Publisher Review

A frighteningly believable story, a real page-turner... * Emily Drabble (quote from Little Rebels judge Wendy Cooling), The Guardian * "Cross, who has won both the Carnegie and the Whitbread, is an expert storyteller: her plotting is seamless; her prose is supple and economical; she creates characters you care for, and depicts a world so plausible you can smell it..." * The Guardian (Online-Teen Books) * "Award-winning author Gillian Cross once again delivers an exciting read in this intriguing twist on the dystopian teen novel...Thought-provoking and gripping, this page turner will hold the attention of young adults and readers alike." * * "Cross, a clear, intelligent writer, demonstrates the quiet power of work and the pleasures of community..." * Literary Review * "...a thought-provoking and topical novel by an accomplished writer." * The School Librarian * "...a really good novel." * Armadillo Magazine * "...uncompromising and strong..." * Books For Keeps * 'A harrowing survival thriller from the Carnegie Medal winner, set in a near-future bankrupted Britain that feels only too plausible.' * The Bookseller * 'A real sense of accumulating menace - genuine danger, which is rare. I love how the story is so often catapulted forward by good, rich dialogue, and there were times I was genuinely shuddering in that all-too-plausible world, and aching for characters I really came to care about. What an achievement!' * Andy Mulligan, author of Trash * 'A fast-moving, incredibly exciting read. And what grips you most is that the story is scarily plausible. Highly recommended.' * Malorie Blackman *
