Críticas:

Terrific. A poignant, brave and important book. ( S J WATSON, author of Before I Go to Sleep)

A warmly human coming-of-age story... [Max's] desperate search for identity is gripping, emotionally engaging, and genuinely unforgettable, as, indeed, is this accomplished first novel. ( BOOKLIST (USA))

A gripping read. [Tarttelin] is a natural storyteller. (Matt Haig METRO)

a coming-of-age story worth seeking out from a young author widely tipped for great things ( DIVA)

I knew I was really into this when I missed my stop on the bus! It's about gold-star pupil, Max, and his MP dad, who have to deal with a hidden family secret surfacing. ( COMPANY)

If a book with literary ambition should both inform and entertain, as well as make you see the world in a different way, if only slightly, then Tarttelin has certainly achieved that. (Peter Raynard LITRO)

Unlike anything you will have read before... Brave, unique and utterly compelling. This is a book that will certainly make you think about life. ( HEAT MAGAZINE)

An original read about a young person in an extraordinary situation... Unlike anything you will have read before... Brave, unique and utterly compelling. This is a book that will certainly make you think about life. ( HEAT MAGAZINE)

Tarttelin broaches the topic of intersexuality bravely, describes the crimes committed against Max intensely, and evokes his ensuing emotions poignantly. A highly praised new author, her fresh, modern approach and contemporary writing style result in an inimitably of-the-moment novel which is beautifully matter-of-fact, eloquently meditative and fearlessly action-packed, all at once. ( WE LOVE THIS BOOK)

Golden Boy is an undeniably one of the most incredible books I have ever read...Such an important novel, one I wish everyone would read, one I feel should be read in schools. It's perfect, and I am so, so glad I've had the opportunity to read it. ( www.onceuponabookcase.co.uk)
