“A triumph… Fuller handles the tension masterfully in this grown-up thriller of a fairytale, full of clues, questions and intrigue”
“Post-apocalyptic scenarios of being the last person alive on Earth are standard fare for Young Adult literature, but that familiar trope is given a twist in a debut novel that brings to mind such unlikely bedfellows as Thoreau’s Walden and Emma Donoghue’s Room…gripping”
- The Guardian
“Fuller evokes the natural world's beauty and brutalities as her characters endure nine torrid years in the forest and the novel reaches a sinister conclusion.”
