This is a wonderful book, its different strands weaving around each other and coming together in the most fantastic conclusion. I am so jealous of David Whitehouse’s writing – his use of language is almost unfair
Whitehouse makes you feel what it's like to be 12 again: the obsessions, the fears, the boundless curiosity. Heartwarming and heartbreaking, sometimes in the space of one page
Powerful, eccentric . . . Whitehouse's writing is energetic and pacey, spiked with startling moments of tenderness and superbly controlled
Outlandishly clever, ingenious . . . There's no question that David Whitehouse is a writer to watch
