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 London, England. This is her second novel, and she is the author of the critically acclaimed book Guantanamo Boy.

Review:

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.' The tale sparkles like the glass Aaron hoards, light and delicate and full of dreams * The Economist * This novel comes highly recommended for thoughtful older readers. It might even be life-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 *
