Guardian

Sunday Times, Best Books of 2017

Telegraph

"A perfect balm to a frustrating world"
Buzzfeed

"Timely, informative and hugely enjoyable... the book excels at what fiction is best at: inviting empathy and understanding for others"
Irish Times

"Things A Bright Girl Can Do is relevant for every generation"
Evening Standard

"A richly textured novel"
Observer, Best books of 2017

"Inspiring and infuriating in equal measures, Things A Bright Girl Can Do is an utterly captivating novel. Sally Nicholls deftly weaves history and politics into the narrative with such a lightness of touch, it was impossible to stop reading. Immensely enjoyable"

"Fantastic. Conveys all the intricacies of the political and social situation in a way that's vivid, hard-hitting, funny and emotionally compelling. It feels like we're living it, rather than just learning about it."
Frances Hardinge
