Review:

'...fascinating.' (Books For Keep)

The reader is reflectively and imaginatively involved in the dilemmas and identities of the characters. This dual focus of growth in the text and in being engaged with the text depends on self-consciousness, and parallels theh experience of teh reviewer with this enlightening book". (Eduacational review May 2006)

The reader is reflectively and imaginatively involved in the dilemmas and identities of the characters. This dual focus of growth in the text and in being engaged with the text depends on self-consciousness, and parallels theh experience of teh reviewer with this enlightening book". (Sanford Lakoff)
