The Lovereading4Kids comment
As with so many of Geraldine’s novels, she has in Gold Dust created an entirely original yet believable world, this time in Brazil. Utterly engrossing, fast-paced, full of humour and heartbreak your imagination will run riot throughout the novel and you’ll be in awe of the author’s skill in creating something quite so good.
Gold Dust by Geraldine McCaughrean
Inez and her brother are amazed to find a huge hole being dug right outside the front door of their father's shop. Then suddenly more holes appear all over the main street and before long the cars can't use the road and everyone has to walk around balancing on planks of wood. It can only be a matter of time before the foundations give way and the whole town collapses. People are travelling from all over the country - the word on everyone's lips is GOLD. A fast-paced tale of a South American gold rush, told with all Geraldine McCaughrean's usual skill and verve.
'a rich tale of the lust for money that undermines an entire Brazilian town' The Guardian
'This novel is pure gold dust: not only teenagers will value it.' Times Educational Supplement
