it was amazing
bookshelves: loved

I absolutely loved this book for its wonderful, moving writing and utterly believable characters, many of whom will stay with me long after the reading of their stories. I especially loved Tallulah's relationship with her grandmother. I love too that no-one is painted as all bad, they each have some redeeming qualities.

“People aren't all good, and people aren't all bad. We move in and out of darkness all our lives.”

Neal Shusterman, Unwind

A shoutout also to Simon Levy Associates for the beautiful cover.

Update, 7 July 2015:
I wrote the above back in May. Six or so weeks after finishing the novel, not only do I think it's still a wonderful debut, Tallie and her family have stayed with me and I find myself wanting to reread it (despite having many hundreds of "must read immediately" books lined up).

I'm also still loving the beautiful cover and am even planning on getting the paperback so that I can (gasp! sacrilege! remove the cover for framing). Go on, take a look, wouldn't that look lovely on the wall?
