WHEN GLASS SHATTERS
When glass shatters, it leaves behind dangerous debris.
So, too, does death to those consigned to pick up the pieces.
After her mother and new stepfather are killed in a car wreck, eighteen-year-old fitness instructor Lorraine ‘Rain’ Mattina has been given sole guardianship of her twelve-year-old siblings. With a learning disability and a checkered past, Rain is not anyone’s idea of a proper guardian; she can’t even cook anything but boxed macaroni and cheese. So, when she’s confronted with her first crisis, Rain hops a train to New York City to seek the help of her estranged stepbrother.
Nineteen-year-old Noah Mack, Duke University’s highest-ranked student, is two matches away from winning the NCAA Wrestling Championship when the stepsister he barely knows shows up at Madison Square Garden, right in the middle of the tournament, asking him to come home. But Noah hasn’t had a home since his own mother died four years ago; he hasn’t even spoken to his father in two years. So, when he’s asked to come home and help, his response is something akin to “get the hell lost.”
Lorraine, undeterred by her stepbrother’s belligerence, decides to take care of the family on her own; she just has to give herself a chance. Noah, on the other hand, can’t get his new stepsister out of his mind; in fact, he’s decided to walk away from the championship title, and his college education, to help the family he disowned the day his father decided to remarry.
With Noah now living in the apartment out back, the Mattina/Mack household needs to move on from the loss of their parents and learn to live harmoniously with each other, but when a long-lost relative decides she’s entitled to custody of her twelve year old niece, Lorraine and Noah need to pull it together to make sure they don’t lose their sister too.
When Glass Shatters is a realistic portrayal of life gone messy; two deaths, four children, and the daunting task of picking up the pieces of a newly shattered life.
