"An extraordinary book, and truly is Malorie Blackman at her best" Guardian "Blackman's emotional intelligence is such that Boys Don't Cry should be read aloud in every secondary school ...

I vote she becomes the next Children's Laureate" -- Amanda Craig The Times "Her writing at its best, creating characters and a story which, once read, will not easily go away" -- Nick Tucker Independent
