Mary Borsellino wrote the five-book The Wolf House vampire series, which I love. It's full of horror, cruelty, compassion, love, art and rock music. The Devil's Mixtape is her newest book, and it has all the power, passion, razorblade insights and sometimes shock value of her vampire novel, condensed into a single volume. Mary Borsellino does not choose safe, easy subjects - or protagonists - but she grabs everything in two fists and propels you to places you never saw coming. The other writer who most recently made me feel like this was Suzanne Collins in The Hunger Games trilogy

The Devil's Mixtape has three interwoven stories, all about fierce women who do not even pretend to play nice. The very first chapter throws you right into the deep end with letters from a girl named Ella Vrenna. Ella once led a shooting spree at an American high school, and died at the end of it. She's in Hell, writing letters to her little sister, now a grown woman and a rock star.

The second thread of stories follows Sally, a part aboriginal teenager, travelling across Australia with Amy, who isn't really a girl. The third thread is told in excerpts from a book, in which rock journalist Charlotte interviews the band HUSH on the road. The members of the band are all linked, in some way, to the Ella, Sally and Amy.

Those are the bare bones of it, but the layers of storytelling and theme are so rich, deep and varied that I can't begin to cover them all. But I'm going to give it a shot.

There's a lot in here about identity. Ella is no longer her whole self but reduced to `ellavrenna', her full name always spoken in a breath, made a monster by a monstrous act and losing the rest of who she was in the process.

This story is something that everyone who remembers their teenage years needs to read.

Every character is drawn beautifully; you may not agree with or like them, but you can understand their motivations and backgrounds, why they are the way they are. They danced off the page and reminded me of my past. They are loveable, flawed and human (even the ones that aren't). Some are broken and fixed with duct-tape, and I can relate to them all and I love them all. I love the girl that went on a school killing spree - she's full of anger and sadness and is just a teenage girl who never wanted to grow up; Peter Pan Syndrome at its worst.

The matter is dark and gritty, disturbing in some points. The plot is wonderfully structured - you only see bits of the whole, and then the door opens and you see the whole thing, and oh my god. It's dark and dirty and bitter and sweet and heartbreaking and real, so very real. It made me cry and feel all the feelings i could ever feel.

This is a love letter to Australia - all it's been and all it can be. It's a love letter to the confusing horror of adolescence. It's a promise that although everything might not be okay, you will get through it. It's fond memories of touring bands, and it's an explanation of why humans do what they do.

This author has reminded me what it was like to be a teenager, and told me that what I felt was okay. You're never alone.

There's something about Mary Borsellino's twisted and sharp style of writing that touches at the dark, honest thing located deep inside every reader's ribs. The imagery in The Devil's Mixtape is breathtaking, the characters raw and spellbinding with the intensity that they tell their story, and the story is so tightly wound up on itself that you won't be able to put it down until you've uncovered every mystery.

This book seamlessly blends its themes of violence, queer identity, and teenage sexuality with its richly-layered Australian history and even a hint of the occult. But the most important thing about The Devil's Mixtape is how brilliantly it tells the stories of its women: each of them have a spark and a vital fury and voice that will be instantly and achingly familiar to anyone who's ever felt lost.

I cannot recommend this book enough. It is pure genius.

The Devil's Mixtape absorbed me like few books ever have. The voices in it are immediate and instantly engaging. I could hardly stop reading, and even though the conclusion was as perfect as could be and the threads came together while still leaving the world of the novel open and rich, I wish I could have gone on reading - though I don't know if I could ever get anything else done again if that were an option.

It's horror, yes, but horror with hope of continuity even beyond the most drastic decisions we make, and love and pride and art, all of which can be used to carve a home for yourself in a violent world.

Mary Borsellino, author of The Wolf House, has done it again. I stayed up till the wee hours, unwilling to put this book away until I had finished every last word.
Mary is very skilled at writing flawed, engaging characters who also come across as incredibly human (quite a trick when not all of them are).

I love the character of Ella, even thought I don't think I'm supposed to. After all, high-school spree-killers aren't supposed to be the characters you like hearing about. But her story, on of (somewhat) regretful confession to her sister, is a fascinating look into the mind of a frustrated teenager. While not condoning it, you can maybe understand why she did it.

I love they way Mary writes. Her characters are always engaging and complex, and they are all connected in ways you just don't suspect until it whacks you in the face (and then you have to sob into your fist at 1am in order to not wake the rest of the house).

I was honoured to get a sneak peek at her new novel and I cannot wait to see where else Mary's writing takes her.
