Review quote

An enjoyable and intriguing read that grips you from the beginning. * Laura's Little Book Blog * An 'unputdownable' mystery, in which we race the narrator to solve the crime - and a character with selective mutism is included without sensationalism or cliches. * Scottish Booktrust * Faye Bird has achieved a remarkable thing here, she has managed to deliver to the reader a very detailed understanding of the life of a SM young person, without ever being patronising... YA readers will find a great deal to identify with in the twisting and turning sub-plots. * Awfully Big Reviews * I couldn't put this book down and just found it majorly interesting. * The Book Moo * I strongly recommend this book and I'd love to read more by Faye Bird in future. * YA Under My Skin *
