Reviews

"Completely engrossing. I'm sure it will get great reviews when it comes out, and it should be on shortlists." -- Linda Newbery "There is an almost Anne Frank quality about the thoughts and aspirations of young Jenny. A compelling read, [that] gives deep insights into the moral and physical disarray of a nation which has allowed itself to be hijacked by one of the greatest evils of our times." -- Jamila Gavin "It's a fascinating portrait of a place and of people who don't get written about very much and who are endlessly interesting: the rescuers." -- Adele Geras "Full of such horrible injustice cruelty, fear and grief - and told with such particularity and exactness - nailing every scene and shift of emotion - that it's painfully real and harrowing. I think it's a superb piece of writing. I'll be very surprised if it's not up for awards in the next year." -- Susan Price "Saving Rafael was a book I couldn't put down." -- Mary Hoffman
