Cleverly written full of suspense and tension * Supermum *
Superbly crafted... I was awestruck at how impressively the whole plot is drawn together. * Armadillo Magazine *
It makes you question yourself as an adult, regarding the comments and actions you make and I believe will be even more so with a YA reader. A very emotional and thought provoking read. * Reading Zone *
There's plenty of clever misdirection, with Cloke holding back the all-important fact of who carried out the shooting for longer than I would have believed possible. This is a story of how friendship are made - and how they can be so easily broken. I was thoroughly engrossed in the lives of the teenagers, as the book hurtled towards the tragedy that had been signalled at the very start. But in the tradition of the classic Greek tragedies, it's not what happens that matters, it's how it happens that holds the audience entranced. Close Your Eyes is a book that will worm its way under your skin. You'll laugh with the group and ultimately cry with them, and like them, you'll wonder what could have been done to prevent the tragedy that gradually but inexorably unfolds. * Crime Review *
