Yasmin would give anything to have a friend... and do anything to keep one.
The first time I saw you, you were standing at the far end of the playing field. You were looking down at your brown, straggly dog, but then you looked up, your mouth going slack as your eyes clocked her. Alice Taylor. I was no different. I used to catch myself gazing at the back of her head in class, at her silky, fair hair swaying between her shoulder blades.
If you'd glanced just once across the field, you'd have seen me standing in the middle on my own, looking straight at you, and you'd have gone back through the trees to the path quick, tugging your dog after you. You'd have known you'd given yourself away, even if only to me.
But you didn't. You had eyes only for Alice. Sue Townsend meets Zoë Heller in this dark, twisted, and heartbreakingly vulnerable tale.
"A striking and highly enjoyable debut." (Sophie Hannah)

Thoroughly enjoyed - and never listening to it again!
Katy Sobey catches the narrator's voice perfectly. An oh-so-ordinary teenage near singsong which adds to the novel's chill, the steady, unvarying pace of which drives the listener mad as it jogs towards the story's end.
Shock. I originally bought this audiobook to have something to listen to while I knit during my journey to and from work. I really wasn't expecting what I got. At the end of the book I sat on the top deck of the no. 341 bus, gazing unseeingly out of the window, my knitting a complete tangle in my lap. I'm undoing the entire ruddy jersey at the moment!
A heartbreaking, twisty tale of the unexpected. I shall be watching this writer's career with interest and picking up her future books with some trepidation...
A deeply dangerous love
