Professional reviews

"'A writer of the highest quality with exceptional powers of insight.' SUNDAY TIMES 'Billy Elliot the book, the film, the musical and now the audiobook. And deeply affecting it is: a portrait of a widowed Durham collier desperately trying to keep his family together as grief and the miners' strike threaten to overwhelm him. Billy's 'bally' is inspirational, but it's only part of the story.' RACHEL REDFORD, THE OBSERVER"
