Editorial Reviews

'A thoughtful, philosophical novel for teens interested in or dealing with the aftereffects of trauma.'Kirkus Reviews'Hendrick's prose is gorgeous, literary and emotive... Likewise, the dialogue is so authentic I felt like I was eavesdropping rather than reading fiction. The characters are flawed and vulnerable and wonderfully layered. Hendrick knows how to up the stakes, raise the tension and she is not kind to her characters (things are tough, things get tougher). They bleed onto the pages in such an intimate and unpretentious way it was impossible not to ache for them... [The Accident] is effortlessly compelling, quietly, sneakily, powerful... I am still thinking about it.'Inkcrush blog 'A thoughtful, philosophical novel for teens interested in or dealing with the aftereffects of trauma.'Kirkus Reviews'Hendrick's prose is gorgeous, literary and emotive...
