Glasdrum | Berg’s Book Club

I know this is a little late – I had someone reverse into my car (more on that on Friday). Welcome to the first of Berg’s Book Club. Today, I will be reviewing Fiona Macbain’s Glasdrum.

The story is essentially about a mother […]

The characters are well-rounded and leap from the page, you can really get a sense of the protagonist, Ant. She’s scary, witty, intelligent, tough and a rebel, but her motivation is her little nerdy, scaredy-cat brother, Mattie. Nothing else […]
