Reviews

One broke my heart and mended it, all at the same time. Beautiful, moving story about an unbreakable bond and an immense love - ONE of my ALL time favourite books!
Cecelia Ahern, author of PS, I Love You||The best book I've read in years. It's a spectacular testament to love. It blows your head back
Katherine Rundell, author of Rooftoppers||Every word in Sarah Crossan's One feels precisely chosen, each sentence crafted, page after page resonates with exact observation and lyrical awareness. So, how come it has space and light in it too? How does it manage to be a page turner and also leave room for the reader to imagine beyond the story? Perhaps, because it's written by a very good writer indeed. I urge you to read this book. Seduction guaranteed
Jenny Downham, author of Before I Die||A beautiful and moving exploration of a sibling relationship like no other, One will stay with you long after the final page.
Lisa Williamson, author of The Art of Being Normal||Read, think, enjoy and weep, because the novel is quite simply an achingly sad and beautiful story about what makes any of us human
Telegraph||Truly remarkable
Irish Times||This is a strikingly brave, sensitive and unusual book that packs such a powerful emotional punch, I defy anyone not to weep at the end
Daily Mail||An inspiring and beautiful book
Irish Examiner||Poignant, powerful, just perfect
Praise for THE WEIGHT OF WATER - Cathy Cassidy||Succinct, with a gentle lyricism, the poems are telling about immigration, prejudice, self-delusion, families and first love, on the way to a life-changing conclusion
Praise for THE WEIGHT OF WATER - The Sunday Times Children's Book of the Week||Exquistely and touchingly written
Praise for THE WEIGHT OF WATER - Irish Times||Unreliable adults, complex friendships and family ties are explored with sensitivity in this finely crafted story
Praise for APPLE AND RAIN - The Bookseller||It will make you laugh and cry ...
Praise for APPLE AND RAIN - Company||A story of the redeeming power of love. It's beautifully written and it made me cry but it also made me laugh
Praise for APPLE AND RAIN - The Bookbag||This poignant, realistic tale is about learning to love and taking responsibility, and how poems can tell the truth .
Praise for APPLE AND RAIN - The Sunday Times, Children's Book of the Week
