The Lovereading4Kids comment

Original and beguiling, Cherry Heaven has a beautifully written narrative with two voices expertly woven throughout, one of them an all-knowing teenager called Kat and the other a disturbed girl. Both characters are realistically portrayed and the story is both thought-provoking and suspenseful with issues of guilt and redemption, tension and reconciliation all framed in a fast-moving mystery. It has the same engrossing readability and accessibility as her debut novel The Diary of Pelly D.


Cherry Heaven by L J Adlington

In a beautiful new home, Cherry Heaven, people are building a young, liberal society, without focus on the genetic categorization and discrimination that led to the war. But all too soon Kat and Tanka find that Cherry Heaven carries haunting marks of the past. They cannot run from them, and must finally and turn and face them.
