  • "The diary is slight, but very sweet. You would be pleased to find it in your Christmas stocking… Margaret is a good egg. You like her more and more… If you were happy at school, Forster’s diary will bring it all back. If you were unhappy, she will make you wistful for what you missed."

    Laura Freeman, The Times
  • "Unmissable: a neat little green clothbound time machine"

    Libby Purves, Times Literary Supplement
  • "Funny, acute and revealing by turns... a tantalising, nostalgia-inducing glimpse into a young life and a lost world"

    Lettie Kennedy, Guardian
  • "A heady mix of bookish teenage passions and 1950s nostalgia"
