'Rarely has a child narrator been written so convincingly, and with so much obvious (and deserved) affection from its author - Though this is a novel slender in form, it's a hugely sating read. It speaks of family (truthfully), of loss (sensitively), of growing up (tenderly, beautifully). Compelling, beautiful and poetic, this is a book to get utterly lost in.' - Bookgroup Info 'A book of heat, loss, wit and aching tenderness.' Tim Crouch 'A moving and recognisable exploration of a family struggling to manage and openly process the death of a mother... stranded in a foreign land both literally and metaphorically Indy is left to construct her own version of the truth. Beautifully paced... compelling but never sentimental.' Karen Rose, Sweet Talk Productions 'Sensitively written, this is a heart rending tale of a young girl trying to make sense of her life while accepting loss and change.' We Love This Book 'In tone and content I could compare it to Nathan Filer's The Shock of the Fall... Alarm Girl is a subtle and yet powerful novel.' - --Writer's Hub: Ten Books To Read 'Beautifully written, the heat and landscapes of South Africa leap off the page as Indy's story unfolds.' - Bella Magazine 'An assured exposition of grief, belonging and the nature of self. Convincing characterisation and strong evocations of South Africa and suburban Britain conspire to turn a simple tale into a book which lingers in the mind.' - Sussex Life
