      Last Bird Singing is a compelling psychological thriller, that doesn’t flinch away from the dark moments in life. We enter into Keeley’s world. Her mother is a prostitute, her father has died and her stepfather regularly abuses her. Her only confident is Jess, her older cousin. When Keeley hits her stepfather over the head with a heavy, glass ash tray, she knows she has to leave. Packing a bag, she slips away and hides out with Jess, living in a derelict squat. Things are already going badly [...]

      Gripping, but I didn't like the constant jumping without a proper break in between scenes. Horrifying to know that people like Zal and Eddy actually do exist in real life.

      This is a really bleak book - while in some places I liked the writing style, in others I thought my kindle was playing up and had skipped pages - it goes from really tight narrative to skipping important bits out that make you think "wait, I missed something".The characters are not remotely likeable or sympathetic and frankly pretty stupid. However, I was drawn into it, even though I was almost yelling at the main chars to get a grip.

      Unreadab!e rubbishHard to get started,definitely couldn't finish it. Unlikeable characters,badly portrayed. Geordie accents not authentic. The author's attempt at a juvenile voice only succeeded in being unintelligent. Disjointed. Same sex scene appeared gratuitous. Don' t waste your time or money.

      I really tried till 60% of the book then gave up. Just couldn't get into it, found myself skimming through pages. For me too much boring description of every action. This book obviously appealed to some readers going by the reviews.each to their own

      Dark and gritty as promised. Incredibly depressing but also a very realistic portrayal of the darkness that seeps into a lot of teenagers lives and the difficulties they can go through trying to escape that when trapped by poverty and familiarity.
