Review quote

A very modern tale of adolescent love and identity ... the humour is good (Keren David is funny on the resemblance of the London Jewish community to the 19th-century aristocracy) and the complexities and confusion of life for teenagers is brought to life well in a novel told from both Kitty and Theo's perspectives. Telegraph This Is Not A Love Story evokes Amsterdam beautifully -- Amanda Craig New Statesman, 'Best Children's Books of for the Summer'show more
