Reviews
"Tremendous; the transition from pity to fear, as we warily circle Aoileann's brutalised psyche, is brilliantly done." --The Guardian

"This is a truly different Irish novel. One that entwines Irish myth, the reality of human bodies, life and death, and traditional gothic horror in a macabrely beautiful and, in the end, redemptive dance." --Irish Independent

"If men did pregnancy, more horror would look like this: everyday caring with the volume turned up slightly and slowly until it is a scream that chills you to your insides, and echoes long into the night." --Books Ireland Magazine

"Sophie White's prose is exquisite and disturbing, both brutish and beautifully crafted. Full of heart, Where I End is not for the faint-hearted." --The Irish Times

"Compelling all the way to the final page." --Strange Horizons

"Where I End by Sophie White is a beautifully voiced, horrific novel about a teenager and her grandmother who live in isolation on an Irish island caring for the girl's bedridden mother. The layers of the story unfold like an onion, one rotten at the core. Harrowing, glorious body horror (in an unexpected way), and one of the best novels of the year." --Ellen Datlow, editor of The Best Horror of the Year

"Beautiful and strange." --Louise O'Neill, award-winning author of Asking For It

"Deeply creepy and compelling."--John Connolly, bestselling author of The Book of Lost Things

"Disturbing, brutal, chilling, this book truly is a horror. It's also Sophie White's best book yet." --Doireann Ní Ghríofa, award-winning author of A Ghost in the Throat
