Summary
Harleen is a tough, outspoken, rebellious kid who lives in a ramshackle apartment above a karaoke cabaret owned by a drag queen named MAMA. Ever since Harleen's parents split, MAMA has been her only family. When the cabaret becomes the next victim in the wave of gentrification that's taking over the neighborhood, Harleen gets mad.

When Harleen decides to turn her anger into action, she is faced with two choices- join Ivy, who's campaigning to make the neighborhood a better place to live, or join The Joker, who plans to take down Gotham one corporation at a time.

Harley Quinn- Breaking Glass is at once a tale of the classic Harley readers know and love, and a heartfelt story about the choices teenagers make and how they can define--or destroy--their lives. This is the first title in DC's new line of original graphic novels for middle grade and young adult readers.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Harley Quinn is notorious for her allegiance to the Joker, but how did she start on her path to chaotic villainy? That's what this origin story tackles, starting when Harleen Quinzel arrives in Gotham City, where she lives with Mama, a larger-than-life drag queen living in her late-grandmother's building. As Harley settles into her new school, she makes friends with smart, justice-oriented Ivy, and together they lock horns with John Kane, the scion of Gotham's hottest real estate developers, who are swiftly gentrifying neighborhoods like Harley's. Tamaki's take on Harley Quinn is remarkably nuanced. Harley's motivations are largely noble, though her actions are far more volatile than those Ivy chooses, like protest or civil disobedience. That, coupled with Tamaki's exceptional talent for writing snappy dialogue, makes for deeply multifaceted characters. Pugh's beautiful artwork carries that dynamism out, as well: his realistic figures are shaded with plenty of depth and represent a refreshingly realistic array of distinct body shapes and sizes. This appealing entry point to the DC universe presents a captivating, vivid portrait of a so-called villain.--Sarah Hunter Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Harleen Quinzel pulls into Gotham as a broke teenage drifter in this tale of gentrification and class struggle. After being taken in by a drag queen called Mama, she begins to attend classes at Gotham High. Quickly making friends with ardent intersectional feminist Ivy, carefree Harley finds conflict with John Kane, the misogynistic head of the film club, and with his parents, unscrupulous developers set on gentrifying Harley's new neighborhood. When a mysterious figure, the Joker, enters the scene, his goals and methods seem initially in line with Harley's, but it's unclear whether he is trustworthy. Tamaki (This One Summer) neatly maps DC universe characters--and their wealth, wits, and willingness to get their hands dirty--to high school drama. Harley is a relatively breezy character whose questionable ethics often mirror those closest to her, and pairing her with a found family of drag queens and community organizers directs her chaotic whimsy toward a social justice bent. The diverse cast is depicted in a realistic, frenzied art style by Pugh (Hellblazer), whose dynamic illustrations are particularly suited to the story's stunning costumes and over-the-top dramatics. Ages 13--17. (Sept.)"
