Product description

Review

From the shocking opening to the very last page, this is the one book I really hated to put down until I was done. It's so textured . . . I also love that she's a black, or blackish, girl – so often YA does not contain them (or only as peripheral characters) – and she is such a fascinating protagonist. I also loved the skilful way Johnson turned us around on some characters. I could not ask for more in a YA novel, to be honest. I'd give it all the awards if I could -- Bim Adewumni, YA Book Prize judge

A rich and entertaining tale which raises questions and challenges assumptions -- Celia Rees ― Armadillo

The book has a lot to say about who we are and the pretences we put on for other people, and also about the limited chances in life that a woman had . . . The historical period comes to life well in the book, although it also has a lot to say that is relevant today. -- Carol Williams ― readingzone.com

A well researched, finely written re-imagining of an actual historical figure, The Curious Tale of The Lady Caraboo sheds light on how identity is formed and shaped by the stories we tell about ourselves and the stories, like that of the ‘exotic other’, that are projected upon us . . . A great yarn with a beguiling central character -- Peter Kalu, author of SILENT STRIKER

Book Description

Set in the early nineteenth century, this is incredible story of the ultimate historical hustle, based on the true story of Mary Wilcox.
