I couldn't put this insightful, compelling novel down
This wonderful story will tear at your heart
Loved this - a compassionate and very timely book about how we treat each other.
Will delight you but break your heart several times over
Touching and poignant. Really enjoyed this and found it hard to put down.
An original, poignant and heartwarming novel about urban connections and hidden histories. I loved the freshness of the writing and characterisation - eleven-year-old River, restless and vibrant, will really stay with me.
I defy you not to fall in love . . . a future classic
Might restore your faith in human nature
A fresh, moving and ultimately uplifiting story with a wonderfully drawn cast of characters who stayed with me long after I'd finished reading.
