Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Anais Hendricks, the tough, fiery 15-year-old at the center of Fagan’s first novel, has grown up in the foster care system in England. Abandoned by her mother, who gave birth to her in a mental institution, Anais has been bounced around ever since the murder of Theresa, a compassionate prostitute and the only mother figure Anais has ever known. Anais is brought to the Panopticon, a halfway house for truant teens, after she’s accused of brutally beating a police officer and leaving her in a coma. Anais, who was hopped up on drugs at the time, can’t remember whether she’s guilty or not. The police are gunning for her, determined to send Anais to juvenile detention until she’s 18. At the Panopticon, Anais is convinced she’s being watched as part of a sinister experiment, the purpose of which, she believes, is to try to bring her down and all but eradicate her from society. Told in Anais’ raw voice, Fagan’s novel peers into the world inhabited by forgotten children, and, in Anais, gives us a heartbreakingly intelligent and sensitive heroine wrapped in an impossibly impenetrable exterior. Readers won’t be able to tear themselves away from this transcendent debut. --Kristine Huntley

Review

"It's in the Margaret Attwood/The Handmaid's Tale vein - very literary and suspenseful.Set in an altered reality - one that feels familiar and yet deeply unfamiliar, that embodies some of the dailiness of life, and yet slowly reveals itself to be a very different, much more sinister place." -- Gillian Flynn, author of GONE GIRL "Each page sparkles with the ebullient and sinister magic of great storytelling ... An utterly magnificent achievement." Irvine Welsh "Not just uncompromising and courageous. I think it's one of the most cunning and spirited novels I've read for years... An intelligent and deeply literary novel." -- Ali Smith "Written with great verve and brio ... An astonishing debut, I have a feeling that Fagan is a name we will hear more of." -- Jackie Kay "The 15-year-old heroine and narrator, has a rough, raw, joyous voice that leaps right off the page and grabs you by the throat.This punkish young philosopher is struggling with a terrible past, while battling sinister social workers.The glorious Anais is unforgettable." The Times
