You'll be hard pressed to find a better verse, or YA novel doing the rounds. At times it read like a thriller, a tale of first/romantic love and loss; it is beautifully brutal as it is heartfelt and devastating ... the book evokes that sense of excitement, awkwardness and heartache of first love. * Brian Conaghan *
The novel explores emotional abuse in relationships, but where the young man is the victim - a story rarely told. This is a tense and pacey read, and like Joe, the reader is swept along in the speed of the story and struggles to fully compute the magnitude of Joe's experience. -- Hannah Sycamore * The Scotsman *
After reading Wrecked, I am the title. Ate it up in one gulp because I couldn't look away. Tragic, compelling, real, and beautifully written. * Teri Terry *
