I continue to be a big fan of Helen Laycock and her kids’ books. Glass Dreams is a beautifully told story of intertwining destinies, mad adventures, magical crystal balls, and a traveling circus that is filled with Helen’s usual array of interesting characters: snarky villains, loving grandparents, talented sidekicks, sweet animals, and especially smart and plucky children who are able to outwit the bad guys at every turn and save the day.
Young Jake is heartbroken at the death of his grandmother

There is beauty to be found here, even at the darkest of moments. The openness of Jake through his mannerisms and inner dialogue paints such a vivid, human creature that incites the reader to ache and smile ruefully along with him.
Without Grandma Mo— his anchor and protector of a life that seems to have been lived so very long ago— Jake’s nascent sense of self-reliance and being are put to the test from one world to the next. From the Care Facility of Social Services
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
This is a fantastic children’s book! I loved it!
Jake is a fantastic character! He’s only 12, but he seemed very mature for his age. I loved his attitude. I’m not sure I was as focused at his age though!
This is an amazing story of a boy, a circus and a family secret. There are some other wonderful characters: Khala and Cedric, just to name a couple! Khala is a very brave person. She is also kind-hearted; I loved her war
