Latest Flip reviews

Glad to see that reviews of Flip are still appearing ten months after publication. And nice ones, too!
Here are some extracts from the latest batch:

“I thought ‘the idea’s good but will Bedford be able to make it into a good novel?’ The answer to this question is yes. I was unable to put this book down and the ending, well, it was phenomenal. A lot of teenagers wish they had someone else’s body – or at least a part of it – but this book will make you realise how lucky you are to be yourself. I am amazed that this is Bedford’s first YA book, as he has mastered it. This is great for people who are searching for a new author in children’s literature.” [Happygirl 165, Guardian online]

“The set-up is a very familiar scenario for sf/fantasy readers, but Bedford handles it in such a way that it feels like we’re visiting it for the first time. Though the protagonist is youthful, Bedford’s book is anything but. It taps into all sorts of ethical concerns and questions about the human condition and what our lives mean, while telling a gripping story. Highly recommended.” [Charles de Lint, Fantasy & Science Fiction magazine, U.S.]

“A convincing school story as well as an intelligent, probing character study. Bedford pushes readers to query, ever more rigorously, the meaning of identity and adaptation.” [Toronto Star, Canada]
