'Probably the best YA novel I've ever read, and that's a strong statement to make' - Emma Blackery; 'I'd recommend this book to anyone and everyone' - Beth Reekles, YA author (The Kissing Booth); 'The banter & bitchiness is UTTERLY ADDICTIVE' - Non Pratt, YA author (Trouble); Full of wisdom, heartache, and honesty, this tops John Green in my book' - Never judge a book by its cover blog; 'Tackles issues like peer pressure, bullying and self-harm, but so very readable' - Bookseller Children's Buyers Guide; 'Very much in tune with her audience, this second novel from Holly has characters that readers will relate to and remember long after reading the last page' - Lovereading4kids; 'Holly Bourne has written an intriguing and well-written YA novel that keeps you turning the pages and is a meaner Mean Girls of sorts' - Booktrust; 'One of the most honest voices I've ever read in YA contemporary fiction' - Books for YA; 'Bourne is a prodigiously talented author who has the gift of making fiction seem real' - Lancashire Evening Post; 'Hard to put down' - School Librarian; 'Definitely a book with a few lessons to teach us and although it is aimed at a female audience there are many things that teen boys could learn as well. It really makes you think about the world our young people are growing up in' - Books for Keeps; 'Poor Bree's plan sounds like a disaster waiting to happen and I just want to scream at her 'BE YOURSELF'. Unfortunately though, life isn't that easy and I know it sounds horrid but I can't wait to read her struggles!' - The Reader Ramblings; 'As you'd expect this book is witty and clever. I quickly connected with Bree and was chuckling away after a few pages... I loved that this wasn't a purely happy or sad book but a messy realistic in between - much like life really' - Jess Hearts Books
