Good things . . .

. . . come in Treez. In this case, the book blog, Lovely Treez Reads, which posted a smashing review of Twenty Questions for Gloria this week. Here’s the review in full:

GLORIA UK final cover 1“Aimed at young readers aged 14 and over, this new novel from Martyn Bedford is less high-octane thriller and more a sensitively written, contemplative account of the trials and tribulations of teenage life. Gloria is sick and tired of her mundane life, each day blending into the other, but along comes Uman, this exotic creature whose clothes, vocabulary and general demeanour are unlike anything she’s experienced before. He’s a breath of fresh air, no, make that a hurricane, and Gloria lets herself get swept away without any thought of the consequences.

This novel makes a refreshing change from all the ‘noisier’ YA fiction currently on the market. It is a clever, compelling story with fully realised characters who don’t have to wield a weapon or possess super powers in order to engage the reader. The author skilfully recreates the uncertainties and angst of teenage years, that limbo between childhood and adulthood. Yes, it’s a slow burner but stick with it and you’ll appreciate its warmth and emotional intelligence.”
