Twelve-year-old Jasmine adores her photographer Father and wants to be an artist just like him.

What they’re saying about it:
 *
“Stained Glass Summer is a strong, stirring debut novel by Mindy Hardwick. Hardwick deftly draws us into Jasmine’s world with her memorable characters and evocative prose. We eagerly follow along as Jasmine experiences her first crush on Island boy Cole, and explores her relationship with her father, her art and her self….”

“It’s been a long time since a book has captured and held my attention from beginning to end. However, my long dry spell ended this weekend when I downloaded Stained Glass Summer. Hardwick has created a powerful, poignant story that mixes the pain of growing up with the realization of parent’s limitations and a touch of first crush love.”
