In the Books section of Saturday's Telegraph, Justine Picardie and William Leith were given a page to review 'emotionally complex novels for adolescents':

Picardie reviewed Forbidden by Judy Waite ("foreboding mood of suspense"); Walking Naked by Alyssa Brugman ("sharply observed, with a tragedy at its heart"); Paradise End by Elizabeth Laird ("a galloping plot"); a new edition of Flambards by K. M. Peyton ("far more than a simple adolescent escapist fantasy"); and Boy2Girl by Terence Blacker ("a teenage book attmepting to move beyond gender stereotypes").

Leith reviewed Boy Kills Man by Matt Whyman ("excellent"); <i>Ruby Tanya by Robert Swindells ("a decent, well-turned story"); and The Dark Ground by Gillian Cross ("terrific... reminds me of William Golding's Pincher Martin)".
