Review quote

If you love Gossip Girl, you'll fall hard and fast for this addictive thriller. 4/5 stars. * Girlfriend Magazine * A real page turner, absorbing and powerful ... Highly recommended. * Reading Time * I just have to say that the first chapter would have to be one of my all time favourite first chapters in a novel I have ever read * Lost in Stories * ...Eliza, a stand-up comic voice replete with the conventions of oral comedy: deliberate verbal red herrings, asides, careful timing, punchlines, one liners. To me, Marr's character Eliza is a modern and very upmarket version of Kylie Mole -- Marlyn MacDonald

About Shirley Marr

Shirley Marr wishes she were many things. Like the front woman of a hot band rocking an audience in an ultra-short mini, but unfortunately she's tone deaf with appalling emo poetry skills. It's a good thing then that writing is her biggest, maddest love. Shirley writes what she describes as tragedy-comedy-drama YA fiction with "Mad-Bad-Little-Miss-Lady-Macbeths". She is the author of the YA novels Fury and Preloved. Shirley is an accountant by day and a writer by night. She also has a website: www.shirleymarr.net

Our customer reviews

Eliza is sixteen, finishing her final year of school and looking forward to the new sports car her mother has promised to buy her when she passes her driving test. Until then she has to put up with her elite school environment, wealthy but absent mother and sometimes infuriating but best friends. The last thing anybody expected to happen in the perfect world of East Rivermoor, the wealthy suburb surrounded by a high fence to keep out the poor and dangerous alike, is for one of their own to commit murder. Eliza's confession is a dark and emotional story told with a raw honesty that doesn't sugar-coat what she has done or why. There is no excuse although she has her reasons but she's not sorry for it, not at all. Fury is compelling, messy, complicated and just a little bit heartbreaking. When pushed to the edge and broken down with no one to turn to, belittled and victimised, is it any wonder that things turn vindictive? Eliza is selfish, spoilt and stuck up and that doesn't change but somehow her soft and vulnerable core shines through endearing us to this fiery redhead who deep down is as lost and broken as the rest of us. A brilliant debut novel.show more
