The Absence of Sparrows by Kurt Kirchmeier
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
When a really dark cloud covers your town and suddenly some people are turned to a glassy stone... and later shatter... what would you do? How would you protect your family or yourself? How obsessed would you be with listening to the radio, and would you follow along with some bizarre plan to solve this global problem? That's the tension Ben deals with when his summer plans are upended by the glassification plague. There were several plot lines that weren't wrapped up as well as they could have been given the strength of the first half of the book, hence only 3 stars.
