The Scotsman places Maresi among their top 5 novels for teens!
"Another powerful novel about women comes from Finnish author Maria Turtschaninoff. Maresi (Pushkin Children’s Books, £10.99) was published to international acclaim with rights sold in 11 countries and it’s not hard to see why. In an alternative world where women have no rights at all, Maresi has been at the sanctuary of the Red Abbey since she was 13, a unique place where women can do as they please. When Jai arrives, clothes stiff with dirt and scars on her back, they quickly become friends. However, Jai is being chased by her remorseless father and a terrible clash is inevitable. This dark, deceptively simple story is a great addition to the growing feminist fantasy genre."
