Welcome to the blog tour for
KISS OF BROKEN GLASS by Madeleine Kuderick!
I am so excited to be on the blog tour for KISS OF BROKEN GLASS! I read the book back in August right before the book came out and I really enjoyed it so I was so excited when Hannah from The Irish Banana contacted me to be a part of a special blog tour and scavenger hunt!
If you’re not familiar with KISS OF BROKEN GLASS, it was released back in September by HarperTeen and you can find more info on the book below!
Title: Kiss of Broken Glass by Madeleine Kuderick
Publishing Info: September 9, 2014 by HarperCollins
Genre: Young Adult (Realistic Fiction, Verse)
POV: First Person (Kenna)
Find It Online: Goodreads // Amazon
“In the next 72 hours, Kenna may lose everything—her friends, her freedom, and maybe even herself. One kiss of the blade was all it took to get her sent to the psych ward for 72 hours. There she will face her addiction to cutting, though the outcome is far from certain.
In the ward, Kenna meets other kids like her—her roommate, Donya, who’s there for her fifth time; the birdlike Skylar; and Jag, a boy cute enough to make her forget her problems . . . for a moment.
Madeleine Kuderick’s gripping debut is a darkly beautiful and lyrical novel in verse, perfect for fans of Sonya Sones and Laurie Halse Anderson. Kiss of Broken Glass pulses with emotion and lingers long after the last page.

So this blog tour is a bit different than a regular tour! Each day a different blogger will host a tour stop with a different question. These questions are trivia asking information about KISS OF BROKEN GLASS involving characters and events. Participants in this fun scavenger hunt are encouraged to read the book, find for the answer and share on social media using the hashtag #brokenglass!
There is also a GIVEAWAY on this tour which will be a surprise ARC bundle provided by HarperTeen! In order to enter, participants are encouraged to tweet the answer to that day’s question or post on some form of social media. Then participants will fill in the Rafflecopter form with all five answers after the 5th day to enter the giveaway!
After the 5th day, the tour hosts will reveal the answers to all five questions and we will ask the people who participated in the scavenger hunt to share how many they got correct!
I am the FOURTH person on the tour so be sure to stop at the first three stops for the first three questions as well as the final tour stop tomorrow! See below for the full tour schedule and where you need to go for the scavenger hunt questions!
