"Gripping and funny... A brave and intelligent novel" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"Shockingly irreverent and funny while exerting that all-important emotional tug... A well-plotted, unexpectedly twisting saga" ( Guardian)

"Kaui Hart Hemmings' assured touch and her fine grasp of the absurd ensures that this novel steers a deliciously scenic route between heartbreak and hilarity" ( Daily Mail)

"An assured and subtle writer. The islands rise lush and untamed in the background" ( Observer)
