Review quote

"This is a lively and imaginative novel about consumerism, youth, art, isolation, entrapment and survival, the sort of thing that might happen if Kafka wrote a script for Big Brother." -- Sydney Morning Herald "Thought-provoking and addictive." -- Magpies "Ritchie writes with insight and casual elegance, managing to create a work that is rich and moving." -- Westerly Magazine "Ritchie has written a unique, modern tale aimed at the younger generation." -- MC Reviews "An absorbing young adult read with a dark edge." -- Aussie Reviews "To sum this book up in two words: Wow. What?" -- Belles Beautiful Books "A fascinating insight into the human heart and mind." -- Lamont Books " a suspense filled young adult novel like no other." -- DeeScribe Writing "This novel is a great character study of how people deal with isolation and containment. A slow burning YA thriller." -- Tims Bookshop Inky Awards (Longlisted 2015)
