Guantanamo Boy

| No Comments

Hot on the heels of President Obama's pledge to close the prison and interrogation centre at Guantanamo Bay, Puffin Books are releasing a novel by Anna Perera, written in reaction to the discovery that not just adults but children have also been held at Guantanamo.

An author's note at the start of the book reads: "Although GUANTANAMO BOY is a work of fictin, it is inspired by real events. It remains a fact that children have been abducted and abused abnd held without charge in the name of justice in Guantanamo Bay and many secret prisons aroudn the world."
