Ashworth's novel is bleak and gritty, painting an uncompromising portrait of teenage life... In the best possible way this novel is an uncomfortable read.
That most uncommon delight - a literary page-turner.
Haunting...it is told by the hand of a true storyteller.
Award-winning Jenn Ashworth leavens a bleak but pacey story with dry, wry humour, resulting in an extraordinarily perceptive and beautifully written novel
A psychological thriller of the first order.
A wonderful tale, beautifully told.
Remember teenage bitching and insecurity? This book will take you back there, except with more lies and gruesome murder. Scarily believable.
a chilling, blackly funny novel with a surreal edge about the intensity of teenage friendship.
Another cleverly skewed tale told from the self-conscious perspective of an outsider... arrestingly observant... Ashworth's second book confirms that the first was no one-off... her talent could take her a long way
