“The plot twists and turns … There are echoes of Orwell and Kafka in this tense thriller, which thoroughly respects its readers’ intelligence.”
Andrea Reece, LoveReading4Kids
“A timely and riveting debut thriller about tolerance and the complexities of truth.”
Kirkus Reviews (USA)
“From the very first pages to the nail-biting finale, Waudby keeps the reader on edge as we accompany K on her journey of self discovery … ONE OF US is a skilfully crafted, tension filled book with a timely plotline and wonderful characters and left me feeling both satisfied and intrigued to read more from Jeannie. Highly recommend.”
What Danielle Did Next
“Debut author Jeannie Waudby crosses the cultural divide in this nail-biting teen thriller set in a modern society divided by violence, prejudice and distrust.”
Lancashire Evening Post
“With echoes of real life this is a hard-hitting read with a strong message about right and wrong.”
“An excellent and often times topical debut shrouded in suspicion and paranoia.”
“[A] cleverly plotted vision of a frighteningly believable and recognisable country … the overall effect is powerful and satisfying. Very much a thriller, with a strong element of romance, this is an accomplished debut from an author I’ll be looking out for in future.”
The School Librarian
“Jeannie Waudby’s thought-provoking story continually prompts the question of who’s really the terrorist while the reader roots for K, hoping she finally realises where she belongs.”
