Review:

“Harnett likes human beings, warts and all; she is, above all, at home with childhood, its frankness and playfulness and exuberance and vulnerability. And she sees it, like the past, as another country. In 1953, aged 12, all I knew was that it was thrilling to read a story about smuggling and skulduggery. First and foremost, Harnett knew how to tell a story. “ Kevin Crossley-Holland, ‘Books to Remember’ in The Guardian, Feb 2001
