‘Face’ by Benjamin Zephaniah

First teenage novel for a while – hence the quick read.

Didn’t really enjoy this – 3 stars – it was all a bit ‘nice’ and predictable. I was expecting something more hard hitting as a debut novel from Zephaniah.

I like the concept: teenager whose life is completely changed when he suffers major burns in a car accident. The novel explores friendship, relationships and family life – I just thought it needed a bit more – not gritty enough.
