Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Sharp and knowing and funny.” Sunday Times (London)
“Part thriller, part fable, The Wrong Hands has elements of magic realism reminiscent of Skellig and a teenage narrator with the kind of ingénue voice that marked The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time…An intriguing read.” Sunday Telegraph (London)
“Hugely entertaining.” Independent (London)
“The mix of contemporary technology with magical realism makes for a thrilling mystery, with surprises that continue throughout the story…Everything culminates in a triumphant climax. Older fans of David Almond’s Skellig will want this clever debut novel.” Booklist
“Listeners will relate to the teenage boy and his struggle with being different.” School Library Journal
