Your pitch is interesting and attractive and made me want to read this book. You have sad episodes, serious episodes, but above all, funny episodes. I loved your introductory chapter, where you told the careers’ teacher that you already had a job as a Dolphin Trainer, although it was far from the truth. I like the way your mind wanders from one thing to another in your past life; for instance, you tell us about leaving school, remember some of the things that happened there, such as the murder of a girl by her brother on the games field; and then go off to tell us about the murder you were involved in yourself. This is told in such a light, entertaining way that we hardly realise what a serious business it was. You are a skillful writer, with a relaxed, easy narrative voice, and you hook us in quickly to want to read more. Backed.
