A well-drawn story of love, empathy and friendship * Candis *
I tore through it, alternating between rage and pain. In particular, Kaz (and Terry's) situation is explored with forensic authenticity - Linda has centred the experience of people so often treated as marginal in fiction * Shelley Harris, author of VIGILANTE *
Heart-rending and packed with emotion - a thought-provoking read * Rosanna Ley, author of THE LEMON TREE HOTEL *
Such a beautiful, careful, thoughtful, gorgeously-observed story, where the characters pulsated off the page. And oh, the finale... A breathtaking moment where I think my heart stopped. I cried and cried * Louise Beech, author of CALL ME STAR GIRL *
