A wonderful, captivating writer * Daily Telegraph * Meg Rosoff has the gift of being able to talk to the reader with a directness that goes like an arrow to the heart * The Times * No one writes the way Rosoff does - as if she's thrown away the rules. I love her fizzy honesty, her pluck, her way of untangling emotion through words * Daily Telegraph * It is only occasionally that a writer comes along with a voice so stridently pure and direct and funny that you simply can't question it - you tumble willingly into its thrall -- Julie Myerson * Guardian * A wonderfully original voice * New Statesman * A magical and utterly faultless voice * Mark Haddon * Searingly well written, her books read like Samuel Beckett on Ecstasy * The Times * Like Ephron, Rosoff has a lightness of touch, and is also a clever comic writer: her dialogue is sharp, her characters keenly observed and ruthlessly well realised * The Sunday Times * The perfect read for an afternoon by the sea * NetGalley user * An irresistible summer read * NetGalley reviewer * I have never connected with a book so quickly. The atmosphere and the heady setting of summer and nostalgic longing was enticing from the first page... my heart was swept away with this book * NetGalley reviewer * I genuinely couldn't put it down * NetGalley reviewer * A thoroughly captivating read that reels you in and won't let you go * NetGalley Reviewer *
