A Face Like Glass by Francis Hardinge

*Received a free copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Well this book was definitely different. It consists of an nation that was built underground using elaborate methods by people that pretty much have no real facial expressions having to be taught the ones they can use. I would find this very off putting to say the least especially since the lower classes are trained with very few expressions making them really unable to convey their true emotions. The main character Neverfell comes from above ground and has a face that shows all of her thoughts like glass would hence the title. The book is about her being used as a tool by everyone while she struggles to regain control of her life. It is a really good premise but I had a hard time really getting into the story though I enjoyed the little details sprinkled throughout. I can only give it 3/5 stars.
