The Glass Boy -Melaina Faranda

The Glass Boy is about a very poor boy with a very poor family and his mother gave him to a glass maker who made him get the glass and all the accessories, but one day his master made a deal with another glass maker to whoever wins the glass contest can have their daughter married and be wealthy, then one day the master falls ill and it all depends on Pietro to make the finest glass piece he can make.

One connection I have to this book is that when we went to venice for a holiday, how the boy described it was EXACTLY true!

I think this book was not very clear of the story and didn’t flow very well. Another comment is that I don’t think the master was that respectful to the boy because he called him sewer rat and didn’t even appreciate that the boy was doing all this for his family and that they were all fed good.
