Child of Glass
Gisele is a fragile, strong, transparent girl who denounces the meanness that can mark life in the world. In sparse, poetic language that all of us can understand, however young or old, Child of Glass reminds us of our birthright to become ourselves. Freedom isn’t about accepting what is; it’s about asking the questions and taking the actions that allow us to be at home in the world. A story about difference, exclusion, and ultimately self-acceptance, Child of Glass explores the interplay between inner and outer and the journey we have to go on to become ourselves.
