"[...] a sharp, sweet satire. [...] Sheldon has a brilliant ear for
teenage diction, and makes comic yet convincing characters of each.
[...] Here, as in her other novels, her skill lies in her ability
to inhabit the teenage perspective, and to satirise without
sneering. [...] gripping read." * The Daily Telegraph *
"It opens up feminist ideas for girls in a way that is fun and funny, while also recognising that boys can be restricted by gender stereotypes too. [...]It's a really good read, and one which opens up ideas rather than pushing messages. Highly recommended." * The School Librarian *
