  • "Alexander effortlessly marries rap rhythms with plaintive, passionate and deceptively simple verse"

    Imogen Russell Williams, Guardian
  • "Designed to appeal to reluctant readers, little prevents the rest of us being caught up by the comic-mad Charlie Bell"

    Kitty Empire, Observer
  • "Alexander manages to distill huge emotions into punchy poems that leap off the page. Interspersed throughout with vibrant comic strips drawn by Dawud Anyabwile, this is an energetic and dynamic story that is full of heart."

  • "The poetry grabs you and just won't let you go, everyone must read this book."

    Emily Drabble, Books For Keeps - Books of the Year 2018
  • "Interspersed with amazing 'comic-strip' illustrations... The rhythm and pace of this verse novel pulls readers aged 11+ into Charlie's world."

    Best New Children's Books Guide, produced by the Publishers' Association and published in the Guardian 2018
