Reviews

A gripping, personal tale of fame and misfortune * BBC Radio 2 *
Dawson has a gift for writing believable teenagers characters, and Meat Market is a powerful counterweight to light-hearted literature that still portrays modelling as the stuff of dreams * The Guardian *
Juno Dawson slashes through the glamour of the fashion industry ... combining blockbuster appeal with piercing commentary on modelling, body image and consent * The Observer *
Well-researched and hard-hitting, the novel doesn't skimp on the glamour but neither does it skirt the darker side of fashion * Financial Times *
An unflinching expose of the darker side of fashion * i newspaper *
A compelling story with an important - and timely - message * S Magazine (Sunday Express) *
Having worked as a journalist on the fringes of the fashion industry, Dawson started to realise there were problems - namely, models were often very young, nameless and simply bodies who were not treated well by those around them. Meat Market is a gripping page-turner, an expose of the dark and often seedy side of the industry, addressing timely themes around #MeToo and #TimesUp. * The Independent *
Juno Dawson is one of the hottest writers of young adult fiction and non-fiction in the UK right now * Bustle *

Honest, raw, this timely expose is essential post-#MeToo reading * Image *
Meat Market shines a probing spotlight on the fashion industry, exposing its dark underbelly with a frankness that's refreshing. Yet what makes this such a compelling and timely read is how Dawson balances the ugliness with humour and heart without being moralistic * Culturefly *
It's a totally compelling and compulsive read * WRD magazine *
In an era of #MeToo and #TimesUp, this is an important read * Woman's Way *
Juno Dawson covers topics applicable and of interest to Young Adult readers with honesty and realism * NB Magazine *
There is something incredibly genuine about this novel in its depiction of the beauty trade's ugly side. . . Dawson manages to make Jana's story feel timely and universal without ever straying into cliche * The F Word *
Intoxicating * Tortoise *
