Friday, 21 March 2014
GENRE: Contemporary/Issues
PAGES: 352
PUBLISHER: Chicken House
FORMAT: Hardback
BUY IT: Unavailable
RATING: 4 Stars

This review refers to an uncorrected advance edition. It will be released in August 2014 and is available to preorder for a £3 deposit.

Two teens are drawn together, trapped by the expectations of their dreaming mothers. One is sweet and empathetic, the other brilliant and charismatic - but damaged. A beautiful and twisted story of first love.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this novel, and it kept surprising me throughout. Sphinxie is a great character, really different to a lot of female leads in YA at the minute, and the situation she finds herself in is told in a captivating way. It really is the kind of book to read in one sitting as you'll be desperate to know how it finishes. 

I can't really say a lot without giving away any plot points, but I will say I thoroughly enjoyed it, and the fact it was unlike anything I'd read before made me like it even more!
