• "Strong stuff from a writer who is never afraid to be outspoken"

    Nicholas Tucker, Independent
  • "Reading Anne Fine’s work is always a challenge as well as a delight. She’s like a difficult relative who appears at family events and tells everyone a few home truths, yet gets away with it because she has such a wickedly witty turn of phrase"

    Tony Bradman, Guardian
  • "A riveting read"
