'The Glass Spinner' by Lynne Benton - reviewed by Sharon Tregenza




THE GLASS SPINNER


When 12-year old William's mother leaves the family home, he is devastated. His father's bitterness increases and he decides to take William away on a "holiday".

Strange things start happening and they are centred around an unusual glass paperweight. William's life is about to take an interesting twist as dreams and reality mix and show him the possibility of a world within a world. Does he have the courage to enter that world and face the frightening villain? Can he help his father and will he find his mother? The answer to these and many more questions are found in this intriguing mystery.

The mix of fantasy and reality works well here and the characters are believable and sympathetically drawn. It's a great story in a well written classical style. I particularly enjoyed the scenes with the glass spinner.

And interesting premise well executed, makes this book an enjoyable read.  I'd definitely recommend it for 8 years up and for adults too.
