‘Gripping from the earliest pages, the story contains several unexpected twists that maintain a sense of suspense and keep readers wondering who Ashala can trust as she tries to protect her people. There is a wonderful sense of emotional connection to the land through Ashala which really appealed to me. While the thriller aspects of the story keep the pages turning, Ashala’s need to have a connection with her past and with her surroundings as well as her need to be true to herself and those she loves adds a real depth and thoughtfulness to the novel.’
"The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf sets itself apart. It is a bitingly clever dystopia, highly imaginative. Where other books fall flat, this one stands out as a startling contemporary example of the dystopian genre."
Bec Kavanagh, Australian Book Review
"Loved this book - better than The Hunger Games..."
"This first teenage novel from an Indigenous author gives The Hunger Games an Australian run for its dystopian money… the writing is supple and confident and Ashala is an inspiring role model."
"One of the most engrossing reads I have had in a long time."
