Description - Face by Benjamin Zephaniah
"Martin was on top of the world. His credibility was sealed and Natalie was proud of him." If there's one thing that Martin is sure about, it's that life is pretty good to him. But life - as Martin is about to find out - has a habit of throwing the unexpected at you. "At this point Martin knew something terrible had happened to his face. His heart pounded in his chest. He shifted his eyes to the left and saw his father standing over him 'Are you OK, son?'" Martin's life is about to change forever. In his debut novel, poet Benjamin Zephaniah tackles the story of a young man whose life is completely changed when his face is badly scarred in a joyriding accident.

Author Biography - Benjamin Zephaniah
The Author: Benjamin Zephaniah is probably one of the most high-profile international authors writing today, with an enormous breadth of appeal, equally popular with both adults and children. Most well-known for his performance poetry with a political edge for adults and ground-breaking performance poetry for children, Benjamin also has his own rap/reggae band, and has appeared on Desert Island Discs. He is in constant demand internationally to perform his work: he is (he thinks) Nelson Mandela's favourite poet, and is the only Rastafarian poet to be short-listed for the Chairs of Poetry for both Oxford and Cambridge University. Benjamin lives in East Ham, London.
