"Remember Gone Girl anyone?... This debut from Aly Sidgwick is set to do the same." (The Best New Authors You Need to Know About Now)
"A reflective piece of work which runs alongside a back story in the traditional style of a fast moving thriller... a hybrid between literary skills and genre thrills."
"A psychologically harrowing study of mental illness, Lullaby Girl is a rather astonishing debut novel. Confident, daring, and constantly uncomfortable, it will keep you on your toes. Definitely worth keeping an eye on where Sidgwick goes from here."
"The storytelling is at once poetic and suspenseful, giving the reader the conflicting desires to both contemplate a beautiful phrase and rush through the pages like a paperback mystery novel."
"Her work had beautiful textures, and big portions of darkness and humour, with equal parts of a sadness to them... seeing her drawings and tattoos i was not at all surprised that she wrote a novel, or that it was a good one. There is a great sense of tension, and of coldness in the story, but Sidgwick has a keen eye for detail and a dark sense of humour that shines through, making the dark and the cold easier to pass through. And to make the dark passages of the mind bearable is an achievement indeed."
