Reviews

  • "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."

  • "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."
