Reviews

Golden Boy is an undeniably one of the most incredible books I have ever read...Such an important novel, one I wish everyone would read, one I feel should be read in schools. It's perfect, and I am so, so glad I've had the opportunity to read it.

Terrific. A poignant, brave and important book.
S J WATSON, author of Before I Go to Sleep
An original read about a young person in an extraordinary situation... Unlike anything you will have read before... Brave, unique and utterly compelling. This is a book that will certainly make you think about life.
HEAT MAGAZINE
An astonishingly good novel covering a rarely touched topic.
SO SO GAY
If a book with literary ambition should both inform and entertain, as well as make you see the world in a different way, if only slightly, then Tarttelin has certainly achieved that.
Peter Raynard, LITRO
a coming-of-age story worth seeking out from a young author widely tipped for great things
DIVA
A gripping read. [Tarttelin] is a natural storyteller.
Matt Haig, METRO
Tarttelin broaches the topic of intersexuality bravely, describes the crimes committed against Max intensely, and evokes his ensuing emotions poignantly. A highly praised new author, her fresh, modern approach and contemporary writing style result in an inimitably of-the-moment novel which is beautifully matter-of-fact, eloquently meditative and fearlessly action-packed, all at once.

A warmly human coming-of-age story... [Max's] desperate search for identity is gripping, emotionally engaging, and genuinely unforgettable, as, indeed, is this accomplished first novel.
