Product description


'Fayette Fox's first novel, published by the reliably excellent Myriad Editions, is a quirky, charming debut, and Ivy's perspective is beautifully captured.' - The Independent

'With sharp, witty prose and an utterly endearing and sympathetic heroine, The Deception Artist is a story that draws you in and has you rooting for its central character as if she were your eight-year-old self.' - Stylist: Emerald Street

'The characters in this novel are wonderfully brought to life, with both the children and adults being credibly voiced throughout. A captivating debut, and hopefully the first of many books from Fayette Fox.' - We Love This Book

'The Deception Artist is told from Ivy's perceptive and I loved being inside her eight-year-old mind. Ivy is artistic and has a fantastic imagination but she is also easily confused, which leads some great laugh-out-loud moments.' Novelicious

'A funny and heartwarming novel which looks at the life of a typical Northern Californian family in the 1980's recession through the eyes of an imaginative, adorable eight-year old. Ivy is one of the most beautifully sweet and intelligent children I ve had the pleasure of reading. I definitely would have been friends with her if she'd gone to my school. I found Fayette Fox's writing delicious to read.' - Bookhugger

'Ivy is a brilliant character and Fox writes her perspective incredibly naturally. The Deception Artist is a very impressive debut. All the characters are complicated but overall sympathetic. Apart from anything else, a reader can't help but fall for Ivy.' - The Bookbag

'The Deception Artist reminds us that the real truths are in how we love each other.' - The Simple Things Magazine

'Ivy is one of the brightest, funniest and intelligent little characters I've read in a while. Good luck, Ivy, may you paint your life vividly across many more imaginations.' - Pamreader

'The Deception Artist was a very sweet little book...the chapters are short and punchy...and I was fully captivated by Ivy and her point of view of the goings on with her family. I loved this book.' - The London Diaries

'This is a superb debut. Fox's pacing and plotting are perfect, and I happily whizzed through it in a few days, unable to tear myself away. It's the perfect summer read and Fayette Fox is definitely one to watch.' - --Becca Likes Books
