Reviews

"A powerful story about friendship, loyalty and family around this topical and controversial issue" * Guardian *
"Engrossing story" * Daily Telegraph *
"A sensitive and informative story that provides a vivid insight into transgenics and xenotransplantations and still manages to squeeze in the inevitable guinea-pig and piggy in the middle jokes" * Independent *
"Great for older readers able to tackle issues" * First *
"A bizarre yet strangely realistic book . . . The plot is well developed with many unexpected twists" * The Times *
