Reviews

  • "Lisa Jewell’s characters are so real that I finish every book half-expecting to bump into one of them. Modern, complex, intuitive, she just goes from strength to strength."

    Jojo Moyes
  • "An engaging and atmospheric read, Lisa beautifully conjures up the half-child half-adult lives of young teenagers."

    Jane Fallon
  • "Oh but I loved this book – a magical garden right in the centre of the city, a long, hot summer simmering away, a group of young teens, lurching between boredom and passion and ripe for their lives to start. And at its centre a dark and disturbing mystery that keeps you turning the pages long into the night. Lisa Jewell is the most compassionate storyteller. She writes with such lightness of touch, yet her books pack a powerful punch. A stunning, beautiful, mesmerising book that everyone will be reading this summer."

  • "I was utterly gripped from the start… basically a great read."

    Irish Independent
  • "Another winner. Beautiful writing, believable characters, a pacy narrative and dark secrets combine to make this a gripping read."
