The first review of Monsters of Virtue

Independent news outlet Scoop has released a glowing review of L.J. Ritchie’s Monsters of Virtue.

‘One of the early reviewers said Monsters of Virtue and Ritchie reminded them of John Marsden and, having just re-read Marsden’s iconic Tomorrow series, I couldn’t agree more. There’s a sense of narration that is similar; something, perhaps, to do with the ANZAC voice writing the present tense perspective of teenagers in an extreme environment. These teenagers are just a bit younger than Ellie and her gang, however, and it shows. This is where the book veers into Lord of the Flies territory and, oh boy, is this a good thing.’ – Emily Brill-Holland

We’re thrilled to see such positive feedback so soon after the launch. You can read the full review here.
