From the publisher

'An accomplished, powerful, mesmerising story that explores a seventeen-year-old's embroilment in an abusive relationship with an older man. Shifting between two timelines, it's also a potent coming-of-age novel, and a fascinating portrait of a mother-daughter bond. The steady, measured style coupled with the present tense immediacy creates tremendous tension. There's a sense that something is simmering. In Nell's past, which we enter in 1983' LOVEREADING. Praise for Emily Critchley's debut NOTES ON MY FAMILY: 'This exceptional young adult/crossover debut is the compelling, sharply observed story of a family in crisis told, in an understated narrative voice reminiscent of Mark Haddon or Harper Lee, by 13-year-old Lou, who is on the autism spectrum.'
