The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Red Road in Glass Arrow, the story of Aya, who lives with a small group of women on the run from the men who hunt them, men who want to auction off breeding rights to the highest bidder.

In a world where females are scarce and are hunted, then bought and sold at market for their breeding rights, 15-year old Aya has learned how to hide. With a ragtag bunch of other women and girls, she has successfully avoided capture and eked out a nomadic but free existence in the mountains. But when Aya’s luck runs out and she’s caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition, fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaning.

Guest Post

I’d like to welcome Kristen Simmons to Girl meets Books. She’s doing a guest post on the blog and talking about her dream cast if The Glass Arrow were made into a movie.


Dream Cast for The Glass Arrow

by Kristen Simmons

Ooh! Okay, let’s see. If Glass Arrow was becoming a movie, I would pick:


Naya Rivera for Aya! Not only does she have the right hair, but she has the right fierce disposition (at least I know she’s capable of it from her role on Glee!). I want to see her pick up a bow and fight for her freedom!



Dylan O’Brien for Kiran! There’s only one small problem, and that’s that he’s got dark hair where Kiran’s is lighter. BUT, I think that can be fixed. Kiran’s facial expressions are key and this guy has such an expressive face! (Plus, so cute, right?)



Amanda Seyfried for Daphne! YESSSSS. I just recently stumbled upon this picture and thought THAT IS TOTALLY DAPHNE. This is just how I see her.



And….the wolf from the Twilight movies to play Brax.

  1. I don’t usually agree with dream casts for books, even when the author casts them, but this time my visions of the characters are spot-on with Kristen’s! I absolutely love Dylan O’Brien as Kiran, he would be perfect!
    And i love getting a concrete idea of what Aya looks like – I would love to dress up as her 🙂


I would love to read your thoughts on this post.
