Hi Alexia, I absolutely love The Bone Dragon and am currently writing an academic article about it. I’m having trouble identifying any reviews that are by adolescents rather than adults. Do you happen to know any YA readers whose reviews are published online? Many thanks Helen Day (University of Central Lancashire) HFDay@uclan.ac.uk
