"With her light touch, convincing dialogue and sparky humour, [Curtis] makes self-harm, anorexia, attempted suicide, depression, cancer and alcoholism all palatable for a young audience without being patronising or employing self-improvement gobbledygook. She also makes it funny." --Scotland on Sunday
