Reviews

  • "Undoubtedly her best yet - single mum, feisty daughter, jaunty style - but there is a darker thread running through it"

    Sunday Telegraph
  • "A book that children will respond to and be empowered by . . . A powerfully portrayed, sometimes shocking but ultimately uplifting story, this is a book not to be missed"

    The Bookseller
  • "Darker, shocking in its exposure of the vulnerability of streetwise kids who have to seem tough, luridly well-written yet curiously as sentimental as Dickens"

    Financial Times
  • "More than lives up the expectations of the many readers eagerly waiting for her new book . . . disturbingly perceptive and provocative"

    Guardian
  • "Wilson is doing something important and rare. Not content to stand still, she's widening and deepening the scope of her work while maintaining its central hold on her readers. She's so good, it's exhilarating"
