’t stop reading. This book is truly unique and imaginative. If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary, this is it.
