Synopsis

The Glass Collector by Anna Perera

Reviews

This novel will definitely interest teenage readers who are eager to know more about the wider world, particularly if their curiosity about Egypt has been piqued by recent events Guardian Anna Perera's book is written for teenagers, but like her previous work, the bestselling Guantanamo Boy, it will charm older readers too. Cairo pulses from its pages, dirty, smelly but intoxicating; 'the magic's everywhere.

-changing for some. I would expect it on awards shortlists in the future Books for Keeps A powerful rendering of human struggle, resilience, and hope Publishers Weekly
