With a memorable blend of magic and reality, Fowley-Doyle tells a harrowing and ultimately empowering story * The Horn Book * Hints of magic, from a family curse to a banshee's wail, amplify the sense of mystery . . . evocative writing, eerie details, and intense emotional content. Compelling * Kirkus * Compelling . . . the book has a simmering, authentically righteous fury * Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books * Intense social motivation sits easily alongside loveable characters and a compelling narrative . . . All The Bad Apples isn't just about evil doings, it's about silence too, and the complicity of that silence - the further evil done by knowing and not saying . . . The most emotive moment comes when the characters, previously almost crushed by their fate, realise the enormous power of telling their stories, loudly and without fear * Irish Independent * Beautiful and visceral, All the Bad Apples is for readers who've had enough of shame and secrets. This essential book unearths what patriarchy wants to keep buried, dragging truth into the light with a fierce belief in the power of telling stories. Moira Fowley-Doyle has crafted a tale devastating in its universality * Joy McCullough, author of Blood Water Paint * An uncompromising, raw tale . . . Told in a mix of letters, family stories, and narrative, this devastating novel manages to find hope for the future while sending pointed messages that are as vital as they are timely * Publishers Weekly * Fowley-Doyle travels through generations, examining the power women possess, the things that have been taken from them, and the things they fight to reclaim . . . An astonishingly potent offering to women who break the mould * Booklist * Tender and fierce, full of blessings and curses, a fiery avenging angel of a book. I loved how it tied together family and tragedy and history and destiny, winding through generations and knitting everyone together, and, most of all, how it kept the crimes committed against young women who stray from the path at its heart, and exposed them to the sky, turning judgement on the judges, exposing the hypocrisy of it all. I am in absolute awe of it * Melinda Salisbury, author of The Sin Eater's Daughter * This is beautiful, visceral writing; a primal scream that serves as a damning indictment of the way women have been treated in this country * Louise O'Neill, author of Asking For It * This lyrical, furious examination of victimised, silenced Irish women is compelling * Guardian * Exquisite . . . It's a gorgeous set-up for a magical realist dive into today's teenagers confronting the hideous heritage of this country. This is a book to hold tightly to your chest * Irish Times *
