A joyful and unforgettable story for readers aged 8+

Young readers will relate to this wonderful story about being true to who you really are


Glitter Boy is a timely and heart-warming story that gives a voice to young people, one that will really resonate with contemporary middle grade readers. We loved it.

~Emily

James loves dancing, poetry, and Mariah Carey (not in that order, though, because Mariah would obviously be first!). His teacher, Mr Hamilton, is getting married to his boyfriend and it seems that James will be part of a surprise choir performance at the wedding. But James’s father seems uncomfortable about the plan, and a lot of other things – like any mention of Mr Hamilton, and James’s dancing, and how James talks about his new friend Joel. Meanwhile, a different boy has been harassing James at school and calling him gay, and it’s getting worse every day. James can find relief with his beloved Nan, she’s been having worrying falls, and James can’t tell anyone, or she might be sent to a faraway care home. The secrets are building up, and James is starting to lose his characteristic spark. Can he find the strength to let the truth out?

Ian Eagleton is a primary school teacher, author and content creator for various educational organisatios.
