Glass Town is a graphic novel based on the early writings of the Brontës and their juvenilia. Trying to escape the pain from the loss of their two eldest siblings, the rest of Brontë children; Charlotte, Emily, Anne and Branwell take to their imagination and start writing elaborate and fantastical stories around their fictional world Glass Town.

Armed with the Brontës biographies and early juvenilia, Greenberg retells their story with her own fictional twists and wonderful illustrations that bring it all to life. It was an absolutely wonderful and heartwarming experience reading Glass Town, however, I don’t really recommend it if you don’t know anything about the Brontës, or if you haven’t read some of their works. I believe this is intended for Brontë fans out there, and to those I say, you won’t be disappointed.
