Review:

`Magical, weird, wonderful, dark unique Northern brilliance' MATT HAIG '...there was so much about this book to love; the decrepit seaside setting, the terrible weather, the gritty realism, the magic, the freshness, the strangeness, and the way the story and the characters haunted me afterwards. I felt safe throughout this novel - I knew I was in good hands; with each change of voice and structure I remained confident in Smailes' ability to lead things to a satisfying conclusion. And that's exactly what she did' CARYS BRAY `This thoroughly modern retelling is everything a fairy tale should be: strange, beautiful and wholly unexpected' TANYA BYRNE `This beautifully told and sometimes disturbing tale will intrigue as it reaches its dramatic conclusion' Bella `I cannot compare this to anything I've ever read. You will fall in love with this book' EMMA BLACKERY `Someone should make this into a film' LUKEISNOTSEXY
