Funny and tragic and brave... a beautiful, original novel.--Sarah Pinborough, New York Times bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes
I've never read anything like this. Completely original, and impossible to predict. I loved this book.
--Benjamin Ludwig, author of Ginny Moon
An original novel: poignant, engaging, at times suspenseful and even comic. It takes real skill to create a consistently credible child narrator, but I believed in 13-year-old Jasper and his confounding world. A triumph.--Sarah Vaughan, author of Anatomy of a Scandal
Jasper--whose world is both more colorful and more frightening than ours--is a character who will stay with me for some time. Harris has written a literary page turner that utterly captivated me. A stunning debut.--Cass Green, bestselling author of The Woman Next Door and In a Cottage in a Wood
I found myself not just drawn but expertly daubed in to Jasper's world, with its splattered sense of morals and innocence.--James Hannah, author of The A-Z of You and Me
In this fantastic debut, Harris enters the technicolor mind of 13-year-old Jasper Wishart... Readers enamored of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and The Rosie Project will delight in Harris's sparkling novel.--Publishers Weekly, starred review
A compelling and emotionally charged mystery that warrants comparisons to Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.--Library Journal
"Sarah J. Harris has written an insightful character study with a terrific mystery alongside. Or maybe it's a terrific mystery chaperoned by a compelling, heartbreaking, insightful narrator. Take your pick. Either way, it's a great story, hard to put down and beautifully told."--Laurie Frankel, author of This Is How It Always Is
