Reviews for The Boy on the Bridge

Carey writes with compassion and fire - strange and surprising and humane As fresh as it is terrifying . . . It left me sighing with envious joy Haunting, heartbreaking If you only read one novel this year, make sure it's this one - it's amazing Complex,heartbreaking, hopeful and intelligently written . . . Enigmatic and utterly gripping Original, thrilling and powerful Takes hold of you and doesn't let go Scary, tense and fast-paced . . . but with a heart-warming tenderness
