Run, Rebel by Manjeet Mann



Praise for Run, Rebel – a Guardian best book of 2020: ‘A tightly crafted series of punchy, often heart breaking narrative poems . . .  Mann’s brilliant, coruscating verse novel lays out the anatomy of Amber’s revolution, and the tentative first flowerings of hope and change.’ Guardian

I am restless, my feet need to fly.

Amber is trapped – by her father’s rules, by his expectations, by her own fears.  Now she’s ready to fight – for her mother, for her sister, for herself. Freedom always comes at a price.

Run, Rebel is a trailblazing verse novel that thunders with rhythm, heart and soul – perfect for fans of Sarah Crossan, Elizabeth Acevedo and Rupi Kaur.
