""If life is like a box of chocolates as Forrest Gump says, then a good box of chocolates will have something for everyone, and a few surprises...So, as far as boxes of chocolates go, this anthology isn’t just soft centres. Some of the stories will give you something to chew on. Some will make you smile with recognition, and some will make you cry. But they are all worth tasting, you may just find something new that you like.""

Rachel Moore - Booksellers

""The subjects vary, but all deal with aspects of, mostly modern, Māori life - both the positive and the troubling.""

Catherine Robertson - NZ Listener
