  • "Gray has a sure-footed understanding of the adolescent mind (so much so that I often winced in pleasurable recognition) and creates a gripping, smoothly executed psychodrama... I genuinely could not stop reading this: a treat for teens and above."

    Philip Womack, Literary Review
  • "Julia Gray’s impressive, Patricia Highsmith inspired Little Liar... puts readers into the hands of the ultimate unreliable narrator for a story that never lets you stay too long on stable ground - it’s nail-biting stuff."

    Waterstones Children's Summer Reading Round-Up

    Fiona Noble, The Bookseller
  • "Julia Gray’s second novel is a superb psychological thriller with a distinctive voice, a clever blend of contemporary realism and classic noir."

    Claire Hennessy, Inis Reading Guide
  • "Julia Gray has created an immensely powerful psychological thriller which challenges our whole understanding of behaviour and warns against passing judgement"

    Andrea Reece, Lovereading

    Anna McKerrow
  • "Smart, gripping and sharply-observed YA, with a pitch-perfect narrative voice."

    Katherine Woodfine
  • "Another wildly inventive, thrillingly unreliable narrator from the immeasurably talented Julia Gray. Full of twists and turns this story leaves you wondering who is telling the tallest story. A great novel about truth and lies and what we need to believe to stay alive."

    Julia Bell
