Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review ...this is no fantasy book but a clever exploration of how we tell ourselves certain narratives in order to make sense of our world. It's a book about speaking your truth without shame, coming to terms with your past and giving a voice to those who have been silenced or mistreated. * Viva Magazine * This is well-written, sensitive on issues such as sexual abuse, and, whether in her tower or the outside world, Ele's voice and vision of the world will keep readers intrigued. * Books for Keeps *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)
