• A complex novel that succeeds in exploring the controversial subject of sibling incest without sensation . . . A chilling, powerfully written tale with lasting effects for both teenage and adult readers

    Jake Hope, The Bookseller
  • It is sensitively written (with one quite graphic sex scene), and alternating chapters from the protagonists' point of view lets the reader get inside their heads. Recommended for very mature readers

  • The reader is immediately involved

    Lesley Martin, School Library Association
  • A harrowingly tragic story . . . Suzuma's writing is compelling and its quality beyond question but there will be many (and not just those in the "young adult" category) who will be genuinely shocked by what they are reading here

    Robert Dunbar, The Irish Times
  • The novel's surprises continue to the very end

    Hazel Rochman, Booklist USA
