Review quote

Trouble was one of the most talked-about debuts of 2014 and has quickly established Pratt as a leading name in UK YA literature, attracting recognition from the Carnegie, the Branford Boase Award and the YA Book Prize. The friendship of best mates Ruby and Kaz is at the heart of her second novel, set in the exhilarating, heady world of a summer music festival; bands, boys and trouble beckon. Creating an "authentic" teenage voice is one of the big challenges of YA writing and this is where Pratt really excels. Her characters are smart, funny and very real. Fiona Noble The Bookseller -- Fiona Noble The Bookseller This might be one of the easiest reviews I've written in ages. Remix is a smasher of a follow-up to Trouble and proves that Non is going to go from strength to strength, in my opinion. Music lovers will adore the little nods and accuracy of Remix when it comes to loving bands so much that it hurts. Well done, Non. Well done -- SisterSpooky SisterSpooky Remix was a smart, emotionally charged drama fest full of intense emotions and makes the perfect summer book with its focus on endings and new beginnings. [...] I would recommend this book to those who love witty, brutally honest writing and realistic teen characters! -- Becky Day Blogs-of-a-Bookaholic I enjoyed Non Pratt's debut, Trouble, and Remix is even better. The protagonists, who alternate telling the story, have their own distinct characters and engaging dialogue. Pratt conjures up the insecurity and intensity of being young and away at a festival (even one with a Mellow Tent) and builds the tension well [...] The novel is moving and a fun summer read. The Telegraph An anarchic, hilarious paean to friendship, music and epic mistake-making, with pitch-perfect teen voices throughout. -- Imogen Russell-Williams Teens on Moon Lane A hugely enjoyable and accessible read, with its dynamic short chapters, but one that also has some real depth and intelligence. I cannot wait to see what this talented author will do next. The School Librarian ...older YA readers will appreciate the honesty and realism of Pratt's writing. Pratt's gift for dialogue and character development and her creation of a great summery festival setting make this book witty, entertaining, moving, gritty, contemporary and compelling.
