Reviewed in the United States on October 8, 2017
It wasn’t the plot that sucked me in; the action only really gets going in the last third anyhow. It was the characters, and most of all the voice of the first-person MC, Jenny. Luckily she’s not too hard to describe; if you’ve read Dodie Smith’s I Capture the Castle or Jo Walton’s Among Others, and liked their narrators, that’s who she feels like to me. Though Tamsin, Meena, Julian and Mr Cat are worth the price of the ticket too, and it’s always pleasant to read YA where the parents are neither completely oblivious nor idiots, who step in when needed but give a teenager some space to be herself.
