    I have just finished this book in two days! I would recommend it! The book is from the eyes of a five year old who has lived in a room alone with his mother who was kidnapped and the became pregnant by her abuser very good read!

    I read it in a day, could not put it down and just felt exhausted when i had finished it. Stunning read, I bought copies for xmas presents for friends and they all loved it too.

    Has anyone read anything else by this author? I would love to try other books by her.

    This was a recommended read on RTE1's Joe Duffy's Spirit Level about a month ago. I saw it on amazon last night which reminded me, think I'll order it!

    This book arrived today from amazon. It is our next Book Club book. Everyone I know who has read it has recommended it, so I'm really looking forward to reading it.
