The Girl with Glass Feet
6 New from
A quirky story based in a surreal world where all that's important is making the most of the time you have. Beautiful and magical, this be read in one go but will not be forgotten.

Beautifully written from multiple points of view. This is really evocative of the time and place and when you close your eyes, you feel you are there. Stockett writes of a time where slavery has gone, but things are still not right between white and black communities. Segregation and racism in the southern American states is a huge theme, but the strength of the characters and their mission to make a difference, no matter how small, is enormously uplifting. The reader will get the feeling of something bigger being set in motion as a result of many of these small differences and will love this story forever.

Perfectly done in three parts. Written in Jack's voice, the first begins quite slowly (do have patience - it's worth it!) as the reader realises what Ma and Jack's situation is, then quickly picks up the pace in the second part to a scene which had my heart racing at one point! The third part of the story is centred around coming to terms with the events in the second and is sad, tender and really enables the reader to empathise with Jack and his feelings. The ending is bittersweet but in no way a disappointment. Fab!
