Observer Review - Teenage Fiction

reviewed by Geraldine Brennan, who finishes her piece with a recommendation for a title to be published early in the New Year:

Look out early in the new year for India Dark by Kirsty Murray (Templar £6.99), the tale of many orchestrated hissy fits on a floating prison: the ship carrying a troupe of Australian child performers on a tour of Indonesia and India in 1910. They thought they were going to America; they won't get home for two years; their biological clocks are ticking (once past puberty they soon become too old to perform); and their promoter is a charlatan. As a result, some of them are a little disturbed. The Red Shoes crossed with Picnic at Hanging Rock, based on a true story. Unmissable. GERALDINE BRENNAN
