• Quite brilliant; beautifully, cleverly observed; funny, heart-breaking.

    Roddy Doyle
  • Brilliantly written and absolutely hilarious. Hilary is an extraordinary writer and Hopscotch is destined to become a classic of the form.

    Donal Ryan
  • The best book I read last year. A heartbreaking story masterfully written.

    Paul Howard
  • Hilary Fannin carries the reader deep into the mind of a little girl baffled by the world around in her candid, intoxicating memoir . . . a lucid, crystalline and intoxicating style. Hopscotch tells a private story with candour and exactitude, love and understanding, artfulness and wit.

    Carlo Gebler, Irish Times
  • Hopscotch captures the joys, fears and bewilderments of a 1960s Dublin childhood through the wonderful prism of an innocent young girl’s puzzled attempts to navigate the muddy waters of her parents’ world. It is written with a deft sleight of hand that makes it wonderfully funny and moving.

    Dermot Bolger, Sunday Independent
