Review quote

"An extraordinary book, and truly is Malorie Blackman at her best" Guardian "Blackman's emotional intelligence is such that Boys Don't Cry should be read aloud in every secondary school ... [She] is a bold, engaging storyteller whose intellectual daring and clear prose reaches kids that other authors don't. I vote she becomes the next Children's Laureate" -- Amanda Craig The Times "Her writing at its best, creating characters and a story which, once read, will not easily go away" -- Nick Tucker Independentshow more
