A tense, gripping and beautifully written rites-of-passage story.
A traumatic family life.
A brand new school.
A boy. A knife. A war of nerves.
A dark and tragic turn of events.
A good clean edge.
an absolutely marvellous book... young adult readers will really appreciate the stylishness of this novel just as much as they appreciate the social themes and the thriller aspect of the murder story in its latter stages. - TheBookbag.co.uk
A fascinating read. - School Librarian
