”The following reviews are based on the original book by Anne Fine.•'The Tulip Touch grapples with the topical question of what turns children into criminals. It engrossingly chronicles a childhood friendship with a disadvantaged girl who goes to the bad. This novel will make children aged between 11 and 14 think about the dangers of peer pressure and the collective responsibility of society for unhappy children. As always, Fine teaches her lessons by making her readers feel.”Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times.
”’It's a brilliant book.”Ian Hislop
