My Side of the Diamond

Publisher: Hot Key Books

Review

No one at the inquest believed Jazmin. They said she was on drugs. They said she was mad. They said it was her fault that Becky jumped.

Years later, Jazmin is approached by someone who not only wants to hear her story but also seems to believe every word of it. But surely her recollections of Icarus, his agelessness and superhuman abilities are too far-fetched to be true? And stories of a government cover-up and secret genetic experiments can’t possibly be real… Or can they?

This young adult science fiction novel will take your breath away. It is heart-breaking, terrifying, uplifting, thought-provoking and beautifully constructed. Its secrets are revealed very gradually, as multiple narrators help to join together the pieces of a complex puzzle – and the story will haunt you long after the last page is finished.
