"Novels for young teenagers do not usually feature drugs and casual sex within the first 20-odd pages. But most books for teenagers will not leave an adult reader's eyes so blurry with tears that it's hard to see the final chapters. Jenny Downham's extraordinary first novel does both" * The Sunday Times *
"Tough but tender, angry rather than resigned, Tessa is an appealing heroine whose company is never less than bracing" -- Nicholas Tucker * Independent *
"This is an affecting and brave novel. Tessa is such a rich character . . . For everyone, it is a reminder to value the people that matter, seize the moment, wish with courage, adventure with relish, even if it's just a trip to the swimming pool, drinking hot chocolate or driving down a dual carriageway in the rain" * Guardian *
"Destined to drive hundreds of thousands of readers to tears and to swift injunctions to all their friends to read it" * Observer *

Don't know how anyone can give this a negative review! I found the book to be so difficult to put down and so emotional in parts that I actually cried! I would like to read more of Jenny Downham's books.
