"Nicholls has brought alive the young women of the past to empower the next generation" -- Alex O'Connell * The Times, Children's Book of the Week * "Each voice is distinct, resonant and authentic... uniquely special" -- Imogen Russell Williams * Guardian * "Romantic and inspiring" -- Nicolette Jones * Sunday Times, Best Books of 2017 * "[A] chocolate box of a novel ... books such as this are all the more to be prized" * 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" -- Geraldine Brennan * 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" -- Louise O'Neill "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 * "Hurrah for Sally! This is a lovely and engrossing novel about three girls caught up in the Suffragette movement and WW1. It's Sarah Waters for teens, pitch-perfect, historically accurate, very romantic and a jolly good read." * Robin Stevens * "Tough, unsentimental and well realised" -- Amanda Craig * New Statesman, Best Books of 2017 * "An incredible read for any young person, that teaches the importance of equality" -- Natasha Harding * The Sun * "A fascinating and emotive read for any budding feminist" * Scotsman * "A captivating YA novel... Things a Bright Girl Can Do explores sexual identity, the grim realities of poverty and war and the fraught nature of first love. Its appeal will reach readers of any age." -- Sarra Manning * Red Magazine *
