“Readers will enjoy Abigail’s blunt voice and savvy as she works to unravel the mystery of her parents’ pasts. FitzGerald’s experience writing thrillers for adults comes through in this atmospheric story that features codebreaking, an SF edge, and many twists.”
“FitzGerald excels with Abigail’s hard voice and in contrasting the rough, intimate streets of Glasgow with the glittering superficiality of L.A ... a good, gritty drama.”
“Gritty, dark and hard, beautifully demonstrating Abigail’s inner reserves of strength.”
“Darkly engaging and full of suspense.”
─Lynn Weingarten, author of Wherever Nina Lies
“Fans of strong heroines will love Abigail. Deviant is fast paced and dramatic, played out across an international stage.”
─Carrie Arcos, National Book Award Finalist for Out of Reach
“Humor, danger, romance and a heart-wrenching twist. If you are in the mood for a quick read that will keep you entertained, Deviant is it!”
“The horrors of family and people run deep in this book, but [Abigail] is a strong character with steady morals. I look forward to reading [FitzGerald’s] next book.”

This book almost has a split down the middle. The first half is about a street kid from Scotland finding her long lost family. The second half is about a mystery that involves the government, secrets and death. It almost feels like two different books, but that doesn’t detract from the story as much as you might think. Abigail is a smart kid who focuses on survival, but doesn’t completely alienate herself from the world around her. The struggles that she goes through are real and difficult, and something that kids face every day. The mystery part of the story is fun and interesting. If you’re into conspiracy theories, then this story is right up your alley. Are you considered paranoid if they’re really out to get you?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
