Product Description

Review

... always a page-turner but feels measured and adult as it grapples with Kirsty's insecurity. -- The Guardian, 4th April 2001

... stunning ... carries a powerful message of the dangers and potential mental damage caused by not accepting people as they really are. -- The School Librarian

Linda Newbery quietly gets under the skin of her teenage characters with her unshowy, insightful prose ... -- The Sunday Telegraph

Relationships are minutely and fascinatingly explored, with love and betrayal the pivotal emotions. -- Books for Keeps, July 2001

This is an intriguing story that could get anyone hooked. I recommend this book to teenagers of all ages. Jade Mitchell (aged 15) -- The English and Media Magazine

Format: Paperback
This book has so much to recommend it. It's unusual, full of atmosphere and the characters are terrific, especially Dally who must be one of the most interesting characters I've ever read about. It's a teenage book but I think a lot of adults would enjoy it too. Try it!

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.

I really enjoyed this book - and would recommend it to both YA and adult readers alike.

Without giving too much away, the scenes where Kirsty is dealing with her family and personal troubles are both poignant and compelling. And you really sense her vulnerability in the beautiful horses that she tries to protect. As the book progresses, you begin to have high hopes for her and Dally, but soon realise that things aren't as simple for him either.

I would also strongly recommend Newbery's The Shell House to anyone new to her books - as that story stayed with me for days after I had finished it.

Well written novel for teenagers although not for adults as some reviewers have suggested because the immaturity of the main characters shows.
