Taste the Bright Lights by Laura Canning
      Karen sat down on one of the couch cushions and pulled the bottle of vodka out of her fleece. The Mackers one sat down and started rolling a feg. Me and Nicola stood there, still lemony. We weren’t waiting to be asked to sit down, cos this wasn’t high tea, but we didn’t want to just take it for granted in case we weren’t staying. Weren’t allowed to stay. But then Karen said, Here Nicola, givvis one more feg and you and me and Lisa’ll split the rest of this voddy. So we sat down. And that was it. We were in.

'...the most terrifying book I've ever read... Incendiary reading. Exemplary writing. I read it in one sitting and couldn't move for an hour afterwards. In fact, I'm still having nightmares about it.' —Irish Times literary critic

'...one of the best novels I've read all year - really, seriously good. It made me cry and laugh and it all felt very, uncomfortably real. Brilliant job - this book deserves to be much better known.' Review blog on Taste the Bright Lights and YA fiction

'...destined for great things...one of those 'important' novels that critics sometimes harp on about.' —Author Keith Robinson

'Breath-taking...I was totally amazed by it. By god it deserves a hearing.' —Reader review

'Exceptional...a powerful, vivid and enjoyable book, very highly recommended for both adults and teenagers.' —Amazon review

'This book completely knocked me sideways. Laura Canning's portrayal of the forgotten and misunderstood youth of today is vivid and shocking...fresh and original and speaks for the disenchanted voice of a generation much like 'Catcher in the Rye' would have done to the youth of the 50s.' —Amazon review

'Epic Northern Irish novel...this book will become a classic.' —Amazon review
