Audiences and applause

I was very pleased to have The Push reviewed by Ian Nichols in this weekend’s West Weekend Magazine.  There’s nothing like a review in your hometown, I have to say.  The review started, ‘a premier exploration of the vague boundary between young adult and adult novels’, which seems to be something I’ve been hearing a lot of. I can see the point of the argument – when is a book for teenagers not a book for teenagers? – but my teenaged readers seem to like it as much as older folk.  But my next ones will be much more firmly audience specific, I think (see the s*x in cars entry previously).  Watch this space.
