Girl Detached by Manuela Salvi

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.

    1. This is translated from Italian and was withdrawn from sale in Italy when it appeared on a list of books considered a danger to children. Read this review it has an interview on it from Manuela and its very interesting. Sorry it took so long to get back to you, I was on Holidays.


  1. I read an ARC of this book and adored it! It handles issues very sensitively and I really don’t see why it was banned. I thought it was a brilliant, yet harrowing, and insightful book.
