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.
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
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
A chilling, blackly funny novel with a surreal edge about the intensity of teenage friendship.
