Subtle, gripping and moving.,
This review is from: The Damage Done (Kindle Edition)
This is a brilliant YA book - thoughtful, beautifully written and poignant. The relationships and characters are precisely and intelligently drawn, and the narrative is compelling without being gimmicky. There is real menace in the situation, and real romance - but both are subtle and come from the quality of the prose, without being overdone or cloying.
Linda Newbery's YA books are always exceptional, and this one is a real gem.
