Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Virginia Woolf's Mrs Dalloway meets Judy Blume's Forever is as good a pitch as I've heard this year, and this beautifully crafted, complex novel which Ness calls his most personal yet, does not disappoint. [...] Told with real tenderness, it's a brilliant portrayal of the intensity of a teenager's inner life. The Bookseller
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)
