Reviews

Peet's prose is both lyrical and unflinching -- Gillian Engberg * Booklist * In a vibrant modernisation of Othello, and with a strong South American setting, Exposure brilliantly explores the inequalities within society and the dangers of success * The Guardian * Exposure is a clever take on a passionate tragedy * The Guardian * ...the horrible consequences of jealousy are (all) sensitively explored in this headlong, gripping thriller -- Julia Eccleshare * The Guardian * Clever, funny, moving and superbly well written * The Times * ...Stunningly good, blending Othello with Brazilian football, celebrity culture and the lives of slum children in a mix of brilliance and compassion -- Amanda Craig * The Times * Peet's thrillers, with their blend of sport and homicide, are irrestistible to teenage boys, and this ambitious story is his best yet. -- Kate Saunders * The Telegraph * Peet's writing is slick, assured and sophisticated.... Exposure is a terrific teenage read -- Niall MacMonagle * The Irish Times * This compelling book encourages its teen audience to look at society and a not so beautiful side of the game. * The Ham & High *
