    " I really enjoyed this book and didn't want to have to put it down or for it to end. The storyline really drew me in and kept my attention I've had this for a while now as my son bought I for me for Mothers Day last year but I had only just got round to it. The style is very different from The Chocolate Run but I thought it was a better read then that as the storyline was much more interesting. Best one so far for me. "

    " This was the first book I've ever read by Dorothy Koomson and I have to say I was completely hooked after the first chapter. Probably before that. Totally intriguing and I'm definitely glad I read it! "

    " I was in the mood for a "page turner" and this fitted the bill perfectly. A really good read and I found myself caring about the two main characters. The only criticism is that its rather far fetched and often I found myself saying "oh come on!!" out loud because it just isn't realistic and I couldn't imagine events could escalate as they did when both girls had loving families. But if you just wnat a good read (and some pretty interesting psychological insights) I would highly recommend this book. "

    " I really enjoyed this book, my only gripe is that I guessed the ending when I was only half way through the book. Great read though, another page turner from Dorothy Koomson. "

    " From the title and cover I thought this would be a light, frothy read. Wrong! The lives of two young girls are changed forever by a 'friend'. The story in places is both disturbing and sad. A surprisingly good story! "

    " I really enjoyed this. Dorothy Koomson has an easy reading style but which makes you think about the subject. Think Jodie Picoult but maybe not quite as researched. A fabulous read and now looking for more by her. "

    " Found this to be much grittier than the fluffy cover led me to believe it would be. The author wrote convincingly about her subject material, she must have done her research. I was certainly very impressed. It was a real page turner! "

    " Really quite impressed by the depth of this book, especially in comparison to the other book I've read by this author - My Best Friend's Girl. Kept me guessing "whoddunit" right til the end. "
