Reviews

"This exceptional debut novel is a warm, often funny dramatisation of the balance between anxious love and worthwhile risk" * Sunday Times *
"A master of his environment, Christie is also deft at inhabiting the mind of a child in his writing ... powerful and page-turning ... A first novel that is complex, symbolic and a little bit wondrous." * Sunday Business Post *
"A captivating debut novel" * Scotsman *
"An astonishing piece of work. Christie combines lyrical prose and true-to-life characters-and skateboarding-to craft a remarkable tale of mothers and sons, and what it means to grow up." -- Philipp Meyer, author of The Son
"There are moments of real tenderness, and real strangeness too, as Will gradually embraces risk and seeks friendship. It feels less part of some sub-genre cooked up by the marketing department than a contribution to a real, archetypal literary tradition, that of the coming-of-age story." * Spectator *
