Masterfully narrated ... Powerful Diva Stunning ... Exhilarating Independent Prepare to be harrowed; I was sobbing by the end of the first chapter ... [Sapphire] writes with a burning anger that gives this novel an explosive power The Times A consummate work of art, style and brains, shining at times with the possibility for hope and joy ... More accomplished than [Push] and a thousand times more frightening List --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
