  • Harper Lee has a worthy successor. Wolk is a big new talent

    The Times
  • Weaving together complex themes with extraordinary skill, debut author Lauren Wolk has created a book that deserves to be read . . . A timeless story, beautifully placed in an evocative and brilliantly realised historical setting

    Guardian
  • Suspenseful, wise, beautifully written and emotionally engaging

    Sunday Times
  • Haunting . . . With a precociously perceptive girl as a main character; a damaged, misunderstood recluse; and themes of prejudice and bigotry, comparisons to Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird will abound. But Wolk gives us her own story - one full of grace and stark, ­brutal beauty

    New York Times
  • A powerful, beautifully written coming-of-age novel . . . This emotionally intelligent, complex story deserves recognition and praise
