Reviews

Magnificent ... a disturbing but exhilerating experience. * The Independent * This novel is a masterpiece ... It deserves to become a modern children's classic. * Books for Keeps * Truly remarkable ... It's like Cormac McCarthy for kids - brilliant. * Venue * I strongly recommend this book. * Teen Titles * It captivates you so that when you start reading you can't stop! * Newcastle Upon Tyne Evening Chronicle * Beautifully written and unforgettable. * Time Out *
