Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 'One of the reasons this humane and carefully crafted book is so readable is that the author celebrates ordinariness and childishness even as he chronicles terrible cruelty. But prepare for shock and tears.' -- The Sunday Times 'Haunting ... dangerous and desperate, but also full of courage and hope.' -- The Guardian
