('The author portrays the wild beauty of north Donegal, the doubt and confusion of girls just beginning to discover their sexuality, with a lyrical use of language that perfectly catches the mood of both time and place. The book is a joy to read and sustains the air of wonder, of unsolved mystery to the final chapter.' --Irish Immigrant Review)

Review:

'With a delicate touch not unlike Arundhati Roy's in The God of Small Things, Ni Dhuibhne sneaks under the ill-fitting skin of her metamorphosing Derry and Dublin cast. Their stories unravel in shifting voices with all the wisdom and perspective of an omniscient narrator.' Sunday Business Post 'Ni Dhuibhne's writing is marvellous, building layers of impression until a complex, vital and true-false picture of liberation is revealed.' --Irish Times

'The author portrays the wild beauty of north Donegal, the doubt and confusion of girls just beginning to discover their sexuality, with a lyrical use of language that perfectly catches the mood of both time and place. The book is a joy to read and sustains the air of wonder, of unsolved mystery to the final chapter.' --Irish Immigrant Review

'Her observations are lemon-fresh, her writing beautiful, witty and wry.' --Sunday Express
