A Very Favourite,
This review is from: The Tulip Touch (Paperback)
The concept of what is evil has always been of interest to me. I find the idea that someone can be evil and someone else is not when we are all brought up in the same world fascinating. This is the central idea for Anne Fine's children's/teen novel.
Natalie is new at school and makes friends with Tulip - but Tulip isn't all she seems. Okay, a lame sum up but you've read other reviews and know what this book is about.
The story is so simply told and it is a simple storyline. Nothing is sensationalised, it is all very gentle. The ending is just perfect too, it's just what I wanted.
This is a bittersweet novel that appears to be just a kid's book with nothing but light entertainment to offer but it is so much more than that. It still affects me now. Get it!
