The Handmaid's Tale meets Mean Girls'
Gripping ... like all the best dystopias, Only Ever Yours is about the world we live in now
A dark dream. A vivid nightmare. The world O'Neill imagines is frightening because it could come true. She writes with a scalpel
Utterly magnificent ... gripping, accomplished and dark
Deep, dark and frighteningly believable, this book will stay with you for a long time
Compelling writing ... this only-too-real dystopia grips from beginning to end
Deserves to be read by young and old, male and female, the world over in the same way Harry Potter and The Hunger Games were
Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale with a post-millennial twist
The bleakness of The Catcher in the Rye, the satire of The Stepford Wives and it made me recall Nineteen Eighty-Four ... a fresh and original talent
Terrifying but captivating
A sparkling debut that will really make you think
'Compelling and frightening'
An ingenious exploration of gender roles, female identity and female competition
'Terrifying and heartbreaking, O'Neill's story reads like an heir to Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale and MT Anderson's Feed, and, like those two books, it's sure to be discussed for years to come'
'A stunning debut set in a dystopian future that has everyone talking . . . once read, will never be forgotten'
Dark, gripping . . . should be mandatory reading everywhere
