Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE DIARY OF PELLY D:'a convincingly told and gripping story' -- TES '... catches you by the throat and it doesn't let you go even when you have read the last paragraph. This is a brilliant example of storytelling at its most seductive ... a fastpaced, utterly absorbing novel that is hard to put down ...' -- Sunday Morning Post, John Millen 'L J Adlington's spare and concise voice brings Pelly D vividly to life ... will intrigue and grip from the first diary entry to the open-ended and chilling conclusion.' -- Pocklington Post 'Written in the breathless, racy style of a young teenager, Pelly's diaries just keep you reading ... It gives an old theme a fresh twist ...' -- York Evening Press '... a clever, unusual story that readers looking for something different will find captivating.
