  • I loved Lowborn... A powerful exploration of Hudson's working-class childhood and its legacy

    David Nicholls, author of One Day
  • Elegant, compassionate and powerful… tells the hidden story of what it means to be poor in Britain today

    Charlotte Heathcote, Sunday Express
  • Compelling, fascinating and well-written, undeniably grim but peppered with humour and tenderness...Hudson demonstrates that only by lifting whole communities out of poverty...can we hope to avoid consigning children and young people like her – vulnerable and blameless – to the worst of lives

    Kit de Waal, Daily Telegraph
  • Lowborn is an insider’s view of the complexities of modern-day poverty, written with humour and compassion, but without judgement. It should be required reading for anyone who unknowingly believes poverty is a personal choice and that if you work hard enough you’ll avoid its fate… a fearless writer, an inspiring woman

    Jackie Annesley, Sunday Times
  • Lowborn is in part an indictment of a country that claims to still have a functioning welfare stateMost of all, it is a moving portrait of the survival and eventual flourishing of a remarkable spirit
