Review

Praise for The Goldfish Boy

* -Thompson strikes the perfect balance, seemingly without compromise, between an issue-driven novel and one with broad, commercial appeal. This empathetic debut is a middle-grade whodunit with a very special heart.- -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review



Praise for Lisa Thompson's The Goldfish Boy

* "Thompson strikes the perfect balance, seemingly without compromise, between an issue-driven novel and one with broad, commercial appeal. This empathetic debut is a middle-grade whodunit with a very special heart." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"A multilayered mystery at once suspenseful and heartrending." --Booklist

"The novel successfully weaves Matthew's personal struggle with obsessive-compulsive disorder and the search for the missing toddler into a compelling story with a hearty dose of mystery and adventure." --School Library Journal

"This book is filled with intriguing characters and tragic, mysterious pasts. Thompson has created a modern teenage tale interwoven with classic literary themes like loss, guilt, neglect, and loneliness. This is a story for everyone, featuring mystery, drama, and enough realism to inspire students to research and understand the complexities of the mind." --School Library Connection

"Heart and humour, along with a strong message about the value of family, friends and facing fears [...] make this assured debut stand out." -- Observer

"Both a genuine mystery and an emotionally charged examination of fear and loneliness, this is a terrific read with warmly engaging characters." --Daily Mail

"This carefully judged, poignant story should help those with OCD feel less alone-and help others to understand the impulses behind painful acts of repetition." --Guardian

"A genuinely clever mystery." --Robin Stevens, author of the Murder Most Unladylike series

"A great cast of characters and an intriguing mystery-I loved it!" --Ross Welford, author of Time Travelling with a Hamster --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
