Review

Although Red Ink is billed as a coming-of-age tale, it would be a pity for older readers to dismiss it. There are so many nuances and such precise observations that Red Ink transcends categorisation. I loved it... -- Hope Whitmore * Independent on Sunday * This is a brilliantly observed story of grief, sacrifice and redemption - and the unbreakable bond between mothers and daughters * Daily Mail * Red Ink is heart-breaking and ultimately uplifting. * We Love This Book * This is a wonderful book about the damage that lies and myths can ultimately do to a family and how the truth, though harsh, really can set you free. * The Bookseller Children's Bookseller's Choice: February * This beautifully-written coming-of-age story is at once heartbreaking, and full of robust humour and hopefulness. Shot through with black comedy, and with a fantastically frank and funny narrator in Melon, this challenging and uncompromising young adult novel interrogates family, identity, memory and the myths and superstitions we create for ourselves. Powerful, unusual and enormously compelling, Red Ink marks out Julie Mayhew as a young adult author to watch. * Booktrust Books We Like: February 2013 * Following her mother's sudden death 15-year-old Melon embarks on a journey of discovery in this darkly funny, emotionally raw coming-of-age debut. * The Bookseller Children's Bookseller's Choice: February * Melon's distinctive voice narrates events past and present and captures the gamut of emotions experienced by a teenager who loses her mother and has to find a new identity. * The Bookseller Children's Bookseller's Choice: February *

Although Red Ink is billed as a coming-of-age tale, it would be a pity for older readers to dismiss it. There are so many nuances and such precise observations that Red Ink transcends categorisation. I loved it... (Hope Whitmore Independent on Sunday)

This is a brilliantly observed story of grief, sacrifice and redemption - and the unbreakable bond between mothers and daughters (Daily Mail)

Red Ink is heart-breaking and ultimately uplifting. (We Love This Book)

This is a wonderful book about the damage that lies and myths can ultimately do to a family and how the truth, though harsh, really can set you free. (The Bookseller Children's Bookseller's Choice: February)

This beautifully-written coming-of-age story is at once heartbreaking, and full of robust humour and hopefulness. Shot through with black comedy, and with a fantastically frank and funny narrator in Melon, this challenging and uncompromising young adult novel interrogates family, identity, memory and the myths and superstitions we create for ourselves. Powerful, unusual and enormously compelling, Red Ink marks out Julie Mayhew as a young adult author to watch. (Booktrust Books We Like: February 2013)

Following her mother's sudden death 15-year-old Melon embarks on a journey of discovery in this darkly funny, emotionally raw coming-of-age debut. (The Bookseller Children's Bookseller's Choice: February)
