With short chapters and a fast pace, this is an addictive novel and a great read for those who enjoy a gritty, gory adventure story. Even better, it is set in the wild unpredictable nature of our own country (Aotearoa). Rosalie Elliffe for Booksellers NZ
Wowee! What a great book. I'm so not a fan of sci-fi but this defies the genre. A great YA book that is gripping; a real page turner. The story follows many threads but it's easy to keep track of. Matuku is a fantastic writer, it's poetic without being overbearing. I can definitely see this being made into a film too. A wonderful addition to the NZ YA scene. Read it. You won't regret it5-star review by Rebekah Fraser on Goodreads
This is the kind of book I wish I could have read growing up. A story set in Aotearoa with kids just like me and my mates from high school. In fact every character in the book was just like someone I knew from school. Even though it was an exceptional and one off event (bus falling off a cliff, kids get lost) the kiwiness of the kids made the story relatable e.g. Rocky, the hot Maori boy saying 'bro' all the time.
I found myself turning each page furiously, and then getting shocked at what I just read, and then turning the page again furiously for more! I laughed out loud at some of the words that came out of the characters mouths lol very very relatable.
There's a lot of good messages in this book too. Theres Devlin who has been bullied her whole life. You can feel her insecurities throughout the narrative. I won't give away too much but there is redemption and love! I believe this book would be great for high school students to study for English class. Awesome debut novel from Steph Matuku. 5-star review by Shilo Kino on Goodreads
