`The year's must read novel' The Times `One of the most important books you'll pick up this decade' Harper's Bazaar `An outstanding book that could be this year's A Little Life' Guardian `For once, believe the hype' The National `You think you're invincible. You think you won't ever miss. We need to put the fear on you. You need to surrender yourself to death before you ever begin, and accept your life as a state of grace, and then and only then will you be good enough.' At 14, Turtle Alveston knows the use of every gun on her wall;That chaos is coming and only the strong will survive it;That her daddy loves her more than anything else in this world.And he'll do whatever it takes to keep her with him. She doesn't know why she feels so different from the other girls at school;Why the line between love and pain can be so hard to see;Why making a friend may be the bravest and most terrifying thing she has ever doneAnd what her daddy will do when he finds out ... Sometimes strength is not the same as courage.Sometimes leaving is not the only way to escape.Sometimes surviving isn't enough.

`There are books we like well enough to recommend, but there are a very few - To Kill a Mockingbird, Catch-22, The Things They Carried - that we remember forever. To my own shortlist I can now add My Absolute Darling, by Gabriel Tallent ... The word "masterpiece" has been cheapened by too many blurbs, but My Absolute Darling absolutely is one' Stephen King `Tallent's breathtaking debut is a harrowing and at times psychologically difficult journey on the scale of A Little Life or The Goldfinch, but it's worth it ... A true inspiration' Harper's Bazaar `My Absolute Darling is an absolute triumph' National `If you liked Hanya Yanagihara's A Little Life, you'll love this' Daily Mail `A debut novel infused with the same spirit and raw power as To Kill a Mockingbird, Of Mice and Men, and other works we consider to be modern classics, and it will hold its own among them' 15 Bytes `[Turtle] recalls the great child characters of American Literature' New York Times `Easily one of my favourite debut novels of the last decade' Michele Filgate, Lit Hub `Fierce, insightful and gorgeously written debut. Outstanding' PSYCHOLOGIES magazine `Tallent's prose is outstanding, vivid and poetic' S Magazine `[Turtle] is a heroine who'll hover in your mind long after the final chapter, and Tallent has produced an intense, gloriously written account of her thrilling bid for freedom' Mail on Sunday `Vivid, tender and brutal' Elle Magazine `Brutal yet beautiful, My Absolute Darling has floored me. Dear Turtle, a heroine amidst the horror. Exceptional, unflinching storytelling' Ali Landâ , author of Good Me Bad Me `Unlike anything I've read before. An astonishing debut' Kate Hamer, author of The Girl in the Red Coat
