Arlo himself may have raised some eyebrows, but in general (and to my delight) the blog tour was bursting with positive reviews. Check out a few of them below…

“Child’s second novel, following the successful Everything About You, combines compassion and a fascinating premise to produce a moving time-slip romance . . . The Undoing of Arlo Knott is a triumph”

“One of the most intelligent and readable high concept British novels of the last ten years” – Starburst Magazine

“One of my favourite reads so far this year” – Runalong the Shelves
