Adam Ross…a wildly brilliant and precocious first novel…that's not easy to describe. Nonlinear and occasionally tricky to follow, it's a series of plays within plays; and as in a piece of experimental theater, its characters often break mid-dialogue to confess in startlingly honest asides or snatch at one another's thoughts…There's plenty to enjoy here, including Catton's keen insights into high school's herd mentality and the remarkable set pieces in which the young actors are put through the paces by their tutors. It doesn't always come off…But this young author is astonishingly talented, and her writing can steal any scene.
