  • Gourlay has created something very special here . . . [Shine] is about reinvention and the faces we present to the world . . . all wrapped up in an exciting and perfectly paced story with a disturbing and dramatic climax. . . . She has truly found her voice.

    Philip Ardagh, Guardian
  • [An] irresistibly exotic story of family, friendship, ghosts and legends . . . A sparkling jewel of a story.

  • Has you laughing and crying at the same time. You despair at people’s prejudice. But then there are people who make you believe in humanity again. I can’t tell you what style Shine is written in. You just don’t notice. It just feels perfect.

  • There is a deftness of touch . . . This is a moving story about family secrets and the importance of communication and connection.

    Jake, Inky Droplets
