This book has a lot of controversy around it was previously published in Italy and was banned by a lot of schools. In turn it was black listed. Barrington Stoke has now reprinted in the UK and I don’t know about you lot but I’m dying to get my hands on it. It’s on order and we should have it in soon.
Girl Detached by Manuela Salvi
Release Date: 15/09/16
Aleksandra has issues with her voice. Stress makes her stutter, and her life is one of stress. She can only speak clearly on stage, freed by the words of the character she plays. Then, when Aleksandra befriends her new neighbour Megan, and through her meets charming, handsome Ruben, it seems she has discovered a doorway into a different world, and a different Alek. But Ruben wants Aleksandra to play a particular role for him, and it is one that will come close to destroying her.
