Glass Geishas pulled me in from the very first page. The writing style is fluid and engaging and the story incredibly gripping. I read it, cover to cover, in two sittings and was left wanting more. The Japanese culture is one that I knew nothing about, but the author has thoroughly researched the subject matter and goes onto to purvey her findings in incredible detail.

The story follows a young, naive, English girl who goes to Roppongi to meet up with some school friends and make some quick money. She instantly finds herself involved in the seedy world of the Japanese club scene with a string of debts and a lack of friends. The pace of the book speeds up in the second part and has a couple of unexpected twists at the end. The descriptive writing style was such that I found myself talking out loud to the characters!

This debut novel is sure to be the first of many and marks the emergence of a very talented author.
