The Apology Box Reviews:
BookLife gives this “unique coming-of-age” story a 9/10.
Naomi Ulsted’s The Apology Box is a complex contemporary fiction novel that overflows with the raw intensity of the human spirit. Ulsted superbly captures the very essence of those awkward moments where we all pretend like we’re comfortable with a situation just to fit in, but the reality is completely different. The heart-wrenching plot is more about how one careless act is perceived, remembered and recovered from, rather than the flaws and complexities of teenage rationale in making a bad decision. Tessa, though flawed, is an admirable example of a brave person willing to take responsibility rather than avoid accountability. In our world where culpability is easily pushed on others, The Apology Box is a must-read novel that is modern, compelling and painfully relevant.
The Apology Box is written with great empathy and cinematic immediacy. It is also a vivid, authentic environmental allegory concerned with finding our way back, healing and regeneration. This is a wonderful book
This young adult novel is captivating, frustrating, and oh so real.
A poignant young adult novel about redemption, community, and moving forward after life-altering mistakes.
