"Engrossing . . . an extremely promising debut"
Guardian||"A stunning coming-of-age story with a gripping Australian outback setting and a strong and interesting plot. A debut novel to look out for."
Lovereading||"Lewis adds a cast of striking local characters and a convincing knowledge of life in the outback. This is a debut coming of age novel that exudes a raw reality reflected in the language and in prevailing attitudes to Aborigines, Pommies, women and what constitutes a real man. It will well repay attention from male teen readers and makes Ali Lewis one to watch."
Books for Keeps||"A harsh but beautiful coming-of-age story with a sweeping cinematic feel...a cracking debut."
The Scotsman||"Gripping and realistic . . . an outstandingly strong first novel."
