Guardian Review

Dying to Know You by Aidan Chambers, reviewed by Patrick Ness

"Is this a book for teenagers?" Ness asks at the conclusion of his review... And then says:

Why on earth not? It features two fully realised, complicated teenagers at its centre, viewed with a clear-eyed compassion by an observer who could have tipped towards the alien but remains fully human. It is perfect for that cloudy expanse between older teenager and younger adult, a novel that doesn't pretend to advise, but merely sees its characters for who they really are. No one appreciates that more than a teenager does. PATRICK NESS
