Review

Terrific. A poignant, brave and important book. (S J WATSON, author of Before I Go to Sleep)

A gripping read. [Tarttelin] is a natural storyteller. (Matt Haig METRO)

A warmly human coming-of-age story... [Max's] desperate search for identity is gripping, emotionally engaging, and genuinely unforgettable, as, indeed, is this accomplished first novel. (BOOKLIST (USA))

a coming-of-age story worth seeking out from a young author widely tipped for great things (DIVA)

I knew I was really into this when I missed my stop on the bus! It's about gold-star pupil, Max, and his MP dad, who have to deal with a hidden family secret surfacing. (COMPANY)

If a book with literary ambition should both inform and entertain, as well as make you see the world in a different way, if only slightly, then Tarttelin has certainly achieved that. (Peter Raynard LITRO)

An original read about a young person in an extraordinary situation... Unlike anything you will have read before... Brave, unique and utterly compelling. This is a book that will certainly make you think about life. (HEAT MAGAZINE)

Tarttelin broaches the topic of intersexuality bravely, describes the crimes committed against Max intensely, and evokes his ensuing emotions poignantly. A highly praised new author, her fresh, modern approach and contemporary writing style result in an inimitably of-the-moment novel which is beautifully matter-of-fact, eloquently meditative and fearlessly action-packed, all at once. (WE LOVE THIS BOOK)

Golden Boy is an undeniably one of the most incredible books I have ever read...Such an important novel, one I wish everyone would read, one I feel should be read in schools. It's perfect, and I am so, so glad I've had the opportunity to read it. (www.onceuponabookcase.co.uk)

An astonishingly good novel covering a rarely touched topic. (SO SO GAY)

Unlike anything you will have read before... Brave, unique and utterly compelling. This is a book that will certainly make you think about life. (HEAT MAGAZINE)

Book Description

The truth will out in this gritty, cool and brilliantly compelling novel from one of the hippest young authors around.
