facelikeglass.jpgafacelikeglass.jpgA Face Like Glass (Amulet Books, 2017) by Frances Hardinge is set in a believable, yet very unique underground city of Caverna.

Neverfell doesn't remember anything before she was five when she ended up living and working with Cheesemaster Grandible as his cheese making apprentice. Her master makes her wear a mask whenever she meets anyone, which doesn't happen very often as she's never let outside his tunnels. At twelvish, Neverfell assumes the mask is because she's so ugly. But when Neverfell goes out into the city itself, others think her face is terrifying, but for a reason she could never imagine. Will Neverfell be able to solve the mystery of where she came from?

If you like middle grade fantasy, you should read this book.

The cover on the left is the cover of the book I read. The cover on the right is the UK version, which I like better. The book originally came out in 2012.

Author Frances Hardinge has written a number of other books. You can read about them in her library. Her bio made me laugh. She likes wearing black hats as you can see here.
