A beautiful road trip-come-fable-come-quest novel, in Rosoff's trademark understated but vivid and romantic style. The journeys are physical and emotional, and this book will appeal to a wide range of readers. Full Review

If you don't mind the slow start and loads of confusing philosophizing, there are some thrills and edge-of-your seat suspense to be had later on. Full Review
