Review:

This powerful and humane book shows that hatred is never an answer, and proves the pointlessness of torture and the danger of thinking of anyone as 'other.' (Nicolette Jones Sunday Times)

One of her greatest achievements is to make the frightening monotony of the two years he suffers so full of suspense. (Kate Kellaway Observer)

An excellent novel . . . superb (Amanda Craig The Times)

Extremely powerful, and the descriptions of torture are genuinely harrowing. (The Guardian)

Timely, gritty fiction. (Times Review)

Could it happen? It has happened. That's why teenagers should read this book. (Irish Times)

Rising star: Anna Perera. Her novel highlights the teenagers sent to the camp as it tugs readers into its vivid nightmare journey. (The Independent)

About the Author:

Anna Perera was born in London to an Irish mother and Sri Lankan father. She worked as an English teacher in two secondary schools in London, and later became responsible for a unit for excluded boys. She lives in Hampshire, England. Guantanamo Boy is her first teenage novel.
