Reviews

With FRIENDS LIKE THESE, Sarah Alderson has created a fascinating female monster. This cleverly plotted, well written book kept me engaged to the last page.
Rachel Abbott, author of <i>Come A Little Closer</i>
The exploration of social media envy/fakery was incredibly dark but also caused me several winces of recognition. Compelling, timely, yet very original all at once.
Elodie Harper, author of <i>The Death Knock</i>
Captivating writing with just the right amount of twists and turns to keep you on your toes... Absolutely loved it!
SJI Holliday, author of <i>The Lingering</i>
Absolutely loved this... It's dark and satirical and uncomfortable reading for anyone on Instagram.
Claire McGowan, author of the Paula Maguire series
This is an exhilarating ride where nothing is what it seems... Good luck getting anything else done until you've turned the final page.
