"There is something about Assariyah which makes her addictive, you want to understand her, you want to look at the reasons why she makes the decisions she does. Although, she is only fictional, her life, her experiences and her journey feels real and this is down to the talent of the book’s author. I can only describe this novel as being of ‘sheer brilliance’, an amazing debut and a story that you will not want to end." - Sasha Shantel (Editor of In-spirels Magazine)
