In the underground city of Caverna, the world's most skilled craftsmen toil in the darkness to create delicacies beyond compare - wines that can remove memories, cheeses that can make you hallucinate, and perfumes that convince you to trust the wearer, even as they slit your throat. The people of Caverna are more ordinary, but for one thing: their faces are as blank as untouched snow. Expressions must be learned, and only the famous Facesmiths can teach a person to show (or fake) joy, despair, or fear - at a price.
Into this dark and distrustful world comes Neverfell, a little girl with no memory of her past and a face so terrifying to those around her that she must wear a mask at all times. For Neverfell's emotions are as obvious on her face as those of the most skilled Facesmiths, though entirely genuine. And that makes her very dangerous indeed.

Wrong narrator for the text
Would you try another book from Frances Hardinge and/or Kevin T. Collins?
Yes, I like Hanrdinge's writing.
What was one of the most memorable moments of A Face Like Glass?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The book needed a female narrator. Why on earth the publishers decided on a male narrator is utterly beyond me. A male voice actively detracted from the story for me. I ended up reading the last third of the book in print because I found the narration so distracting and ineffective.
Any additional comments?
Based on the narration, I cannot recommend this excellent text as an audiobook. Nothing wrong with the narrator--he was just woefully miscast for this book.
