Praise

“Wickedly, brilliantly, inescapably funny in spite of its often-horrific scenarios, Hudson’s debut is, by equal turns, startling, devastating, and exhilarating.” – The Boston Globe

“Sharp and insightful, Hudson’s tender and courageous coming of age tale is impossible to put down. A gutsy debut that will engage and enthrall from page one.” – Lisa O’Donnell, author of The Death of Bees

“This bittersweet novel is warm and humorous, too.” –Booklist

“Funny and dark” – Kirkus Reviews 

“[Told] with hope and a biting sense of humor.” – ShelfAwareness

“…A witty and lively novel set somewhere between the worlds of Roddy Doyle and Irvine Welsh.” – William Dalrymple in The Guardian
   
“Colorful, funny, joyful and compelling” – The Observer
  
“Full of warmth and bittersweet humour” – The Financial Times
    
“Concurrently very funny and incredibly sad. The writing sizzles” – The Bookseller
     
“More than the best debut of 2012; it’s one of the best books of the year.” .” – Louise Welsh in The Herald (Scotland)
   
“A sympathetic coming-of-age tale and a valuable counterpoint to widespread social attitudes to women in poverty” – Metro (UK)
   
“Real and heartfelt, carried along by stunning, earthy dialogue that captures the rough poetry of daily speech…Hudson avoids the usual sentimental clichés and gives us, without a shred of hipster cynicism, the hope and tough warmth for which she has such a sharp eye.” – The Guardian
