David Belbin was my tutor for fiction for young adults on the NTU Creative Writing MA. I learned such a lot from him, so it was great that he came to the book launch, and sent this feedback on the book. He's not slow to be critical, so this is really appreciated!

"I'm fond of good identity swap stories. But they're difficult to pull off well. I thought that you came up with a really good take on the idea, with vivid, believable characters and an intelligent use of the contrasting time periods, which should be thought-provoking for younger readers. And it has a really strong ending, too, not too sentimental or message heavy, but pointing your readers in the right direction. I'm sure it will do really well for you."
