Review

Poignant, powerful, just perfect (Cathy Cassidy)

Succinct, with a gentle lyricism, the poems are telling about immigration, prejudice, self-delusion, families and first love, on the way to a life-changing conclusion (Sunday Times Book of the Week)

This poetic novel is sheer perfection - for adults as well as for teenagers. Being in Kasienka's head, the reader gains a new understanding of how alienation feels. I loved it (Irish Examiner)

A compellingly beautiful, utterly seductive debut novel . Do not miss it, and press it upon your friends and acquaintances (The Scotsman)

You've entered the young Polish girl's voice with a heartfelt conviction. I felt like I was watching a movie of her life in present time and at the same time sharing in what's happening inside her head. What I especially like is that nothing is overstated, but there are so many pregnant issues there - prejudice, migration, language bias - but what's so disarming and charming is the way the girl reveals her inner self with a poetic and resonant simplicity (John Agard) --This text refers to the paperback edition.
