Product description

Review

Bedford's taut style and psychological insight make Flip a gripping thriller. -- Amanda Craig * The Times * ...a brilliant, engrossing, thought provoking, psychological thriller that was impossible to put down. The key to the novel's ability to enthral lies in the way in which the author has somehow managed to identify the teenage psyche and capture the voice of one with shocking realism. * www.thebookbag.co.uk * Interview with author. * Keighley News * It's a well-worn cliche that teenagers sometimes feel they're in someone else's body, and Bedford has followed this idea to its logical conclusion in his tale of a lad called Alex, who ends up in the body of a boy called Flip, whose parents give new meaning to the phrase `dysfunctional family'. It's an unusual idea and Bedford, a former sub-editor with The Oxford Times who has five adult novels under his belt, has executed it with consummate skill in his first book for young adults. * The Oxford Times * The story is fast paced and the reasons for the swap were great, it was done in a different way to any I've seen before but again I'm not going to give any hints so you'll have to read the book to find out more. I'd definitely recommend Flip if you're looking for something a bit different and I'm looking forward to seeing what Martyn Bedford comes up with in the future. * Feeling Fictional * A unique story which will definietly keep it's readers absorbed. * Ink Pellet * This is an absorbing book which makes you think a little differently. * Books For Keeps * Flip is such a brilliant idea, and really well executed...Nothing is glossed over or fudged: by the end I almost believed it could really happen (actually, I did believe it could happen whilst I was reading the book). Every practicality is dealt with - girlfriends, Alex's complete lack of ability in sports at which Flip excels, and there are also moments of excruciating horror; the idea of being forcibly ejected from your own life, but not actually dead, is terrifying when you look at it closely. Able to see your friends and family but never recognised by them, never able to really go home. Flip raises all sorts of labyrinthine questions about what it really means to be yourself. -- Katy Moran * http://katymoran.co.uk/book-review-blog/ * Gripping! * Ham and High * A riveting psychological thriller * Woman's Way *
