Praise

[A]n astonishingly potent offering to women who break the mold.”—Bookliststarred review

“With a memorable blend of magic and reality, Fowley-Doyle tells a harrowing and ultimately empowering story
. . .” —The Horn Book

Beautiful and visceral, All the Bad Apples is for readers who’ve had enough of shame and secrets. This essential book unearths what patriarchy wants to keep buried, dragging truth into the light with a fierce belief in the power of telling stories. Moïra Fowley-Doyle has crafted a tale devastating in its universality.”—Joy McCullough, author of Blood Water Paint


An uncompromising, raw tale . . . Told in a mix of letters, family stories, and narrative, this devastating novel manages to find hope for the future while sending pointed messages that are as vital as they are timely.”—Publishers Weekly

“[T]he echo of past trauma is hauntingly underscored by the invocation of the banshee scream, and the book has a simmering, authentically righteous fury . . . Give this to readers of Wallace’s The Memory Trees or Griffin’s Other Words for Smoke for a similarly eerie look at how present ills are informed by past sins.”—BCCB

An emotional journey through Ireland’s unspoken history. . . . Simultaneously enjoyable and difficult to read, Fowley-Doyle’s fast-paced, evocative novel introduces . . . unsettling truths, both historical and contemporary, such as incest, rape, abortion, child labor, and violence against women and those in the LGBTQ community. These topics, however, are important and are handled with great care . . .  Recommended for readers who enjoy realistic and historical fiction.”—School Library Journal
