Genre: Young Adult | Family & Relationships
Written by a thirteen-year-old author, this exciting and captivating page-turner transports you into the fascinating story of sixteen-year-old aspiring singer Fiona Watson who runs away from her family, oblivious to the dangers outside her shielded comfort zone. As she journeys through her new world, leaving her past behind and determined to find a new identity, she uncovers surprising secrets buried deep within her long ago…
How do her new friends link to her past? What secrets are they hiding behind their misleading smiles? How much of herself has she really left behind? And how will she cope when she realises that she has made a huge mistake… one that could ruin her forever?
Legal Crime’s themes of identity, self-discovery and peer pressure will resonate with young readers. Quirky and imaginative, I think the author has the potential to be a great writer with a little more maturity and experience and I am sure we will see more from her in the future.Emma’s Biblio Treasures
Overall the characters are well written. There were a few moments when I just wanted to yell and Fiona but I think that’s the point. The author showed that Fiona is flawed but still comes across as likeable. You can’t help but root for her. I liked that we saw growth in all the characters and they weren’t all the same throughout the whole book.Featz Reviews
Samiksha is a very clever young writer. She has managed to encapsulate the teen psyche without it veering towards the stereotypical tropes that many adult writers rely upon.If These Books Could Talk
