Review:

Dazzling, chilling, breathtaking. A perfect book. -- Meg Rosoff, award-winning author of HOW I LIVE NOW The outstanding teenage novel of the autumn, arresting and original and written in a singular voice... -- Lorna Bradbury * The Telegraph * startlingly original, horribly gripping ... an inspirational [story] which deserves many prizes. -- Amanda Craig * The Times * This novel is a celebration of the refusal of the human spirit to be crushed and in Standish, Gardner has created a hero to be cherished. -- Sally Morris * Daily Mail * ... a unique and compelling read * The Bookseller (Children's Booksellers' Choice: September) * Maggot Moon is a fast-paced, tough and heartbreaking story. I loved it * We Love This Book * ... Maggot Moon is an unusual, deeply moving and thought-provoking story, which has clear potential to become a modern classic * Booktrust's 'September book we like' * ... a remarkable novel * Books for Keeps * This novel will just blow you away -- Emma Louise Pennell * Waterstones Chichester * a story that is rich in drama and ideas -- Julia Eccleshare * Lovereading4kids * Quite simply, it is a book you have to read. * Bookbag * Fans of the dystopia genre and conspiracy theorists alike will be flipping the pages of this gem. The story moves at a gripping pace with clever use of language, providing vivid characterization ad setting, while the unexpected twists in the plot will leave readers stunned * Recommended Reads, Children's Books Ireland * [Standish's] use of language because of (not despite of) his dyslexia is idiosyncratic poetry, full of fizzing wordplay and deadpan humour. Gardner's novels have always been thought-provoking but she flexes her writing muscles here and Standish is an utterly unique creation, impossible not to love. * The Scotsman *
