Review Text

"Silent Saturday is another great book from Helen Grant, who keeps getting better and better with each book. If you enjoy YA thrillers then Silent Saturday – as for that matter her previous three books – comes highly recommended."

Review quote

"After her powerful debut, The Vanishing of Katharina Linden, Grant has established herself as a major talent in YA fiction and this menacing story of stalking and murder simply confirms that... Grant builds characters and tension with smooth confidence, and her dialogue is fresh and contemporary. The whole package adds up to the compulsive first adventure in a trilogy'" -- Sally Morris * Daily Mail * "Silent Saturday is another great book from Helen Grant, who keeps getting better and better with each book. If you enjoy YA thrillers then Silent Saturday - as for that matter her previous three books - comes highly recommended." * A Fantastical Librarian * "I loved Silent Saturday. I also loved Helen Grant's earlier German novels, but something tells me I love this one even more. Silent Saturday is the first of Helen's new Belgian trilogy, and if a horror thriller can be described as comfortable, then this is it . . . Go find a sofa to hide behind. Not that it will help, but you'll be under the impression that you're in control." * Bookwitch *
