Hop on over to Open Road Media's Blog to find out more about Guantanamo Boy author Anna Perera's story time favorites.
About the author:
Anna spent a few years teaching English in London secondary schools, and more time running a unit for adolescent boys who'd been excluded from mainstream school, but yes, you guessed it, she spent the rest of the time reading.
She also loves hot air balloons, preferably those gliding over the Valley of the Kings in Egypt, or the South Downs in Hampshire. As well as walking and cuddling the family's golden labrador, there's nothing like listening to heartfelt music, plus riding horses that run like the wind. (Though not at the same time, naturally). She admires every kind of explorer, people who are passionate about their subject, and those with the guts to stand up for what they believe.
Check out Anna on her website, twitter and facebook.

He's kidnapped—then taken to a place thousands of miles from his home in the UK. A place where torture and terror are the daily routine. A place he may never be allowed to leave … A place called Guantanamo Bay.
