"" Guardian 20120425 "Blackman's emotional intelligence is such that Boys Don't Cry should be read aloud in every secondary school" -- Amanda Craig The Times 20101211 "Her writing at its best, creating characters and a story which, once read, will not easily go away" -- Nick Tucker Independent 20101116 "Blackman grapples with contemporary issues without ever letting them overwhelm the story and characterisation. A winner" -- Suzi Feay Financial Times 20101113 "This is an adroit investigation of family relations, very clearly portrayed" -- Toby Clements Daily Telegraph 20101127
