Product description

Review

Chesterman's compelling creation of Arcadia, a preternaturally precocious sleuth with an unsettlingly clear-sighted and plain-spoken manner, is matched by the twists and turns of a devious plot, making for a true page-turner.--Philip Jeyaretnam, Lawyer and Author

In prose so still and measured, Chesterman methodically uncovers Arcadia's world. Beneath this astonishing portrait of a family is an invisible intellectual machinery at work that will intrigue readers at every turn. I am already impatient for the next book.--Leeya Mehta, Author

Raising Arcadia is a pacy mystery novel that has, at its centre, the irrepressible (and perhaps sociopathic) heroine Arcadia, a sixteen-year-old searching for her place in the adult world. Stuffed with intrigue and mystery, it will be adored by young adults and by adults who prize curiosity and challenge. Read it--and then read it again, to see if you noticed all the clues.--Adrian Tan, Lawyer and Author

She's Harry Potter without a wand; Katniss Everdeen without a quiver. It's the world against Arcadia, armed only with her fabulous, prodigious, logical mind. A super impressive debut.--Tony Wilson, Author

What a mind-racing read! Raising Arcadia is Fringe meets Perception, Hermione meets Sherlock... a wonderful exploration of destiny vs. potential.--Sharon Au, Actress and Founder of styleXstyle.com
