Comments from Paddy Richardson, Best-Selling Author and NZSA Mentor
“The pace is great- the story moves along swiftly, gathering momentum and tension. There are truly scary as well as tender moments…I really think this is a novel young adults would both empathise with and find exciting and fascinating.”
“11:42 is a novel placed in a contemporary setting with a diverse range of characters and an intriguing plot. The principal strengths of the novel are the major characters, Rachel and Noah, who are convincingly portrayed, coupled with the increasing tension conveyed through the carefully structured plot. The title creates interest and, described as a paranormal romance, the novel combines genres skilfully, the supernatural juxtaposed alongside the more traditional conventions of the romantic novel providing additional quirkiness and ‘edge’. These contrasting stylistic devices blend and intertwine creating interest and suspense.”
