Book Description

2 Sep 2010

Liberty’s family is super-rich but when her dad loses his job, she has to learn that not all that glitters is gold…The sparkling new novel from the author of SHINE.

Liberty Parfitt is sure there’s more to life than getting good exam results and earning lots of money. Unfortunately her super-rich, workaholic dad doesn’t agree - he thinks Liberty’s passion for music is a total waste of time. But when Dad loses his job and falls into a deep depression, Liberty’s talent may be the one thing that can save him.

From the sparkling author of SHINE.

Product Description

Review

Praise for ‘Invisible Girl’:
“Kate Maryon’s characters stay with you long after the book is finished.” Jenny Valentine

Praise for ‘Glitter’:
“Heart-warming and a cut above the rest.” The Daily Express

Praise for ‘Shine’:
“[Kate Maryon] understands a child's deepest feelings, including the negative ones, and she allows Tiff to run through the gamut of them as she slowly works her way through feelings of abandonment, loneliness, fear and anger, until eventually happiness and love can resurface. Readers will recognise all her thoughts. It's an uplifting story which begins with a huge disaster and ends with a new start for everyone. It will reassure and comfort its readers and it exactly inhabits their emotional landscape… I think tween girls are going to love it.” [Four stars] TheBookBag.co.uk

By Kat
Format:Kindle Edition
Glitter is a gripping story with a beautiful ending. Liberty is a realistic character with an intresting personality. It is possibly one of my favourite books and I'm going to read Shine next. This a new author with a great talent who appeals to many young readers

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book ever 20 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been reading a million angels at my school from the class library which I have to say was quite good but glitter is nothing like it. Glitter has to be one of the best books I have ever read. If you or your children like Jacqueline Wilson (I do, I'm her no1 fan!) then you have to read Kate maryon she's great. I would recommend this as book to 8-12 year old's!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Book EVER!!!! 24 Jan 2011
A Kid's Review
Format:Paperback
This book was absolutley amazing!. It is very sad at points but also very happy and joyful at the end. Liberty the main character goes through a lot of scary and emotional things when her Dad loses his job and Lib and her Dad have to move to a grotty old flat somewhere completley new with a school she really hates at the begining and starts to like at the end of the story. The best book I have ever read and age 10-13.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glitter 7 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Glitter was an intriguing book. I gave it 4 stars because there were some bits that were spelt wrong ( they could of been on purpose though.) It was also a reasonable lengthened book, however it could of been a bit longer.

I enjoyed this book and would give it to 10-13 year olds.
