Product description

Review

It's painful to see how Kieran is treated, but heart-warming when people realise what he is capable of and how he doesn't hold the prejudices against other people as most of us might do. Smart leaves you with the hope that this realisation will extend beyond Kieran and will soon become a part of everyday life (transatlanticbibliophilia.blogspot.co.uk)

Altogether this is an amazing, enthralling and enticing debut. (Amadillo Magazine)

This is a book that will make you more aware of others' needs, and to pay attention to life because you never know when you'll have information or skills that can help someone else. (nayusreadingcorner.blogspot.co.uk)

The style of writing is pure genius. (Guardain Peer Review theguardian.com)

For me this book is all about the things that go unsaid. (overflowinglibrary.com)

Kieran is very brave, in fact he is the bravest of everyone in the whole story, even though he is the one with special needs and does not fully understand the way people work. He is also smart -he knows how to make use of his talents, he knows when something is wrong and he tells the right people. Good always overcomes evil. (scribblesbookreviews.blogspot.co.uk)

Kim was a guest on the Wondrous Reads blog on Friday, talking about the influence of Art on Smart. It was a very interesting article, touching on Lowry and how his art reflected the changes in his life and well worth a read! (wondrousreads.com)

Smart is a fearless debut from Kim Slater that is written with great care and beauty. There are also a lot of tough topics covered with great sensitivity. Smart is funny, chilling, moving, emotional and also hard to read at times because of Kieran's suffering. (fictionfascination.blogspot.co.uk)

I think fans of thoughtful contemporaries will be really impressed by this debut. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more from Kim Slater! (thebookbag.co.uk)

I enjoyed reading this book and have already started to bug people I know to read it. (rachelsweirdness.blogspot.co.uk)
