Review by: Vicki Tyley on Sep. 29, 2010 :
I was hooked from the disclaimer at the front: “This book contains profanity, violence toward bagsnatchers, religious discussions which don't necessarily conclude with 'and of course the bible's always right, as is the church', moral judgments, teen sex, gay relationships, and - possibly worst of all - Australian spelling and slang…”

This novella was so different to anything I’ve ever read. It was right out there, raw and real. Maisy May is a straight-talking tough nut, loyal as she is outspoken. I loved both her voice and the story.

Bloody brilliant as we Aussies say…

I like the story, and how the characters develop in the telling. The characters are realistic, and behave in ways you might expect them to do. This may not be a book for the easily offended, and fair warning is given.

What can I say? A lovable character that was somehow real and raw. I wished it was longer. Well worth the read!

I really enjoyed the characters in this book. I think there was so many facets to the relationships in this story, it would have been great as a full-length novel. The story was engaging, and I'd love to see a sequel!

Let me first confess that I would never normally read a book with the word "christian" on the cover. But having read (and loved) Naomi Kramer's first book, I knew I couldn't really go wrong with this one. As expected, it was not preachy at all, and as expected, it was a joy to read.

I loved Maisy's fresh voice and I followed with great interest her journey through doubts, friendships, experimentations, and life changes. She is a strong, interesting, loveable character, and I can't wait for the next novella to see how she's doing. Her direct and honest narration really makes you care for this fictional girl as if she was a close friend.
