'I want to put this book in every teenager's hand.' * Serendipity Reviews, blog * 'Some books you read and find entertaining. And some books you read and never forget. This is one I will have in my mind for a long time.' * PaulaSHx, blogger * 'Unputdownable . . . a jewel of a book.' * Candy Gourlay * 'An excellent debut. It's a tough and turbulent tale of growing up the hard way, but there's heart and soul on every page. I can't wait to see what Cousins does next.' * Keith Gray, the award-winning author of Ostrich Boys * 'Incredible lightness of touch and humour but also seriously weighty . . . reminded me a lot of Frank Cottrell Boyce.' * Anthony McGowan * 'A tough, charged . . . gripping story.' * Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading4kids * 'Cousins' sheer inventiveness coupled with Laurence's sparky voice, keeps the story from becoming depressing or worthy.' * Suzi Feay, Financial Times * Praise for 15 Days Without a Head:
'This heartfelt well-told debut is a delight.'
